Doxycycline and blood sugar

Common Questions and Answers about Doxycycline and blood sugar


Avatar m tn Anyways, he prescribed me Doxycycline (200mg/day) for a week. I'm on the sixth day and the irritation AFTER urinating seems to be coming back. It's a fullness sensation that is very uncomfortable. It has markedly IMPROVED over where it was a week ago, but it seems to be coming back the last two days. Here is the gist: How effective is Doxycycline on NSU and how soon should I be "cured"? I am I just worrying? Will a week of Doxycycline be enough to nip this NSU in the bud?
Avatar f tn Diabetes not only causes frequent urination but also numbness and tingling sensations.I would advise you to get a fasting blood sugar and Hb A1 C test done. If dibetes is ruled out then other possibilities which need to be ruled out are prostatitis(inflammation of the prostate gland),interstitial cystitis,overactive bladder syndrome,stroke and other neurological diseases,urinary incontinence,bladder cancer(rare) and bladder dysfunction . Please consult a urologist in that case.
1390055 tn?1365618655 He wasn't aware of what I was using the medication for at the time (he probably thought just for acne or something), so he said I should use my mother's diabetes testing kit. My blood sugar comes back 88, and I retest it just to confirm, and it's 86 a few minutes later. So diabetes isn't causing it. But in actuality, it turns out I probably really did have an infection. But I'm not entirely sure, which is the reason of my posting.

Avatar m tn Have you told your Lyme doc about your blood sugar issues, and have you told your diabetes about your Lyme situation? There may well be interactions between your situation and your meds AND having Lyme and diabetes that both docs need to coordinate treatment. Both docs need to be aware of the other doc and your situation.
Avatar n tn but the majority of times blood came out in the sperm, or only after ejaculation during urination, or both in the sperm and the urine. once i woke up without having had sex that week and urinated blood. i tested my blood, sperm, and urine and the only abnormality was a high psa level. my dr said it is very rare and is that high in 40/50 year old. i did a biopsy for prostate cancer and my dr said that everything was ok. after the biopsy, i waqs back to normal.
Avatar n tn This just happened again to my thumb after 10 years and my cardiologist prescribed high blood pressure meds...and I DON'T have high blood pressure, I've been running for 25 years! If anyone has a diagnosis please share...I know your frustration.
Avatar m tn Neurology appointments - it's actually typical to wait months, so if you have an appointment in a few weeks, that's actually pretty good. But I do understand that isn't much comfort at the moment. You have a lot going on, both in your long past, and recent medical history.
Avatar n tn it does sound antibiotic candidasis, im using a antifungal cream and antifungal powder, and its controlling it, im also drinking baking soda to help the yeast inside of me, and im taking garlic pills. plus i am drinking nothing but water and cut out alot of sugar, so im hoping in due time, it will help.
Avatar f tn It's almost impossible to control yeast infections and clear acne when consuming moderate to large amounts of sugar. You can support and balance your blood sugar levels with the mineral Chromium picolinate. This mineral is also used for weight control, acne, diabetes and cholesterol. Once you balance your hormones, clear the yeast infection and normalize your blood sugar you will do well.
Avatar m tn The headache increases along with a feeling of fatigue and I have contant post nasal drip and some infrequent frontal sinus pain (and a history of sinusitis). Perhaps important...?
Avatar f tn Then a neurologist also did a lymes test on me and it came up negative too. I was on doxycycline for another condition and read on the internet that doxycycline also cures lymes disease so I thought "Great I'm killing two birds with one stone" but it had no effect what so ever on how I felt. But both Lymes test, with my GP and with the neurologists came up negative. I am currently in Hampton Roads Va, and I cannot find an LLMD. I just do not know what to do. It is ruining my life.
Avatar f tn Signs of Deficient Stomach Acid Gas, bloating and burping shortly after a meal could be lack of HCl Constipation Diarrhea Feeling of fullness or food not digesting Heartburn and/or gastric relux (sometimes too much HCl but most often not enough) Bad breath Foul smelling stools Loose stools in the early morning Food allergies Dialated blood vessles on the cheeks and nose - Rosacea Pernicious anemia or iron deficiency Anal Itching Nausea especially after taking vitamins and minerals Weak or crack
Avatar n tn Hi, just thought i post some of my results, as ive had CRP for the past 8 years i remember being on minocyline and trying to take acidophillius and even though i was clearing the good bacteria in the acidophillius and bio yogurts i was eating caused it to come back rapidly, i know that long term use of minocyline can be horrible, i was on it for 3 years and i had to start having blood test regulary, it ruined the colour of my eyes and skin so i looked constantly unwell, so i cam off 4 months ago
Avatar m tn wrist and knee discomfort that comes and goes, neck cracks, feeling off balance, temporary brain fog, crawling sensations that migrate...ringin in ears.. Now im wondering how many more days this will last. I would like to hear from those lymies who are also on treatment. First would like to know if this flare up is common to you too? Does my ab treatment appear normal? Does it seem ok to experience a biggest flare up after a year of treatment?
Avatar m tn I would advise you to get a fasting blood sugar and Hb A1 C test done. If diabetes is ruled out then other possibilities which need to be ruled out are prostatitis (inflammation of the prostate gland), interstitial cystitis, overactive bladder syndrome, stroke and other neurological diseases, urinary incontinence, bladder cancer(rare) and bladder dysfunction . Please consult a urologist in that case. I hope it helps. Take care and regards.
Avatar m tn I do tend to be hypoglycemic, and I thought that may have somehow been the cause. But I've felt the low blood sugar symptoms for years and the lightheadedness is always accompanied by shakiness. The vertigo and hypoglycemia sometimes combine to really take me for a ride, but other times I'm dead steady when the vertigo hits. Thus, I don't think it's really a blood sugar issue. My blood pressure at the doctor was very high (170/100).
1353650 tn?1429466974 My husband and I have been on a strict diet for about a year+ , staying away from sugar and white flour. We eat small amounts of fruit, eat very high fiber - add fiber to our drinks, only drink water, decaf green tea or treat ourselves to a cup of decaf. coffee. When we first started becoming ill is when we noticed we had to change how we ate. I am glad we got into the habit because of the large dose of antibiotics we take. You must be strict about your diet.
Avatar n tn cut down on processed foods and high sugar foods and get more whole grains , fruits and veggies. the higher fiber diets help your bowels stay healthy too since it helps the 'good' bacteria to "stick' to your bowels. you know you don't have a std going on causing your symptoms.
Avatar n tn i took my blood pressure and it was elevated at 141/101. i never has blood pressure issues before. i went to the doc the next day and reported that my headache feels like my whole head is filled with fluid and i have shoulder and neck pain. she treated me for an atypical migraine and then gave me water pills for the blood pressure and gave me an order for an MRI which i will have tomorrow. i have a family history of aneurysms and my brother has a borderline chiari.
Avatar n tn Just like many of you, I went to the doctor about three weeks ago and the first thing she said also was Herpes.She took a blood test and a normal pap and I still haven't received any results yet.At first I was pretty sure it was going to end up being Herpes but when I read the first comment posted and it sounded identical to mine, that made me feel a lot better.
1390055 tn?1365618655 I looked up Diabetes and things seemed to match up, but my mother allowed me to use her diabetic blood testing kit, and my blood sugar was 88. I ran it a second time, and it was 86. A urine culture done by my urologist less than a week after the treatment had finished found no signs of diabetes in my urine, either. My primary care physician told me I definitely do not have it, as well as my urologist.
Avatar n tn 12th April 1999 The pancreas has two important roles - one is to produce digestive enzymes that are passed into the digestive tract through a duct, and the other is to release hormones into the blood to control sugar levels. So the pancreas is both an exocrine and an endocrine gland. The pancreatic enzymes can become a danger to the pancreas itself if they become activated within the pancreatic tissues, and this is what happens in pancreatitis.
Avatar n tn I've been booked in twice to have a biopsy done, the numbing cream I put on beforehand actually caused irritation and INCREASED BURNING, dialated the red blood cells (also no white blood cells found, definetely not infection) and the specialist said there was nowhere to really put the local anesthetic in, without giving me murderous pain (i was jumping off the seat in burning pain).
Avatar f tn You can google it. PM me if you can't find it. For me, I gave up sugar and it helped a lot. Others go gluten free etc. These Bartonella lesions and rashes that are streaked, are very distinct looking. Most of us take probiotics, magnesium, some take Vitamin D (I became deficient in it) as well as B12 but I would check with your Dr to be sure. I take more supplements suggested by my LLMD .
Avatar m tn Very happy to find this board as I wanted to throw out a few questions to the informed group. I came down with a nasty sickness in early October and after a slew of blood tests including 3 different Western Blot Tests which all came back negative I decided to do a full panel with Igenex and it came back positive for Lyme and babesia. My doctor who is semi-lyme literate (says she studied under Dr. Horowitz in NY though for how long no idea) perscribed Zithromax and Mepron.
Avatar n tn Have had urinalysis, urine culture, pelvic ultrasound of ovaries and bladder - all normal. No blood, no sugar, no protein, etc. Examinations for yeast and bacerial infections were negative. Was treated for possible urethritis with 3 day dose of Levaquin of 250 mg, then 3 days of 500 mg Levquin, then switched to doxycline 200 mg a day. Just started 2nd day of doxycycline and feeling no better - not sure when I would notice anything. No recent sexual activity.
Avatar f tn The Infectious disease doctor treats with Doxycycline/amoxicillin as well and says I DO have lyme. Been taking the meds since DEC 5th 07 and am feeling more energy and overall well being increased. I have had long term fatigue that increased in the last 6 months of 07 with lots of joint/body pain. Knees, elbows, shoulders, shoulder blades, neck stiffness, etc which has reduced as well but still flaring up at times.
Avatar n tn On April 16th, I had tingling in my hands and feelings of pure exhaustion. My blood pressure was lower than normal (for me) and I felt somewhat light headed. I had my girlfriend bring me to the ER where I had labs, urine and chest x-ray, all of which were normal. A few days later, I was working in art class (still feeling very sick) with an x-acto knife that wasn't especially clean and jabbed myself in the thumb. It'd been 11 years since my last tetanus booster.
3054080 tn?1358726456 I did have a physical for my insurance at the beginning of the year and I was told everything was normal. No issues with blood sugar (although diabetes does run in my family) and my cholesterol was good. I am also within the appropriate weight range for my height and age. I have always been an active person, and was determined even with my neck issues that I was going to stay fit and not let it get me down.
