Sugar In Urine (Definition)

Glucose in urine also known as 'glycosuria' is mostly seen in diabetes mellitus with elevated blood sugar. Very very rarely ( 1 in 1000 or even less) it is seen in a defect of kidney ...Read more

What are the symptoms of renal glycosuria?

What are the symptoms of renal glycosuria?

There are none: Some people's kidneys, by birth or sometimes by medication / toxin effect, simply waste glucose despite the blood sugar being normal. Some glucose is always filtered in the glomeruli, and a few folks have tubules that aren't good at reabsorbing it. When it's genetic, it's perfectly compatible with a lifetime of excellent health. ...Read more

What is the main difference between benign and renal glycosuria?

What is the main difference between benign and renal glycosuria?

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

How are renal glycosuria and diabetes different?

How are renal glycosuria and diabetes different?

2 different things: For reasons we don't understand, sometimes the kidneys may allow some glucose to slip out into the urine even when the blood level of glucose is normal. This can be detected by a urine dipstick test. In diabetes, the blood level of glucose will be high. In some diabetics, the blood glucose gets so high that the sugar spills over into the urine also. ...Read more

Myself 48 years ,my son 20yrs , daughter 11years are having Renal glycosuria since birth , Myself had taken no treatment since 1984 ,any treatment now?

Myself 48 years ,my son 20yrs , daughter 11years are having Renal glycosuria since birth , Myself had taken no treatment since 1984 ,any treatment now?

No Rx needed, but I: recommend period screening for diabetes with HgbA1c or 2H PP blood glucose, to ensure that the ongoing glycosuria is not a reflection of diabetes, which would present the same way. Renal glycosuria is influenced by blood sugar levels, so focus on a diet with foods with a low glycemic index instead of simple sugars like pop and juice and stay well hydrated to minimize risk of kidney stones. ...Read more

Have GTT test. Blood glucose normal. O hour and 1 hour urine glucose negative but 2 hour urine glucose is trace. False positive or renal glycosuria?

Have GTT test. Blood glucose normal. O hour and 1 hour urine glucose negative but 2 hour urine glucose is trace. False positive or renal glycosuria?

Urine glucose: If your GTT is OK and the 2 hour urine only a trace high, I don't think you have anything to worry about. That said, be careful with your food and drink intake. ...Read more

Can symptoms of nondiabetic renal glycosuria happen only in the evening? (invert sleep cycle too) see nephrologist soon, +ketostix urine=sweet smell

Can symptoms of nondiabetic renal glycosuria happen only in the evening? (invert sleep cycle too) see nephrologist soon, +ketostix urine=sweet smell

This doesn't add up: Non-diabetic renal glycosuria (i.e., the kidney spills glucose despite normal blood levels) doesn't produce symptoms. Urine odor doesn't reflect glucose levels at all reliably. Ketostix often yield +1 for no reason, or because you're hungry. With dysautonomia and gastroparesis, is there perhaps a misunderstanding, with diabetes a possibility? You have a right to full information. ...Read more

What is the difference between Renal Glycosuria and Diabetes Mellitus? How to explain relationship between intraversical volume and pressure? Thanks

What is the difference between Renal Glycosuria and Diabetes Mellitus?
How to explain relationship between intraversical volume and pressure? Thanks

Relationship: Renal glycosuria is a condition in which sugar is excreted in the urine due to a kidney conditon. Diabetes mellitus is due to insufficient insulin production in the pancras. Intravesical volume increases pressure in the bladder. ...Read more
