What Is The Difference Between Diabetes And Glycosuria
Disease vs. symptom: Diabetes is a metabolic disease caused by not producing enough Insulin or developing Insulin resistance. Glycosuria means the presence of glucose in the urine, which occurs either when the glucose levels in the blood are too high (as in diabetes) or when glucose transport mechanism in kidney tubules is congenitally defective(rare condition). ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Diabetes is a disease of increased blood glucose levels. Glucose is a type of sugar that comes from the intake of food. Insulin is a type of hormone that removes the glucose from the blood and moves it into the cells to provide them with energy. There are two different types of diabetes: type 1 and type 2. Type 1 diabetes is when the body does not make any insulin. Therefore, glucose stays inside the blood and does not move into the cells. Type 2 diabetes, which is commonly associated with obesity, is when the body is either resistant to the effects of insulin or when the body does not produce enough insulin. Increased levels of glucose in the body causes severe damage to the ...Read more
What is the difference between Renal Glycosuria and Diabetes Mellitus?
How to explain relationship between intraversical volume and pressure? Thanks
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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer
High blood sugar cau: Ordinarily urine has no sugar as kidneys are capable of reabsorping all the filtered glucose.If blood sugar is higher than normal like in diabetes it can not reabsorp all the filtered glucose and sugar spills in the urine rarely glycosurea can be caused by problem in glucose reabsorption and it is called renal glycosurea. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Too much glucose: Diabetics have a problem getting the glucose from their blood into their tissues. Their lack of Insulin or Insulin resistance causes the glucose that is in the blood stream to keep building up. When the blood goes through the kidney filter if there is a lot of glucose it is 'dumped' with other waste products into the urine glycouria results. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
What is the likelihood that glycosuria would occur in the absence of diabetes? Will glycosuria cause kidney damage? Would a UTI cause glycosuria?
A small minority: of people will have slight glycosuria, either normally or due to a genetic kidney disorder. It doesn't generally cause damage to the kidney; elevated glucose, however, will damage the kidney and many other organs. Discuss w/your doctor. Glycosuria can increase potential for uti, not the other way around unless your blood sugar increases. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Kidney capacity: Glucose in the urine occurs when the blood glucose is high and crosses the threshold of kidney capacity to absorb glucose, then glucose leaks in theurine.Normal kidney threshold is about 180 mg/dl. If you have diabetes and there is no glucose in the urine, it suggest that blood glucose is probably less than 180 mg /dl.Again the kidney theshold varies depending on its function. ...Read more
