Susan, as a side note to possibly help you with you frequent UTI's. My late wife had ms for 27 years and had to self cathertize for most of them, causing tons of uti's. Her Dr. told me antibiotics would not help her anymore and she was going to succum to the infection. I googled and found a natural cure for uti's and it worked like a charm and saved her from it. She did pass 2 years later from a lung infection though. Anyways, I have shared this with many other woman who have had similar success. It's a simple sugar you can get from the healthfood store called D- Mannose powder or you can get it for half the cost at swansonvitamins.com. (NOW Brand). You are diabetic but the sugar is not readily absorbed into the body from what I've read, so the affect on your diabetes should be minimal, if any. If it doesn't get better in a couple days you should seek treatment options from your doctor if you haven't already. The stuff is amaizing and basically has no side effects and can be used as often as needed. I don't remember the dose- I think a teaspoon in water 3x/day. You can look it up online or experiment. Good luck!
