What do glycosuria and ketone bodies in the urine indicate?

Together is serious: Glycosuria means sugar in the urine. It happens when the sugar level in the blood is high >180 mg/dl. It is reported in crosses (+, ++, +++, ++++) the higher the crosses the worst the sugar in blood. Ketones appear in urine and blood when the liver is burning fat like in the state of fasting, or when diabetes is complicated with ketoacidosis ( is a serious complication of type i diabetes). ...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

Went to doctor for flu and she tested my urine and said i has sugar in my urine and called it glucosuria? Scared i might have a precursor for diabetes

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

What causes sugar in urine?

What causes sugar in urine?

Usually diabetes.: One of the functions of the kidney is to absorb all sugars into the bloodstream & prevent their excretion in the urine. Diabetes, or conditions where blood sugar is very high, can overwhelm the kidney's ability to reabsorb glucose, causing it to spill out into the urine, a condition called glycosuria. Though diabetes is the most common cause, rare defects in kidney function can cause this as well. ...Read more
