Hello.

Thanks for posting the query.

Urine and toothbrush attracting the ants is not the basis of diagnosing Diabetes Mellitus.

If biochemical tests like blood sugar levels and H1bAc (Glycated Hemoglobin) levels including that of urine glucose levels are normal, you need not to worry at all.

I hope I have answered your query. Please accept my answer in you have follow up queries.

Regards.

Hi,
Thanks for reverting.
There is no scientific theory to explain the attraction of ants to your urine and your tooth brush.
Perhaps the ingestion of certain food products may be responsible for it. You need to check that.
