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.

Let us know how your results went.
