Usually sugar should not be present in urine. If yu are having sugar in yur urine then it means that either or kidney is not working properly or your blood is having excess sugars, which is getting spilled out in the urine. Do yu have history of diabetes in yur family?

Orthopaedic Surgeon Dr. Praveen Tayal's  Response

Thanks for writing to us.

Sugar or glucose is not normally present in the urine. If it is present then it is indicative of diabetes. Another possibility that needs to be ruled out is renal disease. Both these can be checked with the help of some simple blood tests under the guidance of your primary physician.

I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.

Hello.Welcome.Normally if sugar is present in urine,it is normally thought,that you have diabetes mellitus.This is not true.If a person has low renal threshold or a person has a prior meal laden heavily with sweets he can have sugar in urine in the absence of diabetes mellitus.To diagnose diabetes one must get blood sugar fasting and PP done along with HBA1c.Good luck.

Hullo Doctor - My mother s TLC count is 26000. She has diverticulitis and one or two perforated but sealed naturally. Her urine and blood cultures are sterile. Amikacin and Doripenem is being administered for the past 8 days yet her TLC count has been increasing. Also Enoxapain is being given as she suffered from a minor stroke. She is on liquid and semi solid diet though she can consume little. However improvement there as she was not being able to drink more than a sip of water 3 days ago - now she has half a bowl of soup and few sips of juice throughout the day. Fever sometimes reaches 100 but not beyond. Passes stool after taking Movicol at night. My question- are we on the right track? Why is the TLC count going up? What more can be done?
