From Chicago, Illinois, USA:
I had salmonella in December. Recent blood work indicated my A1c level is up, as well as glucose levels. The doctor added Januvia to my metformin. My daily levels are still high. Can salmonella have a long-term affect on type 2 diabetes?
Not usually. The likely pattern is that the A1c might be up during the time that corresponds to the infection. Once the infection was treated or it resolved, the A1c should go back to its usual level.
