Usually sugar should not be present in urine. If yu are having sugar in yur urine then it means that either or kidney is not working properly or your blood is having excess sugars, which is getting spilled out in the urine. Do yu have history of diabetes in yur family?

Thanks for writing to us.

Sugar or glucose is not normally present in the urine. If it is present then it is indicative of diabetes. Another possibility that needs to be ruled out is renal disease. Both these can be checked with the help of some simple blood tests under the guidance of your primary physician.

I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.

Hello.Welcome.Normally if sugar is present in urine,it is normally thought,that you have diabetes mellitus.This is not true.If a person has low renal threshold or a person has a prior meal laden heavily with sweets he can have sugar in urine in the absence of diabetes mellitus.To diagnose diabetes one must get blood sugar fasting and PP done along with HBA1c.Good luck.
