Just wondering if anyone has experienced this before... I have been fighting a pretty bad sinus infection (because i let it go too long, so sick of doctor's offices). I was on 3 different antibiotics over a 2 month period. Omnicef was the last one I took. That was almost 5 weeks ago. I developed chronic diarrhea on the 3rd day of taking Omnicef, though I was warned of this side effect, I was also told it would only last a few days after I stopped the medication. Well, like I said, that was 5 weeks ago. And here I am, still with the 'bowel problems'. I finally made an appointment after seeing what i think was blood in my stool. I am still waiting on the results. However my doc already told me he is sure it's C. diff. I am just a little concerned how this could effect my diabetes. It hasn't seemed to yet, other than the shakiness I have been experiencing for the last 5 days, which makes me test my BG more to make sure I am not low (and I'm usually not) And I have also been feeling quite nauseated for the last few days, as well.. I am just more concerned of becoming too dehydrated. Lord knows after reading some horror stories on here, the hospital is the last place I want to end up :)
So, I also wonder/worry, could this be something else? diabetes related GI problems? or even something else autoimmune (since they often go hand-in-hand with T1)
Any feedback is greatly appreciated!!
