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.

glycosuria

/gly·cos·uria/ (su´re-ah) the presence of glucose in the urine.
renal glycosuria  that due to inherited inability of the renal tubules to reabsorb glucose completely.

glycosuria

(glī′kə-so͝or′ē-ə, -sho͝or′-)
n.
Excess sugar in the urine, often associated with diabetes mellitus.

gly′co·su′ric adj.

glycosuria

[glī′kōsoo͡r′ē·ə]
Etymology: Gk, glykys + ouron, urine
abnormal presence of a sugar, especially glucose, in the urine. Glycosuria can result from the ingestion of large amounts of carbohydrate, or it may be caused by endocrine or renal disorders. It is a finding most routinely associated with diabetes mellitus. glycosuric, adj.

glycosuria

Glucosuria The spillage of excess glucose into the urine, an event common in uncontrolled DM and in 'renal' glycosuria. See Renal glyosuria.

glycosuria

Sugar in the urine. This is one of the cardinal signs of DIABETES.

glycosuria

the condition where glucose is excreted in the urine because the blood sugar level exceeds the normal (hyperglycaemia). Glycosuria is one of the symptoms of DIABETES.

glycosuria

; glucosuria urinary excretion of sugars
  • alimentary glycosuria transitory presence of glucose in urine following ingestion of a large amount of sugar or starch

  • renal glycosuria recurrent or persistent excretion of glucose in urine, in association with raised blood glucose levels; characteristic of uncontrolled diabetes mellitus

gly·co·sur·i·a

(glī'kō-syūr'ē-ă)
Urinary excretion of carbohydrates.
[glyco- + G. ouron, urine]

glycosuria (gli´kōsŏŏr´ēə),

n the presence of sugar in the urine. It most commonly results from diabetes mellitus but may occur from a lowered renal threshold (renal glycosuria) in pregnancy, inorganic renal disease, and in patients taking adrenocorticosteroids.
