How Are Glycosuria And Hypoglycemia Related
No: Glycosuria means blood in the urine, most commonly associated with diabetes, whereas hypolglycemia means low blood sugar, seen if subjects have administered too much Insulin or have an insulinoma. (insulin producing tumor) they are not related as a result of sugar in the urine leaking from the kidney causing the blood sugar to fall. Good question but the two are not related.See 1 more doctor answer
Glycosuria: Means presence of sugar in the urine after a diet rich in abnormal amount of glucose or starches, and only then. Normally there is never sugar in urine. In diabetes, if blood sugars are high (>then 190mg%) the urine will have sugar present. So, an overwhelming amount of sugar that the Insulin could not push into the cells will be presented to the kidney and some will be spilled in the urine.See 1 more doctor answer
Abnormal urine study: Glycosuria is presence of glucose (sugar) in urine. Commonly found in uncontrolled diabetes, there are other rarer causes (eg. Type 2 renal tubular acidosis).Albuminuria is presence of protein in urine, and has many causes including diabetes. Because protein in the urine can cause or be a marker for kidney damage, it is very important for people with either of these to keep in close contact w doctor.See 1 more doctor answer
Probably not: 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.See 1 more doctor answer
Depends: The symptoms associated with glycosuria, where urine contains glucose, will vary depending on the cause. If associated with a high blood sugar (diabetes), such symptoms as urinary frequency and thirst are quite common. If associated with a normal blood glucose (renal glycosuria), there are usually no associated symptoms or adverse 'side' effects.See 1 more doctor answer
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).See 1 more doctor answer
Renal Overload: Glycosuria (or glucose in the urine) is caused by the kidneys (proximal renal tubules) being unable to reabsorb all the filtered glucose. Diabetes due to either Insulin resistance or lack of Insulin results in underutilization of glucose by your cells and hyperglycemia. Glycosuria usually occurs when blood glucose level exceeds 180 mg/dl.See 1 more doctor answer
Insulin if Diabetic: Glysosuria means glucose or sugar in the urine. Most common cause is diabetes. Primary diabetes can probably not be prevented and is due to insufficient or no Insulin production by the pancreas or production of Insulin antibodies. Secondary diabetes is most commonly caused by obesity, so avoid getting overweight. Glcosuria can occur normally in pregancy. Control hyerthyroidism and avoid xs alcohol.See 1 more doctor answer
Not directly: Glycosuria or sugar in the urine does not have any direct affect on body functions. However, there should not be any sugar in the urine unless there is loss of kidney function and/or high levels of sugar in blood (e.g. Due to diabetes). Excessively high blood sugar can be very serious, leading to neurological deterioration, nausea, vomiting, abdominal pain and even stupor or coma.See 1 more doctor answer
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.
Person gets diabetes: Weight gain and obesity, especially from overeating sugars and carbohydrates, can lead to "insulin resistance" disorder. The person's pancreas then has to work super hard to make enough insulin. The pancreas eventually burns out and cannot make enough Insulin. . . At which time the blood sugar will get so high that it spills through the kidneys and into the urine. He has diabetes now.See 1 more doctor answer
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.
