I have been having trouble clearing congestion from my chest using antibiotics and steroids to clear an infection. I've received a lot of help from the good people here and by doing a lot of huffing & puffing.
I have also been a type 2 diabetic from many years keeping things in check solely by watching what I eat. A month or two back my glucose level was considered too high and I was put on Metformin tablets. These seemed to work well and my count came down to 7.1 the lowest I've had it for quite a while. I ran out of test strips so did not test again until today and was very disappointed when it showed 20.1
I've been using antibiotic and steroids for a number of years to keep clear of infections but never noticed this effect before. Is this a usual effect or have I now another problem to sort out?
