Yes, it is to a diagnostic level but you cannot know the precise severity of the glucose levels. It is called as semiquantitative test not full.

Dentist Dr. Akash Prasad's  Response
Glucose Tolerance test is gold standard for diagnosis of Diabetes. Urine Glucose analysis cannot be alone considered for diagnosis..

Hi Chitrangada,

Mere Urine sugar test is not enough for the diagnosis of diabetes. Fasting and post meal blood sugars, along with Hba1c test should give a clue to diagnosis.

My 3 year old son has a blood glucose of 155. We were at a birthday party where he had soda, cake, ice cream, etc... It seems he has been urinating more often and a lot today. We tested him with a new lancet on my husbands glucometer. Do I need to be concerned with a family history of diabetes?

Hi, I am 56, average weight (57kg), 169cm tall. Lately I had several occasions where after drinking green tea or water I develop belching and severe dull pain in my left kidney area, sometimes lasting for 2 days. Often it is when I twist my torso or do anything just after drinking. It is not indigestion - it is usually on empty stomach. Could it be something with my kidneys or pancreas? I am taking pancreatin for digestive problems. I also have sliding hernia and a host of other problems, but this is a new one.
