Calling all

Armchair Dr's ...or Anyone with Google Degrees of Medicine: Please comment

The antibiotics warning says not to take if diabetic, May raise sugars ....

To me, This means: Can't these Antibiotics I was given today for an infection because it will mess with my glucose lvl? I think it can If i understand this right.

Shouldn't I wait to take the the 3 hr test after I am done with the antibiotics? Or not start the antibiotics until I take the test?

Of Course, Gotta call the Dr back in the morning. It seems they should know this .... Not sure. Thoughts?

Good question!!! Sounds logical but I have no idea. Sorry I am not any help :(

Yeah, I think I would push to not take the three hour until you are done with the antibiotics. Or at least insist on extra testing afterwards.

Call the nurse immediately and ask. I would think that treating the infection is of utmost importance, especially being preggo. But I understand your confusion, so call the office and ask them to make sure it's okay.

It makes sense to me. . .

I would be calling the office to clarify, as well.

I really, really hope you pass the 3 hour test with no problems and that the UTI clears up quick!

And YAY for MT wearing shoes, and saying all done, & happy birthday. Such a big boy :)

I hope you're doing better and the doctor told you what to do.

Your thoughts make sense but I have no idea!
