What causes renal glycosuria?
Urine glucose less relevant now
The practice of urine glucose has been historically performed for many years in the past. However now it has little value, if any.
So you should go by your blood glucose levels only. If this blood sample was taken in the fasting state then this level is close to diabetes. It is called Pre diabetes.
Sorry to learn about your bothersome symptoms. When I see someone like you in my practice, I typically order the following blood tests in addition to a detailed physical examination:
CBC (Complete Blood Count, also known as Hemogram; includes Hemoglobin, WBC and Platelet counts)
Electrolytes (Sodium and Potassium in particular)
HbA1c (Glycosylated Hemoglobin = your last 3 months' glucose average). Also known by other names such as GlycoHemoglobin or Glycated Hemoglobin or A1c
Liver function tests (SGOT , SGPT, Albumin, Bilirubin, Alkaline Phosphatase)
Kidney function tests (BUN, Creatinine)
TSH (checks your thyroid)
25 hydroxy Vitamin D levels (ideal range 40 to 60 ng/ml = 100 to 150 nmol/liter)
None of these tests require any fasting and can be done at any time of the day
Yes. It means that your blood glucose sample is considered a non-fasting ie random one. The cut off for diabetes on a random sample is 200. So on this basis you do not have it. However, to be more confident in saying so. the HbA1c test is helpful.
