How are renal glycosuria and diabetes different?

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.
Whole body vs part. Renal glycosuria only refers to spilling excess sugar from the kidneys into the urine, while diabetes mellitus could be a number of subtypes, and refers to either a partial or total lack of Insulin production, and resistance by the cells of the body to the insulin. There are other parts as well, but this is the main explanation.

What is the difference between type 1 diabetes and renal glycosuria?

Sugar in urine. Glycosuria is the term used to describe excess sugar spilling into your urine. If your blood is full of sugar, a lot of it will spill into your urine. Water goes with it leading to excessive urination and thirst. This occurs in both uncontrolled type 1 or type 2 diabetes. Read more...

Disease vs function. Your kidneys are designed to reclaim all the sugar in all blood filtered through & will do so if the glucose level stays below ~170. At higher levels, whatever the cause, some is lost in the urine which produces renal glycosuria. T1DM is a condition where your body doesn't produce the insulin needed to carry glucose into the cells.Over time the blood sugar rises to high levels producing symptoms. Read more...

What is the difference between Renal Glycosuria and Diabetes Mellitus? How to explain relationship between intraversical volume and pressure? Thanks

Relationship. Renal glycosuria is a condition in which sugar is excreted in the urine due to a kidney conditon. Diabetes mellitus is due to insufficient insulin production in the pancras. Intravesical volume increases pressure in the bladder. Read more...

What is renal glycosuria?

Sugar in urine. Present in diabetes mellitus or some kidney conditions where sugar leaks through the kidneys. Blood sugar should be checked if glycosuria is found. Read more...
Glucose in the urine. Usually glycosuria occurs in patients with high blood sugar, usually they are diabetic. Rare patients fail to resorb filtered glucose in the kidney, passing glucose in the urine. This can be benign, it should be watched closely for signs of other renal dysfunction. Read more...

What are the symptoms of 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.

What is the main difference between benign and renal glycosuria?

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...

What is the difference between benign glycosuria and renal glycosuria?

No difference. Renal glycosuria represents the excretion of detectable amounts of glucose in the urine at normal blood glucose concentrations (as opposed to diabetes) and is a benign condition when isolated, unassociated with any symptoms or long-term problems, and does not require any treatment.

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.

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...
