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.
