What Is The Difference Between Type 1 Diabetes And Renal Glycosuria
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
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
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?
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
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
