Has anyone ever used glucose test strips to test for CSF? If so, how reliable do you find it to be?
I’ve had clear drainage from my nose since April and for a while I didn’t think anything of it. Until I eventually came across an article that talked about CSF leaks. So I started to pay more attention to it and noticed that it happened more when I was bending my head down, sometimes backwards,(but then I feel something draining down my throat sometimes), or when I’m straining on the toilet (maybe TMI sorry:blush:) or coughing.
I used a blood glucose test and ended up having two reads of 20mg then the next two were ‘Lo’.
Also, has anyone ever had a coughing fit that lead to a fever?
Thank you in advance!
