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.

Such points as gallstones (fundus, cholelithiasis), glycosuria, lactose intolerance, gluten intolerance, renal failure (elevated BUN), prostate (hypertrophy), dysbiosis (colon), SIBO (small intestine bacterial overgrowth), stomach HCI (parietal cells), thyroxin, TSH, cortisol, GABA (epilepsy), dopamine, and many others.
In our patients, proteinuria was associated with increased TB and DB serum levels, with increased risk of liver, kidney, and lung complications, and other alterations in urinalysis including bilirubinuria, urobilinuria, ketonuria, and glycosuria. Concurrent hematuria was found in 93 of 227 patients with proteinuria (40.96%) but hematuria was not related to clinical complications.

This presence of glucose in the urine is called glycosuria. It is often associated with endocrine disorders such as diabetes, kidney impairment, central nervous system damage, and pancreatic disease.

Proteinuria, glycosuria, thrombocytopenia (92 x [10.sup.9] thrombocytes/L), liver dysfunction (elevated aspartate aminotransferase [95 U/L] and alanine aminotransferase [93 U/L]), and hyponatremia (sodium 127 mmol/L) were observed, and levels of serum procalcitonin (1.9 ng/ mL) and C-reactive protein (198 mg/L) were elevated.
The urinary variables measured were diuresis, glycosuria (IL 300 plus, Clinical Chemistry Analyzer, Holliston, MA, USA), albuminuria (Albumin Rat ELISA Kit, Abcam, Cambridge, MA, USA), and the urinary excretion of N-acetyl [beta]-D-glucosaminidase (NAG).
Thus, diabetes can interfere with bone tissue causing impaired bone quality through different mechanisms [23], including glycosuria which may result in hypercalciuria and loss of bone mass; accumulation of the advanced glycosylation end products (AGEs) in the collagen fibers with alteration of the structure and of the strength of the bone; low levels of insulin like growth factors-I (IGF-I) considered as a bone anabolic factor; alteration in plasma insulin levels; impaired kidney function; bone microangiopathy with reduction of vascular flow and increased bone fragility and chronic inflammation with increase of cytokines that can accelerate the bone remodeling and loss of BMD.
