Is sugar in my urine at my first prenatal doctor visit a sign of diabetes?

Maybe: While the presence of sugar in urine can be a sign of diabetes, in pregnancy it's often due to recent intake of sugar containing or high carbohydrate food. The resulting spike in blood sugar often spills into the urine. Nevertheless it's good to be checked earlier for gestational diabetes if this recurs. ...Read more

Very abnormal: With several blood sugars well-over 250 mg/dl i would expect drinking and urinating a lot, even waking up at night for this. However, the meter you're using may not be accurate. Hands need to be washed & completely dry. He needs to see his doctor asap because type 1 diabetes has to be considered even with a low blood sugar one time.

Dehydration is one: Although it shouldn't cause seizure it causes high protein in blood and ketones. Especially when associated with much alcohol or severe dieting.

My doctor says im almost a borderline dibetic i check my sugar at home most of the time its over 100 what's a normal sugar level ?

Less than 100 mg/dL: Normal fasting blood sugar is between 65-99 mg/dl. This needs to be confirmed in a lab because home meters are not considered accurate enough to make a diagnosis. A hba1c may also be helpful. For some, undergoing a 2 hour glucose tolerance test may help in terms of identifying post-prandial blood sugar problems and early diabetes when the fasting information may not be enough. ...Read more

Could be DKA: Hi. Ketones in the urine of a diabetic could be diabetic ketoacidosis (DKA). Is your friend a type 1 or type 2 diabetic; either can get DKA, but type 1's more prone. This is likely if your friend is very sick. If so, he/she should contact his/her doc immediately or go to the ER. Ketones can be seen normally with fasting, so if your friend is NOT sick and is fasting, it's probably not a problem. ...Read more
