Glucose in urine what does it mean? This is the first time I have ever had this! I also had a big meal before test

Kidney limits: Glucose tends to start spilling into the urine any time the blood sugar content exceeds its ability to reclaim it as it filters the blood. This usually equates to a blood sugar of 170 mg/dl or above, that is common to those with type 1 or 2 diabetes.It can also occur at times when the blood sugar is up for other reasons. Time to see your doc. ...Read more

Toddler had glucose in urine but her pediatrician said she does not have diabetes what can cause this?

Toddler had glucose in urine but her pediatrician said she does not have diabetes what can cause this?

Usually normal: The diagnosis of diabetes is based on the blood glucose. Urine glucose has filtered through the kidneys and is dependent on a kidney threshold (similar to a dam wall). Some children have a low threshold allowing a normal blood glucose level to filter into the urine resulting in a positive test. Also a rise in glucose can be transient coinciding with stress, which can be an infection. ...Read more

Why do I have high glucose on my blood test, but not in my urine test?

How high?: Glucose can be reabsorbed by the kidneys until the blood level exceeds about 130 mg/dl. Once the blood glucose exceeds 130 glucose starts "spilling" out in the urine. Blood glucose can therefore be abnormally high, up to about 130 without any evidence of glucose in the urine. Once above that level typically it will show up in the urine as well. ...Read more

Is a high hct hgb glucose and URINE UROBILINOGEN something to worry about?

How high?: All laboratory results need to be interpreted in the clinical context and the doctor who ordered the tests is usually in the best position to do that. Talk to the doctor who ordered the tests. Having said that, it would have been helpful to have the actual values rather than your interpretation of "high".
Wish you good health! - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually.

Ketones can be: Concentrated in the urine any time you go for a significant period of time fasting. The concentration depends upon your state of hydration and amount of urine production. Some people spill glucose into the urine without elevated blood sugar due to genetic defects. Most don't spill until glucose greater than 189-200. ...Read more

Daughter had 3 urine culture last one had glucose but came back negative what else could cause cloudy urine no bacteria either?

Normal finding: The urine is one of the trash removal systems of your body. Urates (the origin of the name urine) found in the pee are breakdown products of protein metabolism. They tend to cloud up when the urine is more concentrated. Urine can certainly cloud up when there is lots of bacteria or white cells, during a UTI, but it can do so when it's not infected & just doing its job. ...Read more

Few issues: It is abnormal to have blood in thevurine. So this must be accounted for. Now if you are on a period or kidney stones this may account for the blood. But must know the cause. So hydrate well and go back to doctor for another sample to see if the blood is gone. If not you may have to do further testing ...Read more

Blood Sugar (Definition)

The blood sugar concentration or blood glucose level is the amount of glucose (sugar) present in the blood of a human or animal. The body naturally tightly regulates blood glucose levels as a part of metabolic homeostasis. Glucose is the primary source of energy for the body's cells, and blood lipids (in the form of fats and oils) are primarily ...Read more
