My 2.5 yrs old daughter urine report. Color - pale yellow, appeatence - turbid, ph- acidic, specific gravity- 1.015, protein-traces, urine glucose-nil?

Nothing stands out: What you describe, except for the turbid appearance (cloudy), is normal. It sounds quite ok, but there must have been a reason for the doctor ordering the test. What were they looking for? Other things to look for are white blood cells, bacteria and red blood cells in the urine. These results could come from someone who does have a urine infection, as well as from someone who is totally normal. ...Read more

Kidney limits: Glucose tends to start spilling into the urine any time the blood sugar content exceeds its ability to reclaim it as it filters the blood. This usually equates to a blood sugar of 170 mg/dl or above, that is common to those with type 1 or 2 diabetes.It can also occur at times when the blood sugar is up for other reasons. Time to see your doc. ...Read more

Glucose in urine: While small amounts of protein and ketones may appear in urine of healthy people, glucose in the urine is not normal and may reflect a problem in the kidneys or the presence of diabetes. If the amount was "trace" it may be falsely positive, but deserves rechecking the urine and a blood sugar test. ...Read more

Few issues: It is abnormal to have blood in thevurine. So this must be accounted for. Now if you are on a period or kidney stones this may account for the blood. But must know the cause. So hydrate well and go back to doctor for another sample to see if the blood is gone. If not you may have to do further testing ...Read more

Toddler had glucose in urine but her pediatrician said she does not have diabetes what can cause this?

Toddler had glucose in urine but her pediatrician said she does not have diabetes what can cause this?

Usually normal: The diagnosis of diabetes is based on the blood glucose. Urine glucose has filtered through the kidneys and is dependent on a kidney threshold (similar to a dam wall). Some children have a low threshold allowing a normal blood glucose level to filter into the urine resulting in a positive test. Also a rise in glucose can be transient coinciding with stress, which can be an infection. ...Read more

What could cause glucose in urine when not diabetic, not pregnant, no kidney problems, and normal urinalysis since that test?

It can be you: Renal glycosuria can happen whenever the kidney tubules get dinged a bit -- anything from trivial ibuprofen toxicity to deadly Wilson's disease -- producing a "Fanconi" glycosuria. And some people just don't reabsorb glucose well and often / always have glycosuria which is a non-problem. There are also lab errors. ...Read more

I have a glucose in urine reading of 294. The doctor is reluctant in getting a blood test for confirming diabetes. I am on paracetamol for about 1 mon?

Need additional test: Paracetamol or over-the-counter Acetaminophen can cause liver toxicity. The usually acute toxic dose is 4000mg in 24 hours. However, this dose may be lower to 2000mg in 24 hours for those patients with pre-existing liver abnormality. As for elevated blood glucose, one of the diagnostic criteria for type ii diabetes mellitus is random fasting blood glucose >126mg/dl on two or more occasions. ...Read more
