Can Flucloxacillin 4000 mg a day affect urine glucose?
Bflare 8 hrs
I'm 40 male, 5'8", 140lb, white, British.
I've been experiencing frequent urination but no other symptoms. I went to the doctors today and they gave me a urine test.
She said there were traces of glucose and white blood cells in my urine. She has asked me to go in for a blood test and I think a Prostate psa test.
I forgot to tell the doctor that I had been on antibiotics for 7 days for a skin infection. I finished the course on Sunday and had a urine dipstick test on Wednesday morning.
Could the medication raise urine glucose levels?

Hi Bflare,

unlikely that the antibiotics would affect the urine blood sugar results.
