It can be done. : Uncontrolled Diabetes Mellitus is a frequent cause of recurrent Urinary tract infections(UTI). She will need an adjustment of her diabetic medications including adjustment of insulin dose, proper education on dietary restrictions, weight reduction, exercise and regular monitoring of home sugars and other measures including regular follow up with Primary care physician and endocrinologist.
