Why Does Glycosuria Occur In Nephritic Syndrome
See below: Nephritic syndrome is the set of findings due to inflammation, non-infectious inflammation, of the kidney. It is usually contrasted with nephrotic syndrome in which protein loss is the main defect.

Glomerulonephritis: Nephrotic Syndrome means excessive amount of protein in the urine (more than 2.5 gm daily) causing swelling of the legs, hands, and/or face with high Cholesterol levels) with or without abnormal kidney function. Nephritic syndrome means abnormal kidney function plus blood and protein (either in the nephrotic range or less) in the urine associated with high blood pressure. Nephritic needs urgent Rx ...Read more
Different physiology: The blood vessels in the glomeruli are damaged by inflammation in the nephritic syndrome sufficient for at least a few of them to bleed. They merely leak protein in the nephrotic syndrome, in which obvious inflammation in the classic sense is not visible but protein-retaining molecules in the gbm are lost. Famously, the membranoproliferative glomerulonephritis family produces both syndromes. ...Read more
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
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
Renal Overload: Glycosuria (or glucose in the urine) is caused by the kidneys(proximal renal tubules) being unable to reabsorb all the filtered glucose. Diabetes due to either Insulin resistance or lack of Insulin results in underutilization of glucose by your cells and hyperglycemia. Glycosuria usually occurs when blood glucose level exceeds 180 mg/dl. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Insulin if Diabetic: Glysosuria means glucose or sugar in the urine. Most common cause is diabetes. Primary diabetes can probably not be prevented and is due to insufficient or no Insulin production by the pancreas or production of Insulin antibodies. Secondary diabetes is most commonly caused by obesity, so avoid getting overweight. Glcosuria can occur normally in pregancy. Control hyerthyroidism and avoid xs alcohol. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
