John (omearaj) · 15 Sep 2003glucose in the urine doesn't necessarily mean DM - it's just one of the indicators. You'd really need a glucose tolerance test to tell for sure. Protein in the urine is often an indicator of abnormal kidney function (except after vigorous excercise). I only asked you that as another possibilty since glucose & protein present would indicate something wrong.
DM of some form is more likely since high blood glucose levels exceed the filtration capacity of the kidneys and some spills over into the urine- do you get very thirsty all the time? Do you crave sugary foods a lot? Do you get much excercise? Is there a lot of saturated fat and processed carbohydrates in your diet?
Oh yeah, and whats with the "......john" business?
Anonymous · 13 Sep 2003No ,I was not tested for proteinurea,what would it show?What would it mean?Does having glucose in ones urine mean DM or not?thanks.

John (omearaj) · 10 Sep 2003Of course. I really think that if your glycosuria test showed abnormally high levels,(and given your recurrant UTIs this obviously wasn't a once off fluke)you should have a glucose tolerance test - even if only to rule out D.M., it being the most likely cause.
If not D.M. you can then progress to kidney function tests etc.
As a matter of interest, were you tested for proteinurea at the same time?
Anonymous · 07 Sep 2003Didn't think so anyway I did not have a Glucose Tolerance test but my blood was checked for Glycosuria.The discovery of glucose in my urine was made when I had 3 UTIs one after another.Been a Pharmacist you know what a UTI is?
John (omearaj) · 05 Sep 2003Nope, Pharmacist.

John (omearaj) · 03 Sep 2003What do you mean by not in a blood test?? I assume you mean a glucose tolerance test didn't show any abnormal Insulin function??
Is the glucose in your urine constantly there, or only on specic occasions?? Please specify.
HOw did you discover the glucose in your urine and what prompted you to check?
As regards your painful periods, consulting you docter about a combined oral contraceptive might help. you should also get tested for any extra-uterine placental tissue.
