Can Flucloxacillin 4000 mg a day affect urine glucose?

Posted , 4 users are following.

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?
