Will high bloodsugar cause low creatin levels in urine? I had blood sugar levels of 300 and above and recently took a drug test that came back having low creatin levels.

It is not dangerous, but most drug tests will be considered "adulterated" - a failed test - if the creatinine is below 20. Get your diabetes under control asap. Continued high sugars are dangerous to your health. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Dr. Atkins: Not according to Dr. Atkins.Get a more detailed answer ›
Different approach: It's very hard to measure the sodium in your diet outside of a research protocol. Try this instead: never add salt at the table unless you've tasted it and you have to have it. Avoid known salty foods like potato chips, pretzels and salted nuts. Be careful about fast food and convenience foods which tend to be salty. Follow these steps and you'll be on the best low salt diet that's reasonable ...Read more

Be careful! Good luck ...Read more

It's possible: Hi. Odd question. It's possible to have a serum glucose over 200 with none in the urine, but the higher above 200 the serum glucose gets, the less likely none shows up in the urine. It has to do with the tubular threshold for glucose, which does show a bell-shaped curve distribution. ...Read more

The key is that if you eat enough calories to gain weight but do it from fats and protein alone, it'll make you sick, so most people end up eating substantially less. Try it and see (myfitnesspal is a great app for this). Every 3500 cal missed (or so), another pound will fall off. ...Read more
