I have been taking penicillin for a week for a gum infection, and my blood sugars have been very high. Granted I was not checking them routinely before but just in the last few days. When I get up they have been the highest. 191 yesterday and 204 this morning. Not taking anything for the diabetes, but have not lost weight since being diagnosed.
Does penicillin cause my blood sugar to be higher? I AM a diabetic?

No what is making it high is the infection. You're not on something for diabetes? I'd say call your dr about it, because while you are treating an infection, you can't be having a blood sugar that high.
