Glucosuria can easily be mis-measured so diabetes is not diagnosed that way. Talk to your dr. About your concern. ...Read more

Proper workup: The workup of polyuria includes a check of the blood glucose which I assume was okay, BUN and creatinine which I will assume are okay, and a check of urine concentrating ability.
