Pregnancy tests: Blood tests are more sensitive than urine tests, especially in early pregnancy. First morning urine is usually more concentrated than urine produced later in the day. Eating and drinking can dilute the urine enough to cause a false-negative result. That is why the blood test is done for confirmation. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
NO: Diabetes is diagnosed when fasting blood sugar is over 125. Diastix detect sugar in the urine which occurs only when the blood sugar is over 180, so it would miss a lot of cases.

I have 500+ on the Azo urine test strip, negative for the nitrite.Have had a low fever ranging from 99.0-100.3 for the last 2 weeks. What could it be?

No symptoms then don't take the test just for "fun." You may end up getting confused and wasting a lot of time. ...Read more

Good luck, and consider becoming drug-free. ...Read more
