What Side Effects Are Associated With Glycosuria
Depends: The symptoms associated with glycosuria, where urine contains glucose, will vary depending on the cause. If associated with a high blood sugar (diabetes), such symptoms as urinary frequency and thirst are quite common. If associated with a normal blood glucose (renal glycosuria), there are usually no associated symptoms or adverse 'side' effects. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Not directly: Glycosuria or sugar in the urine does not have any direct affect on body functions. However, there should not be any sugar in the urine unless there is loss of kidney function and/or high levels of sugar in blood (e.g. Due to diabetes). Excessively high blood sugar can be very serious, leading to neurological deterioration, nausea, vomiting, abdominal pain and even stupor or coma. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Glycosuria : Means presence of sugar in the urine after a diet rich in abnormal amount of glucose or starches, and only then. Normally there is never sugar in urine. In diabetes, if blood sugars are high (>then 190mg%) the urine will have sugar present. So, an overwhelming amount of sugar that the Insulin could not push into the cells will be presented to the kidney and some will be spilled in the urine. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Abnormal urine study: Glycosuria is presence of glucose (sugar) in urine.Commonly found in uncontrolled diabetes, there are other rarer causes(eg. Type 2 renal tubular acidosis).Albuminuria is presence of protein in urine, and has many causes including diabetes.Because protein in the urine can cause or be a marker for kidney damage, it is very important for people with either of these to keep in close contact w doctor. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Probably not: Too large an amount of a chromium supplement can have a variety of ill effects, but increasing sugar in the urine is not likely one of them. There are some studies that suggest chromium may help lower blood sugar, which would lower the chances of blood sugar showing up in the urine (gliycosuria). Of note, not all studies have shown benefit from chromium. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
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
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
