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. This should be checked out soon, especially if you are experiencing excessive thirst or frequent urinination. ...Read more

Non-specific finding: Glucosuria typically occurs when the blood glucose level exceeds the kidney's ability to reabsorb it. In non-diabetics that is around 180mg/dl. The only way to diagnose diabetes is to have a hemoglobin a1c >6.5%, a fasting serum glucose >126mg/dl or a random serum glucose >200mg/dl. Glucosuria can easily be mis-measured so diabetes is not diagnosed that way. Talk to your dr. About your concern. ...Read more
