Increased Diabetes Risk with Antibiotic Use

Taking at least two courses of prescribed antibiotics was associated with a higher risk of developing type 2 diabetes, according to a new study. The likelihood of getting diabetes increased by 8% after receiving two to five courses of penicillin. For patients who took two to five courses of quinolones, the risk rose by 15%.
