What Is The Difference Between Type 1 Diabetes And Renal Glycosuria
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

They are the same: I think that you want the difference between the glycosuria of diabetes mellitus (spilling glucose due to hyperglycemia) and spilling glucose due to the inabilitiy of the kidney to completely reabsorb filtered glucose in someone with euglycemia. The first is high glucose overpowering the reabsorbtion, the second is from weak reabsorbtion. The second is probably harmless, the first is a bad disease. ...Read more
Myself 48 years ,my son 20yrs , daughter 11years are having Renal glycosuria since birth , Myself had taken no treatment since 1984 ,any treatment now?
No Rx needed, but I: recommend period screening for diabetes with HgbA1c or 2H PP blood glucose, to ensure that the ongoing glycosuria is not a reflection of diabetes, which would present the same way. Renal glycosuria is influenced by blood sugar levels, so focus on a diet with foods with a low glycemic index instead of simple sugars like pop and juice and stay well hydrated to minimize risk of kidney stones. ...Read more
There are none: Some people's kidneys, by birth or sometimes by medication / toxin effect, simply waste glucose despite the blood sugar being normal. Some glucose is always filtered in the glomeruli, and a few folks have tubules that aren't good at reabsorbing it. When it's genetic, it's perfectly compatible with a lifetime of excellent health. ...Read more
Have GTT test. Blood glucose normal. O hour and 1 hour urine glucose negative but 2 hour urine glucose is trace. False positive or renal glycosuria?
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
Insulin differences: In type 1 diabetes, your immune system — which normally fights harmful bacteria or viruses — attacks and destroys your insulin-producing cells in the pancreas. In type 2 diabetes, your cells become resistant to the action of insulin, and your pancreas is unable to make enough Insulin to overcome this resistance. ...Read more
Type 1 vs 2 diabetes: Usually overweight patients have type 2, and underweight patients have type 1 (especially if they are actively losing weight, as children & teens with type 1 do). But you can also prove this with a few lab tests. Ask your doctor to run a C-peptide test. This measures how much Insulin your pancreas makes, and is not skewed by Insulin shots. A very low level (sometimes zero) indicates type 1. ...Read more
See below: "diabetes" refers to increased thirst and urination. Two major types are "diabetes insipitus" and "diabetes mellitus." diabetes mellitus, known as "sugar" diabetes, comes in two types, type 1 (no Insulin produced) and type 2 (old term was "adult onset"). Here are some reference sites: http://j.Mp/stwnmz and http://j.Mp/stwhlt (diabetes insipidus);. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
I am a 16 year old diabetic and I was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes one year ago. Do you think they will find and give me a cure in my lifetime?
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
DM team instruction: Every kid i pick up with dm1 is sent to a center with certified diabetes educators and physicians to begin the families orientation to this life changing event. My closest centers are fort worth, dallas, temple or austin but one has a local clinic for regular followup visits. Small hospital facilities & regular physicians often don't have the time or current info to do a well rounded orientation. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Is protein intake any different if you have type 1 diabetes?I s it fine if I eat 170g protein (I'm 17 y/o and my weight is 168lbs and height is 6.1)
You are doing fine: and your protein intake is suitable, in diabetes in general, it is rather the carbohydrates and fats that you need to watch diligently. A dietician, if you have access to one, can help you a lot and coach you right through your diet for better control of your weight, hence your diabetes, which I believe your are taking good care of, best wishes ...Read more
