Will ticarcillin-clavulanate affect my other health problems?

If you have diabetes, you will have to check your urine for sugar regularly while taking ticarcillin-clavulanate (Timentin). It's important that you don't use the tablets called Clinitest, because this might create false positive blood sugar results while taking ticarcillin-clavulanate. Instead use TesTape or Clinistix.
