Brief Answer:
I agree with your doctor, get urine test done after 15 days

Detailed Answer:
Hello
Thanks for asking the query

I have gone through the reports. It shows that the initially there was infection (raised CRP) which has settled now.

I won't get worried as the blood sugar is normal and otherwise the report of urine is also normal(except sugar).

Presence of sugar in urine with normal blood sugar is called renal glycoruria. In most of the cases it is benign and does not need any treatment. This can be seen in fever and other infection.

I would request you to get the test repeated after 15 days. If the report shows sugar again other tests like blood gas analysis, urine for electrolytes may be needed to rule out other uncommon causes like renal tubular disorder.

I hope this helps.
Please let me know if you have any more query.

Brief Answer:
Chance of having renal tubular disorder is remote

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for follow up

Renal tubular disorder is a very rare condition. Dont get worried as the chance of having this disease is very less. In this condition there is defect in absorption of many minerals and glucose leading to its release in urine.

I request you to get the test repeated as this renal glucosuria is transient in most of the cases and improves on its own.
