In brief: Kidney damage

The glomeruli (tiny filters in the kidney) becoming damaged in nephrotic syndrome primarily permit the kidney to leak protein, however damage also can permit leakage of glucose/sugar and hence glycosuria.

Should add that renal tubules that drain the glomeruli then fail to reabsorb the glucose completely in subjects with nephrotic syndrome who have glycosuria

In brief: Should not

It will occur only if you have diabetes with high blood sugar.
