In brief: 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.
