What is glycosuria or glucosuria (sugar in urine)?


Glycosuria in diabetes is a condition whereby the unabsorbed glucose of the body is excreted by way of the urine of the patient. Here, the kidneys are unable to take back the glucose into the blood stream. This state occurs in the absence of proper medication and precautions by the diabetic.

There is, thus, a reduction in the water level into the urine, leading to the patient feeling excessively thirsty.

The main reason for this condition is an increase in the level of blood sugar level. The patient is, therefore, advised to reduce the intake of foods containing simple sugar, such as sugar candies. Also, the component of carbohydrates should be reduced. Fried substances nust e substituted with fresh fruits and vegetables. Again, the patient must drink lots of water to make up for the loss in the body.

Dr Poonam Sachdeva, our in-house medical expert talks about the why what and how in diabetes.
