What Is The Difference Between Diabetes And Glycosuria
Disease vs. symptom: Diabetes is a metabolic disease caused by not producing enough Insulin or developing Insulin resistance. Glycosuria means the presence of glucose in the urine, which occurs either when the glucose levels in the blood are too high (as in diabetes) or when glucose transport mechanism in kidney tubules is congenitally defective(rare condition). ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Unrelated conditions: Diabetes mellitus (dm) is a condition of excessively high sugars which can cause one to void large amounts of urine frequently. Type 1 dm is caused by pancreatic failure so Insulin is required. Type 2 dm is resistance to Insulin or inefficient use. Diabetes insipidus is voiding large amounts of urine frequently due to either kidney or brain disorder, both unrelated to sugar & insulin. ...Read more
One 2 hi, one 2 low: If u fast for 8 hours (FBS) blood sugar should be between 70 and 100. Hypo=low, hyper=high, glyc=sugar, emia=in the blood. If ur FBS is repeatedly between 100-126, you are in a state known as 'impaired glucose tolerance'. If ur FBS > 126, you are diabetic, which is by far the cause of hyperglycemia. Hypoglycemia usually is caused by too much Insulin in blood, or too strong rx of diabetes. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
No direct one: Diabetes in and of itself doesn't cause any change in hemoglobin. There is, however, glycohemoglobin, or hemoglobin A1c that is a direct measure of one's glucose control. That has directly to do with diabetes. Plain hemoglobin is usually affected in patients with kidney failure as their erythropoetin production fails. Also, anemia of chronic disease given many comorbidities with dm is another one. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
2 different diseases: Diabetes is a disorder where your blood sugar runs high. Addison's disease is a disease at the adrenal gland where it fails to produce its hormones. They have nothing to do with each other except there is a condition called polyglandular syndrome where you can get both diabetes and addison's disease at the same time. ...Read more
They are the same: I think that you want the difference between the glycosuria of diabetes mellitus (spilling glucose due to hyperglycemia) and spilling glucose due to the inabilitiy of the kidney to completely reabsorb filtered glucose in someone with euglycemia. The first is high glucose overpowering the reabsorbtion, the second is from weak reabsorbtion. The second is probably harmless, the first is a bad disease. ...Read more
Disease vs function: Your kidneys are designed to reclaim all the sugar in all blood filtered through & will do so if the glucose level stays below ~170. At higher levels, whatever the cause, some is lost in the urine which produces renal glycosuria. T1DM is a condition where your body doesn't produce the insulin needed to carry glucose into the cells.Over time the blood sugar rises to high levels producing symptoms ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Depends: It only really matters if you are type i and occurs when the sugars get really high and put of control and signal danger . It is when the diabetic should seek professional( probably er) care. Type ii diabetics do not go into ketoacidosis ...Read more

Completely different: Glucose is a basic sugar with calories to provide energy. Sorbitol is a non-absorbable sugar alcohol which is used to sweeten foods which are often labeled, sugar free. It causes bloating and diarrhea in some. Sugar free foods are not calorie free and often contain more fat to make them taste better. ...Read more
