Hi and welcome to the board. You absolutely have to get your blood sugar under control. You will never be able to get rid of your infection otherwise. And you need to see your doctor again for more medication.

How long have you been diabetic and what are your blood sugars running? Have you had an A1C test done? Please let us know how you are doing.
