glycosuria

 [gli″ko-su´re-ah]
the presence of glucose in the urine; called also dextrosuria and glucosuria.
renal glycosuria glycosuria due to inability of the renal tubules to reabsorb glucose completely.

re·nal gly·co·sur·i·a

the recurring or persistent excretion of glucose in the urine, in association with blood glucose levels that remain in the normal range; results from the failure of proximal renal tubules to reabsorb glucose at a normal rate from the glomerular filtrate (low renal threshold); defect in the glucose carrier in the nephron.

renal glycosuria

n.
Recurring or persistent glycosuria in association with blood sugar levels that are in the normal range, resulting from the failure of renal tubules to reabsorb glucose at a normal rate from the glomerular filtrate.

renal glycosuria

Etymology: L, ren, kidney; Gk, glykys, sweet, ouron, urine
a familial condition characterized by lowered renal threshold to sugar. Blood glucose levels may be normal, although sugar is excreted in the urine. Also called renal diabetes mellitus.

'renal' glycosuria

 A common–1:500 AR condition in which glycosuria occurs without hyperglycemia, unrelated to diet; subjects are asymptomatic, have a normal glucose tolerance test and utilization and storage of carbohydrates, but may become transiently ketotic in stress or pregnancy
