Sugar in the blood.
In a diabetes test result if it shows sugar present in the blood and no sugar present in the urine is this a bad sign. IF there is sugar in the blood should it be also present in the urine. Kindly clarify. Thanks

Is insulin bad for health?
People with diabetes who take insulin, is it bad for them? or is the insulin just needed to manage blood sugar? And the blood sugar (if not managed well) is the real problem.
Thanks for writing to HCM
You didn’t mentioned what sugar level you have. It matters in management.
If it is not too high, you can control it by diet control and exercise.
If it is not controlled, then oral hypoglycemic agents are given.
If it is still uncontrolled or very high then insulin injection is given.
Hi and thanks for posting on HCM.
By sugar I suppose you mean diabetes. This manifests as excessive thirst and drinking, excessive urination and weight loss. These are the principal signs.
Do fasting blood sugar if you are concerned or have the above symptoms.
Hope this answers your query. I wish you well.
