Does clinistix fail to show the presence of glucose if the test strip has been dipped in toilet?

1 doctor agrees

In brief: Dilution Effect

Generally, urine glucose testing strips need to be dipped into urine only.
If dipping into toilet water there will be a significant dilutional effect and make the reading inaccurate.
