Insulin is the most effective anti-diabetic drug and can be used for sugar control the time of infection. At the same time, adequate urinary tract infection treatment using appropriate antibiotic course is essential.
Hospitalisation may be necessary if dietary intake is affected grossly and if fever is persistently high..
