Hi well come to Hcm.
It could be but could be because of other inborn error of metabolism like,fructosuria
galactosuria, lactosuria etc. Where other sugars like fructose, lactose, galactose are
present in urine. But at present without botheribng much you may get done urine
for sugar test and its very easy. If positive should think of juvenile Diabetes. Donot
come to conclusion on your own better consult your Doctor. Thanks
