Dr. Shaym Puppala answered:

Is chromium associated with glycosuria?

Probably not

Blood
Too large an amount of a chromium supplement can have a variety of ill effects, but increasing sugar in the urine is not likely one of them. There are some studies that suggest chromium may help lower blood sugar, which would lower the chances of blood sugar showing up in the urine (gliycosuria). Of note, not all studies have shown benefit from chromium.
