Went to doctor for flu and she tested my urine and said i has sugar in my urine and called it glucosuria? Scared i might have a precursor for diabetes
Non-specific finding: Glucosuria typically occurs when the blood glucose level exceeds the kidney's ability to reabsorb it. In non-diabetics that is around 180mg/dl.

For this, you go without water as long as you can, comfortably, then see if your urine SG is over 1.020. If not, begin the diabetes insipidus workup. Vitamin assays are good for general health but not key. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
