    i suppose it depends on the antibiotic- i would also surmise that any effect on the GLC would be secondary to primary effectors of hormonal swings during illness- that is, if you have an infection, your baseline GLC is likely to go up, correlated to the severity of the infection, due to hormones released which increase insulin resistance- the antibiotic effects may be secondary, either through interacting with this milieu, or, if they work and bring ur infection level down, than this perforce will lower your baseline GLC back to normal- moral of the story: infection (+ antibiotics) causes wider fluctuations in GLC, where more accucks are likely needed to better control the swings- good luck
