Thanks for query,
There might be chances of excreating sugar in your urine.
Sugar can be excreated in urine in diabetes & in non diabetic stage too if your blood sugar shows normal value.
Just check your urine & blood sugar if you see presence of it in any one or both you should consult your doctor.
If you are losing weight then the chances of diabetes is increasing.

There have been discussions about ants getting attracted to urine of a diabetic person.And may be in ancient time it was used to diagnose diabetes.But most definitive way of testing this is getting blood sugar eves tested. So getting your sugar levels checked would be easy and effective way to confirm this.

Hope this answers your question.
