Hi. I just started taking Bactrim DS because I have been having frequent UTI infections. I have recently been hospitalized for one that went septic! Now my Urologist wants me to take one a day for the next four months. I know this will affect my creatinine, but the Nephrologist said it will not be too much. However, my blood sugars are running around 150-200 and I am on glorified and Lantus insulin...100 units each night. Any suggestions? Will this change as I will be on this med for several months? Thanks.
Hello..I am 59 and taking allopurinol for years now. Although it's keeping my uric acid levels around 7.5..I have also gained a lot of weight..has anyone had success with another drug. I am the heaviest I have ever been and desperation is setting in. What's the point of keeping your uric acid low but exerting more force on your gout toe with the additional weight.
