Glycosuria: Definition, Causes, Pregnancy



Glycosuria is a condition in which glucose is present in urine and this amount of glucose will reduce Fehling's solution.

What are the causes of Glucosuria? (Expert Homeopathy: Dr. Anutosh Chakraborty)

Heavy intake of carbohydrates (Alimentary glycosuria)

Strong emotion or excitement, adrenalin injection (Nervous glycosuria)

Injury to the floor of the 4th ventricle of the brain (Piqure glycosuria)

Diabetes mellitus or pancreatic diabetes (Endocrine glycosuria)

Hyperthyroidism (Endocrine glycosuria)

Increased secretion of adrenalin due to sympathetic stimulation, excitement, etc. (Endocrine glycosuria)

Acromegaly due to hyper-secretion of Anterior Pituitary (Endocrine glycosuria)

Renal glycosuria

Phloridzin glycosuria


Acute infective processes

After general anesthesia

In pregnancy

Head injury

Myocardial infarction

Subarachnoid hemorrhage

Increased intracranial tension


An individual can go for expanded periods without encountering any side effects of glycosuria. A pee test can uncover that an individual has glycosuria before an individual acknowledges they have it. By and large, this is a warning for beforehand undiscovered diabetes.
  • Specialists measure how much glucose is in the pee by testing a urine test
  • Ravenous appetite
  • Too much thirst, and may be dehydration
  • Sudden micturition
  • Frequent micturition
  • Bedwet
  • An individual with diabetes might encounter extra symptoms
  • Fatiguability
  • Disturbed vision
  • Unexplained weight reduction
  • Obscuring skin close to armpits, neck, or different regions where the skin will in general overlay
  • Gestational diabetes might introduce in basically the same manner as type 2 diabetes. In any case, it is much of the time asymptomatic and distinguished through routine screening during pregnancy.

An individual ought to converse with their physician in the event that they experience uncommon side effects.


On the off chance that an individual's glycosuria is because of a basic condition, for example, diabetes, they ought to work with their primary care physician to foster a treatment plan.

Changing the eating routine to incorporate all the more new vegetables and organic products, entire grains, and lean proteins
doing normal activity
taking oral or injectable meds for type 2 diabetes
infusing insulin day to day for all individuals with type 1 diabetes and certain individuals with type 2 diabetes
following glucose levels to figure out how food, treatments, and action influence them
When an individual has managed their glucose levels, glycosuria ought to never again happen.

Renal glycosuria

This is otherwise called harmless glycosuria, familial renal glycosuria, essential renal glycosuria and nondiabetic glycosuria.

Renal glycosuria is an uncommon acquired problem bringing about glucose discharge in the pee in spite of typical blood glucose focuses. Renal glycosuria is generally usually because of changes in the SLC5A2 quality coding for the glucose carrier SGLT2 in the proximal tubule.

The renal glycosuria happens in guys and females. Renal glycosuria is analyzed in light of lab tests that affirm the presence of glucose in the pee in relationship with typical or low blood glucose levels. It is normally asymptomatic.

In most impacted people, no treatment is required. Notwithstanding, a few people with renal glycosuria might foster diabetes mellitus.

Different cause for renal glycosuria

A few optional reasons for renal glycosuria are:

Sodium-glucose co-carrier 2 (SGLT2) medications can prompt a portion subordinate glycosuria.
Oculo-cerebro-renal dystrophy (Lowe's disorder).
Wilson's illness.
Interstitial nephritis.
Innate tyrosinaemia.
Weighty metal harming, like lead, mercury or after utilization of obsolete antibiotic medication.
Gastrointestinal glucose-galactose malabsorption (where the damaged sodium-subordinate glucose co-carrier protein is additionally present in the renal tubules)

Glycosuria in pregnancy (Expert Homeopathy: Dr. Anutosh Chakraborty)

Selective screening of diabetes and random blood glucose for pregnant women is unnecessary and ineffective due to its low sensitivity. False-positive tests outnumber true positives 11:1. The 50-gram oral glucose challenge is a better test. Diabetes test after the blood test is useless. About 50% of pregnant women find diabetes at some point; this is thought to be due to an increased glomerular filtration rate. The renal threshold of glucose varies greatly, and although blood sugar is normal, it may still result in a positive diabetes test result. Daily high intake of ascorbic acid may show false-positive results.

It is recovered automatically after childbirth.

There is no evidence that testing for gestational diabetes before 28 weeks (as a urine test may suggest) changes pregnancy outcomes. Due to low sensitivity and low positive predictive value, screening for gestational diabetes by diabetes is not effective. False-positive tests are 11:1 more than true positive tests, leading to unnecessary further tests. Based on available information, it seems safe to forgo routine urine glucose testing at each prenatal check-up. Regardless of the value of the 50-gram glucose challenge test followed by the oral glucose tolerance test (OGTT) in screening for gestational diabetes is controversial, the recommendation is still valid.
