Recently, I developed a urinary tract infection. I have my diabetes under control but would like to know if the infection can cause my diabetes to spike. If anyone has an answer, it will be appreciated.

I love my Freestyle Freedom Lite Meter! If there's anything better, I'd sure like to hear about it!

A blood test found I had diabetes, since then I have lost three stone in weight and only weigh just under eight stone now, too. I had another blood test last week and my doctor now tells me my kidneys are bad.
