If cancer is a metabolic disease, why are we feeding children w/ DIPG lots of carbs & sugars...limited glucose should be helpful preventing growth?
Be discerning: Cancer is not a "metabolic disease" as represented on websites like the one you have been reading. It's the result of accumulated genetic mutations. You're not going to "limit glucose" in any case -- anything you eat gets turned into this, as it's the key fuel in your body. I trust you'll have the common sense to recognize when a website is offering complete disinformation -- many cancer sites do. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Most : Most people don't have sugar in their urine until their blood sugar is 250mg/dl or more. But some people will have sugar in their urine with normal blood levels of glucose. This is called renal glycosuria. It usually has little clinical significance. If your fasting blood sugar is elevated, you may have diabetes. If a blood glucose is done concurrently with finding sugar in your urine, you can sort out if you are just one of those people who spill sugar into the urine at normal blood glucose levels or if you may be diabetic.
