I am having fever for about a month now. So, I have done a master health checkup and the report shows raised PLBS 184, SGPT 121, LDL 112 and fatty liver. My chest x-ray PA view shows right lower zone soft tissue opacity. Because of the soft tissue opacity fever pack, thyroid profile, blood culture and sensitivity, sputum AFB, sputum culture and sensitivity and sputum gram stain tests were done. The results were normal except the gram stain test results. The gram stain sputum culture conventional showed pus cells and epithelial cells occasionally, bacteria - gram positive cocci, gram negative rods. Sputum culture and sensitivity showed pus cell - occasional, epithelial cells - occasional, bacteria - gram positive cocci and gram negative rods and growth observed - normal flora. So, kindly explain the above results and advise me. My past medical history includes fistula-in-ano, hypertension and vitamin D deficiency. Currently, I am taking Telma 40 mg and Lumia 60k.

Gram positive cocci and gram negative rods are found in both sputum gram stain and sputum culture and sensitivity test. But, in the sputum culture and sensitivity test the growth observed is normal flora. Here my doctor said it is normal. My body temperature is always high and I lost 2.5 kg in 25 days. Please explain this. What type of antibiotics or medicine do I need to take if I am suffering from bacterial pneumonia?

As per your advice I have given for sputum fungal stain test. Please clarify me the following points. Are gram positive cocci and gram negative rods found in both sputum for gram stain and sputum for culture and sensitivity test normal? I was diagnosed with borderline diabetes before five years, but till now I never took medicine for it. I controlled my diet very well and so my blood sugar fasting never raised above 100 and post meal after two hours is always between 150 and 190. My HbA1c is always below 6.4. Till now I did not suffer with any diabetic symptoms. Do I need medicine for diabetes? I took antibiotic tablet Cifran for 10 days and one tetanus injection just before eight days of my blood test. Whether that antibiotic tablet affected the test report? Please guide.
