Hi welcome to HCM. Obviusly the infection is not coming under control and another drug will have to be chosen from the culture and sensitivity report with the hope that it will work. The symptoms are all due to UTI except vomiting which may be due to acidity. Thankfully your sugar is under control so it is likely that the UTI will also soon respond to treatment with changed medication. The serum creatinine however needs rigorous follow up.
