What are the symptoms of renal glycosuria?

What are the symptoms of renal glycosuria?

There are none: Some people's kidneys, by birth or sometimes by medication / toxin effect, simply waste glucose despite the blood sugar being normal. Some glucose is always filtered in the glomeruli, and a few folks have tubules that aren't good at reabsorbing it. When it's genetic, it's perfectly compatible with a lifetime of excellent health. ...Read more

Sugar In Urine (Definition)

Glucose in urine also known as 'glycosuria' is mostly seen in diabetes mellitus with elevated blood sugar. Very very rarely ( 1 in 1000 or even less) it is seen in a defect of kidney ...Read more

Can symptoms of nondiabetic renal glycosuria happen only in the evening? (invert sleep cycle too) see nephrologist soon, +ketostix urine=sweet smell

Can symptoms of nondiabetic renal glycosuria happen only in the evening? (invert sleep cycle too) see nephrologist soon, +ketostix urine=sweet smell

This doesn't add up: Non-diabetic renal glycosuria (i.e., the kidney spills glucose despite normal blood levels) doesn't produce symptoms. Urine odor doesn't reflect glucose levels at all reliably. Ketostix often yield +1 for no reason, or because you're hungry. With dysautonomia and gastroparesis, is there perhaps a misunderstanding, with diabetes a possibility? You have a right to full information. ...Read more

Sugar in urine: Present in diabetes mellitus or some kidney conditions where sugar leaks through the kidneys. Blood sugar should be checked if glycosuria is found. ...Read more

What is the main difference between benign and renal glycosuria?

What is the main difference between benign and renal glycosuria?

They are the same: I think that you want the difference between the glycosuria of diabetes mellitus (spilling glucose due to hyperglycemia) and spilling glucose due to the inabilitiy of the kidney to completely reabsorb filtered glucose in someone with euglycemia. The first is high glucose overpowering the reabsorbtion, the second is from weak reabsorbtion. The second is probably harmless, the first is a bad disease. ...Read more

How are renal glycosuria and diabetes different?

How are renal glycosuria and diabetes different?

2 different things: For reasons we don't understand, sometimes the kidneys may allow some glucose to slip out into the urine even when the blood level of glucose is normal. This can be detected by a urine dipstick test. In diabetes, the blood level of glucose will be high. In some diabetics, the blood glucose gets so high that the sugar spills over into the urine also. ...Read more

What is the difference between type 1 diabetes and renal glycosuria?

What is the difference between type 1 diabetes and renal glycosuria?

Renal glycosuria..: Implies a disorder where kidney leaks glucose into urine , even though blood sugar levels normal diabetes not well controlled leak sugar into urine when blood sugar > 220 or so. ...Read more

Myself 48 years ,my son 20yrs , daughter 11years are having Renal glycosuria since birth , Myself had taken no treatment since 1984 ,any treatment now?

Myself 48 years ,my son 20yrs , daughter 11years are having Renal glycosuria since birth , Myself had taken no treatment since 1984 ,any treatment now?

No Rx needed, but I: recommend period screening for diabetes with HgbA1c or 2H PP blood glucose, to ensure that the ongoing glycosuria is not a reflection of diabetes, which would present the same way. Renal glycosuria is influenced by blood sugar levels, so focus on a diet with foods with a low glycemic index instead of simple sugars like pop and juice and stay well hydrated to minimize risk of kidney stones. ...Read more

Have GTT test. Blood glucose normal. O hour and 1 hour urine glucose negative but 2 hour urine glucose is trace. False positive or renal glycosuria?

Have GTT test. Blood glucose normal. O hour and 1 hour urine glucose negative but 2 hour urine glucose is trace. False positive or renal glycosuria?

Urine glucose: If your GTT is OK and the 2 hour urine only a trace high, I don't think you have anything to worry about. That said, be careful with your food and drink intake. ...Read more

What is the difference between Renal Glycosuria and Diabetes Mellitus? How to explain relationship between intraversical volume and pressure? Thanks

What is the difference between Renal Glycosuria and Diabetes Mellitus?
How to explain relationship between intraversical volume and pressure? Thanks

Relationship: Renal glycosuria is a condition in which sugar is excreted in the urine due to a kidney conditon. Diabetes mellitus is due to insufficient insulin production in the pancras. Intravesical volume increases pressure in the bladder. ...Read more

Why are proximal tubular cells not affected in chronic renal failure and thereby not causing glucosuria?

Why are proximal tubular cells not affected in chronic renal failure and thereby not causing glucosuria?

Good question: Chronic renal disease is most often caused by damage to the blood vessels or the glomeruli / filters, leaving the proximal tubular cells able to work on however much filtrate is present. ...Read more

How does glycosuria affect body functions?

Emily Lu Dr. Lu
1 doctor agreed:
How does glycosuria affect body functions?

Not directly: Glycosuria or sugar in the urine does not have any direct affect on body functions. However, there should not be any sugar in the urine unless there is loss of kidney function and/or high levels of sugar in blood (e.g. Due to diabetes). Excessively high blood sugar can be very serious, leading to neurological deterioration, nausea, vomiting, abdominal pain and even stupor or coma. ...Read more

Is chromium associated with glycosuria?

Is chromium associated with glycosuria?

Probably not: Too large an amount of a chromium supplement can have a variety of ill effects, but increasing sugar in the urine is not likely one of them. There are some studies that suggest chromium may help lower blood sugar, which would lower the chances of blood sugar showing up in the urine (gliycosuria). Of note, not all studies have shown benefit from chromium. ...Read more

Why does hyperglycemia cause glycosuria?

Why does hyperglycemia cause glycosuria?

Osmosis: High sugar in the blood is filtered through osmosis, by the kidney, into the urine, causing glycosuria. This results in an "osmotic diuresis" in which there is an increased volume of urine, leading to dehydration. ...Read more

Why do diabetics get glycosuria?

Emily Lu Dr. Lu
2 doctors agreed:
Why do diabetics get glycosuria?

Renal Overload: Glycosuria (or glucose in the urine) is caused by the kidneys(proximal renal tubules) being unable to reabsorb all the filtered glucose. Diabetes due to either Insulin resistance or lack of Insulin results in underutilization of glucose by your cells and hyperglycemia. Glycosuria usually occurs when blood glucose level exceeds 180 mg/dl. ...Read more

How can glycosuria be prevented?

How can glycosuria be prevented?

Insulin if Diabetic: Glysosuria means glucose or sugar in the urine. Most common cause is diabetes. Primary diabetes can probably not be prevented and is due to insufficient or no Insulin production by the pancreas or production of Insulin antibodies. Secondary diabetes is most commonly caused by obesity, so avoid getting overweight. Glcosuria can occur normally in pregancy. Control hyerthyroidism and avoid xs alcohol. ...Read more

Does glycosuria turn urine cloudy?

Does glycosuria turn urine cloudy?

Cloudy urine: No. Not directly but maybe indirectly. Incomplete voiding, resulting in sediment formation in urine is a common cause in diabetics. Also, diabetics are more prone to urinary tract infection which results is cloudy urine. ...Read more

Why does glycosuria result from weight gain?

Why does glycosuria result from weight gain?

Person gets diabetes: Weight gain and obesity, especially from overeating sugars and carbohydrates, can lead to "insulin resistance" disorder. The person's pancreas then has to work super hard to make enough insulin. The pancreas eventually burns out and cannot make enough Insulin . . . At which time the blood sugar will get so high that it spills through the kidneys and into the urine. He has diabetes now. ...Read more

Why does glycosuria occur in nephritic syndrome?

Why does glycosuria occur in nephritic syndrome?

Kidney damage: The glomeruli (tiny filters in the kidney) becoming damaged in nephrotic syndrome primarily permit the kidney to leak protein, however damage also can permit leakage of glucose/sugar and hence glycosuria. ...Read more
