Why Test your Urine For Glucose?

The glucose urine test measures the amount of sugar (glucose) in a urine sample. The presence of glucose in the urine is called glycosuria or glucosuria. The main purpose of this Glucose Urine Test is use to track the existence and level of Diabetes.

Glucose is not usually found in urine. If it is, further testing is needed.

Normal glucose range in urine: 0 – 0.8 mmol/l (0 – 15 mg/dL)

Greater than normal levels of glucose may occur with:

Diabetes, although blood glucose tests are needed to diagnose diabetes. Small increases in urine glucose levels after a large meal are not always a cause for concern.

A rare condition in which glucose is released from the kidneys into the urine, even when blood glucose levels are normal (renal glycosuria)

Pregnancy — up to half of women will have glucose in their urine at some point during pregnancy. Glucose in the urine may mean that a woman has gestational diabetes.

Glucose will only show up in the urine once it has reached high levels in the blood.

Diabetes is a lifelong (chronic) disease in which there are high levels of sugar in the blood.

There are three major types of diabetes. The causes and risk factors are different for each type:

Type 1 diabetes can occur at any age, but it is most often diagnosed in children, teens, or young adults. In this disease, the body makes little or no insulin. Daily injections of insulin are needed. The exact cause is unknown.

Type 2 diabetes makes up most of diabetes cases. It most often occurs in adulthood, but teens and young adults are now being diagnosed with it because of high obesity rates. Many people with type 2 diabetes do not know they have it.

Gestational diabetes is high blood sugar that develops at any time during pregnancy in a woman who does not have diabetes.

There is no cure for diabetes. Treatment involves medicines, diet, and exercise to control blood sugar and prevent symptoms and problems.

Why Test your Urine For Protein?

This test is most often performed to detect the kidney disease and you will need to cousult doctor immediately when you discovered large amount of protein shown in the test result.

Normally, protein is not found in urine when a routine dipstick test is performed. However, tiny amounts of protein can be detected using special methods. This is because the kidney is supposed to keep large substances like protein in the blood. Even if small amounts of protein do get through, the body normally reabsorbs them.

Some proteins will appear in the urine if the levels of protein in blood become high, even when the kidney is working properly.

If the kidney is diseased, protein will appear in the urine even if blood protein levels are normal.

Small increases in urine protein levels are usually not a cause for concern.

However, larger amounts of protein in the urine may be due to:

Amyloidosis
Bladder tumor
Congestive heart failure
Dehydration
Diabetic nephropathy
Glomerulonephritis
Goodpasture syndrome
Heavy metal poisoning
Kidney-damaging drugs (nephrotoxic drugs)
Polycystic kidney disease
Preeclampsia
Systemic lupus erythematosus
Urinary tract infection

How do you test your urine for Glucose and Protein?

Dip the test end of the strip into fresh urine.
Remove the strip from the urine and wait 15 seconds.
Compare the color on the strip with the color chart on the bottle.

The urine Protein test and Glucose will tell you whether you have no glucose and Protein present or if you have trace, small, moderate, or large Protein and Glucose present.

If your urine has moderate or large Protein / Glucose present, call your doctor or nurse right away.

Follow the directions for testing exactly and time the test accurately.
Read the directions before doing the test.
Protect the test strips from damage that might change the results.
Do not touch the test area of the strip or allow it to touch the table.
Protect the test strips from moisture, direct sunlight and heat.
Keep the test strips in a cool, dry place but do not store in the refrigerator.
Do not remove desiccant (white packet in bottle).
Replace the bottle cap promptly and tightly.
Check the expiration date on your test strips.
Keep lid close tightly to keep long
Do not use if the date has passed.
Do not use test strips that have discolored.

Healthy Breakfast Food

Nasi Lemak, chocolate milk and chocolate drinks. mihun, curry mee, roti canai, butter and bread, cereal bar, yogurt and more are some of our Malaysia famous morning breakfast. Are you one of them? Chances are you’re not alone and everyone is eating this way everyday.

We have eliminate drinking chocolate and milk drinks in our morning breakfast ever since we know it’s not good for our health.

Let’s view it’s effect on our health.

Nasi Lemak – coconut rice is good for health, but white rice is sugar! Eating too much sugar will lower our immune system help fight invaders in our body, when our body need to fight these bacteria and viruses everyday in our system.

Not 100% cows milk straight from the farm – dairy causes inflammation in our system thus leading to all sort of symptoms you may come across such as phlegm, sore throat, cough, fever and etc. (We human do not need cow’s milk to get our calcium, leafy green has much more calcium if compare to milk). Cow’s milk is to feed calf, their milk is not suitable for human consumption, leading to extra fats in human body. And avoid all low fat because low fat is extremely hazardous to our body because of it’s ingredients content.

Not 100% cocoa chocolate drink direct from cocoa beans – not 100% cocoa with added preservative and flavourings, colourings

Mihun – too much salt, msg, white rice mihun not good full of sugar

Curry mee – wheat flour and yellow noodle bad for health, with added preservatives, flavourings and etc roti canai – too much oil, fried, causes build up toxic in our body

Butter – originally butter is not yellow in colour, it’s white. Consist of colourings, preservatives and etc

Yogurt – preservatives, sugar, flavouring and etc

Cereal bar – sugar, preservatives, flavouring and etc

Bread – wheat flour consist of preservatives, colouring, bleach and etc

What’s left for human to consume in our breakfast?

Locally grown fruits
Seeds
Nuts
Beans
Different colour of vegetables (organic)
Plain water
Coconut milk – 100% squeeze from coconut shred (build up immune system) & coconut water (heal inflammations eg: sore throat and etc)
Sweet potatoes, yams and so on
Eggs (organic)

Fish, Chicken, Cow, Goat Meat – from own farm without chemical injections

Most important we have to know what’s good for our whole body ecosystem is that what we consume must be from it’s original form.

That way, we can prevent build of toxicity in our body in the form of inflammation such as fever, flu, sore throat, cough, cancer and many more.

And if you can’t skip outside food because you’re on the go all the time, get a pack of urine strip and test, our test will let you know if your body is in bad shape and it’s time for you to take charge and change your eating and lifestyle.

Prolong eating unhealthy food will lead to weight gain, diabetic, high blood pressure, heart attack, cancer and many more

It depends how your immune system heal your body, if successfully heal then you’re back as normal, if it cannot perform its’ function because your immune too low, cancer and other major diseases will outbreak. Without high immune system too, cells will be destroy thus causes rapid in aging

How to lower your blood pressure

People often say food and lifestyle increase our blood pressure. It’s true, the food we eat must comes from natural form such as eating from it’s raw form, more mix of colourful organic leafy green, fruits, nuts, seeds and avoid commercial food such as those packed inside boxes, plastics and canned food. Preservatives, table salt, colourings, flavourings will indeed increase our blood pressure. Hectic lifestyle from workplace, emotional roller coaster from bad relationships too will have the same impact to our blood pressure.

There are proven ways to lower our blood pressure naturally, it could be just few hours or few days you will be able to see the result, PROVIDED your intake of food is healthy first of all.

All these years of eating oily food, fried food and other harmful food, clogged our blood vessel. When our blood vessel become clogged, oxygen can’t flow smoothly to our whole body thus making our heart pumping harder and harder each day thus leading to high blood pressure.Not only that, lack of oxygen increases risk of cancer cell.

After you have cleanse your body by switching to raw food or lightly steam vegetables and refrain from eating outside food for a while, you can start to learn how to lower your blood pressure naturally by “Learning How to Breathe Correctly”

Majority of people DO NOT know how to breathe correctly. Normally, our breathe tend to be short when we are busy. If you notice, we only breathe really deep when we are exercising. Which is why exercising is good for health.

When you’re exercising, try deep breathing by pressing your left nose and take a deep breathe using your right nose and the other way round for few times. Then take really deep breathe into your belly and exhale slowly several times.

Do this when you’re exercising, preferable morning where there are green trees around where you stand.

By doing so, you will take in more oxygen to supply your whole systems. Within few days or weeks, you will notice your blood pressure become lower.

Try to do this to relax your whole body when you’re not too busy with your daily work. You can even sit down cross legs, close your eyes and try to focus on your breathing.

See this video for more detail.

Note: Deep breathing only during exercise, you don’t need to deep breathe everytime.

White Bread Spike Up Glucose

Those diet high in refined carbohydrates from white bread, white rice, pasta will experienced  twice the incident of Type II Diabetic compare to those who consume high fiber such as whole wheat bread and brown rice.

These refined grains food should be listed in the sugar category instead of breakfast category. The fiber and majority of minerals have been removed from it’s origin and they are no longer a “real food”, thus upon consuming these refined carbohydrates food, sharp glucose surge into bloodstream. Pancrease is then forced to pump out insulin faster to keep up.

Excess body fat also causes us to takes up more insulin from pancrease.

Over time, due to excessive demand for insulin from both eating refined grain food and increased in body fat that leads to diabetes.

Apart from these food, refined carbohydrates, white flour, sweets and fruit juices also lead to diabetes because they enter bloodstream in rapid state, it raises triglycerides, increasing risk of heart attack.

Everytime we eat such processed food, we are excluding our diet from essential nutrients for our body to function properly.

When the nutrient rich outer layer scraped off from bread from whole wheat bread to turn into white bread, the most nutritious part of the food is lost. The outer part is important as it contains traces of minerals, phytoestrogens, lignans, phytic acid, indoles, phenolic compounds and other phytochemicals as well as vitamin E in food.

Prolong eating such refined food will cause obesity, diabetes, heart disease, increased in chances of getting cancer.

Eating diet that contained sugar and refined flour will make human gain weight and also lead to earlier death.

If you want to lose weight, first and most important is to avoid processed food such as candy, snacks, baked goods, fat free has got nothing to do with it. You must cut out refined carbohydrates, including bagels, pasta and bread.

Most manufacturers remove the most valuable part of the food and add bleach, preservatives, salt, sugar and food colouring to make breads, breakfast cereals and other convenience foods. Yet many consider this food as healthy because advertisement says so.

Water pH in Aquariums

Many freshwater community fish can survive in a wide range of pH level between slightly acidic of 6.5 to slightly alkaline water 7.5. However, some special types of fish, do require special water ph enviroment. To provide them with their ideal water conditions, you must learn how to make adjustments to your fish habitat aquarium water using pH water testing strip.I’m selling one brand which is very good in testing water ph level, brand name Macherey Nagel.You can take a look in my website aileenwo.com

Before using any water in your aquarium, test it using ph strips to determine its pH and alkalinity. In most times, tap water falls within 6.5-7.5 range is a difficult one. If your tap water is hard and new fish locally with the same water ph level, the water should be fine. A buffer cannot remove calcium from the water, it only act for short time.The best way to do this is with the use of a Reverse Osmosis unit to filter the water. After you remove minerals, the use of peat or a commercial pH decreaser will be more effective at lowering pH to the desired level.

The opposite is true if your tap water is acidic, or soft. You will first need to add minerals to buffer and raise the pH. Commercial alkaline buffers should do the trick to effectively raise and control pH at the desired level.

Monitoring your aquarium water frequently will ensure better living environment for your pet fish.

Factors that may effect pH can change – even in established kept aquariums or without the use of commercial water conditioners. The addition of acids can lower your aquarium pH, and these drops are extremely harmful to your fish. Acids come from several sources: from excess carbon dioxide via respiration, from the nitrification stage of biological filtration, and from leaching tannins in driftwood, to name a few. On the other hand, substrates or gravel containing coral, limestone, or sea shells will leach carbonates into the water, which will raise the pH buffering capacity. In saltwater aquariums, this may be desirable, but in most freshwater aquariums, you generally don’t want your substrate to drastically alter water chemistry.

Unfortunately, when your aquarium is experiencing pH imbalance, there are no visible signs. Since a small change in pH means a drastic change in alkalinity or acidity, it is important to monitor aquarium pH frequently. Keep a diary to record your pH readings whenever you test. It will help you recognize patterns and find solutions when something is altering your aquarium pH. Before long, you’ll be a pro at using pH water test strip to stabilize aquarium pH.

The Secret of Extreme Longevity

Scientific research has shown there is an interesting fact of one food with the association to increasing longevity in human. Can you take a guess which food?

Many have yet discovered the benefit of eating raw, leafy green or commonly we refer to as “salad”.

Most vegetables in their raw form are rich in nutrients and all essential amino acids comparing to other food.Not only that, it’s rich in phytonutrients cancer fighting agent, thus protecting us from all sorts of threatening diseases.

Now, we can have more control of our own body if we practice eating vegetables in their raw form. Being healthy is not luck but it’s changing in lifestyle and diet.

In one of medical research on 206 human populations studies, consuming raw vegetables have shown to be the strongest protection against cancer compare to other beneficial food which claims to guard against diseases.

However, fever than 1% in every 100 humans consumes enough raw vegetables to ensure this Universal Gifted Defence System ~ raw vegetables to perform healing naturally. To ensure good health, practice by sticking a big sign on the fridge to remind ourselves “Salad IS the MAIN DISH”

Raw means vegetables eaten raw and uncooked. It’s best to purchase organic vegetables for their non-pesticides version.

Find our urine ph strip or urine dipstick to learn more about your body urine balance of asid and alkaline, if you’re getting enough raw vegetables your urine will be more alkaline. What you eat does have an effect on your urine level. Keep your urine level balance to ensure better health state.

Prolong acidity in our body will lead to CANCER. Too alkaline also effect our body function. Important note is to maintain “balance” pH Level.

How to alkalize your body?

To alkalize our body we cannot do it overnight, it takes time. There is no pills to alkalize in long term. There is a pill for a cure and if you look at the ingredients its just minerals calcium and magnesium that alkalize the body. There are other ways to do it.

Enzyme, vitamins they don’t work without minerals, you cannot lift your arms, blink your eyes and you can’t do anything without minerals working in your body. Our human body cannot functions without minerals.

That’s why its important to remineralize your body. Minerals are critically important.

The right food for Best alkalizer food
80% 20% rule
80% alkalizer food
20% acidic food

We need a little acidic food such as nuts, seeds, meat..

Then again, it’s about balance.

Do not overeat

In Japanese culture, they push away from their table when they are 80% full. That way body can digest food properly. A lot of people do that everyday. Reason is because our body cannot handle too much food and therefore creates acid by products that the body cannot break down.

Portion size is important, when we eat meat, eat a palm size of meat. We have a to do a moderation and balance in eating.

Greens, high chlorophyll food very alkalizing to our system.It’s very cleasing, very alkalize to the system, sun shine, algae, spirulina, so
green foods very important to us. The other food that’s super alkaline to our body is seaweed especially kelp.

Exercise

An athele who is pushing themself too hard on streneous exercises and training should increase their mineral levels or body system will shut down. As it’s going to create so much acidic waste, the body cannot handle it.

Sweating

A very good way to remove toxins and thus a good way to alkaline the body.

Sleeping

Going to bed at 10 pm if you can is very important because our body doesn’t release human growth hormone if one doesn’t go to bed at 10 pm.

Human growth hormone is the key to longevity.And also what happen in our body when we sleep is our body heals, and repair, build and eliminate toxics waste.

It’s a great time for you to let your body do it’s job by getting proper amount of sleeps. If you have sleeping problems, it’s just lacking in magnesium and if you take magnesium before bed, you’ll sleep like a rock!

Breathing, relaxing, reducing stress, praying, meditate, calming down, relaxing, taking time out what’s important in life, going to the park, taking life outdoors all these makes our body alkaline.

Urine PH Level Test For Gender Baby

Baby Gender Indicator

A pH urine acid level will indicate you’re having a boy while a girl is indicated in alkaline pH.

Readings of 4-6 (acidic) is girl, while 7-9 (alkaline) is boy.

The prediction method of testing your urine’s pH works as early as in your pregnancy before 9 weeks.

Test should best be done EARLY in the morning before your urine is diluted, as this will give more accurate result.

Diet & Urine pH

Diet will affect your urine pH. And we know alkaline favor boys and acidic favor girls. And here we wouldn’t know which food is alkaline and which food is acid, so we have a product Macharey Nagel PH Fix Strip for these test.

For an example, i did a test using Macharey Nagel PH Test Strip and found out coriander powder mix diluted in water have a ph6 (acidic), apple cider + bicarbonate soda have a ph 7 (nuetral), while 2 tsp coriander seeds blended mix with 1/2 cup of water with 1tsp of apple cider vinegar have a ph 4 (acidic).

Ph urine – Alkaline for boys and acidic for girls

Girl sperm lives for a longer period of time, although it is slower. The boy producing sperm move faster but they die off more quickly.

There are variety of variables that can influence your baby’s gender including when you attempt to conceive in terms of ovulation, the woman’s vaginal PH and sexual positions used.

pH testing is only the beginning, an acidic PH is detrimental to boy sperm so you want a alkaline PH if you want a baby girl. If this process indicate you’re acidic, then you’ll have to change your diet until you get to where you need to be.

Therefore, it’s important for your to know and to ensure your urine PH Level hits the correct PH along with positioning to ensure you’ll get your baby girl or baby boy.

How to heal UTI without antibiotics

The use of PH Indicator Strip

When you know you are about to have UTI or Urinary Tract Infection or if experience frequent urination, you’ll quickly drink more water and hope it’ll flush out the bacteria. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn’t. While others have no choice but to visit doctor to get medications. Normally your doctor will perscribe you with antibiotic and also sachets of urinary Alkalinizer.

Understanding UTI pH Level

Bacteria causing UTI multiply in alkaline environment and when your body pH Level switch to acidic, instantly these bacteria will be destroyed. That’s why it’s important to make use of urine pH test strip to test your urine. You may purchase urine test strip here in this website.

Curing UTI using natural herbs

I did a test using Macherey-Nagel Fix Indicator Strip on 1 sachet of urine alkalinizer dilute in water and the result show – ph of 5 (acidic).

Personally, i dislike consuming antibiotic as i know the consequences of these antibiotic which acts in killing off good and bad bacteria in our intestine. And so i use alternative medicine such as Ayurvedic coriander with apple cider vinegar and garlic to cure UTI naturally.

Here’s the result of using natural coriander with apple cider vinegar test show – ph 5 (acidic)

  • 2 tsp of blended /mill coriander seeds into powder form
  • Mix with 1/4 cup of water
  • Sieve water and add 1 drop of apple cider vinegar

Drink this twice a day

In addition, eat 2 raw cloves garlic a day to heal UTI.

Conclusion: Urine alkalinizer from doc’s perscription has the same ph level of 5 as Ayurvedic natural herbs mentioned above.

Why garlic? Garlic is a natural antibiotic because it doesn’t kill our healthy bacteria like drug antibiotics do.

If you would like to test other food ph or drinks for your own personal information, you can get this ph strip from our store.

We deliver via SkyNet for more reliable local and global delivery.

UTIs, diabetes, kidney disease…there are many reasons why you might need to test your urine
often.

Measures 12 Different Components of Urine

Micro albumin: tests for early nephropathy (early kidney disease).

Leukocytes: aka white blood cells. Also indicates presence of infection.

Nitrites: may be a sign of urinary tract infection or other infection.

Urobilinogen: checks for liver disease.

Protein: tests for kidney function.

pH: measures urine acidity, associated with higher risk for kidney stones.

Blood: can result from infection, injury, inflammation, kidney stones or cancer.

Specific gravity: evaluates the body’s water balance and urine concentration.

Ascorbate: this test reveals the concentration of ascorbic acid in urine which varies with the
intake. It is approximately half of the intake.

Ketones: caused by disorders of increased metabolism; also by unbalanced diets such as
high protein/low carb, anorexia or fasting.

Bilirubin: could indicate liver or gallbladder problems such as gallstones, hepatitis, cirrhosis or
tumors.

Glucose: the most common test for diabetes

Consider getting this if you are looking for URS-10A Urine Test Strips, the difference is URS-10A doesn’t have Ascorbate and Micro Albumin.


Reagent Strips Urine Test Strips

Why Test your Urine For Urobilinogen?

When abnormal values of urobilinogen is found during a urine test, further investigation is required to ascertain your true health status.

Normal urobilinogen range in urine

  • less than 17 umol/l (< 1mg/dl)

Urobilinogen measuring range

  • 0 – 8 mg/dl

Levels of urobilinogen in the urine

  • In the intestines bacteria form urobilinogen from bilirubin.
  • This is then absorbed and passes to the liver and urine.

Abnormal urobilinogen values may indicative of

  • Increased values
    • overburdening of the liver
    • excessive RBC breakdown
    • increased urobilinogen production
    • re-absorption – a large hematoma
    • restricted liver function
    • hepatic infection
    • poisoning

    • obstruction of bile passage

Why Test your Urine For Bilirubin?

When bilirubin is found during a urine test, further investigation is required to ascertain your true health status.

Normal bilirubin range in urine

  • up to 3 umol/l

Measuring range

  • negative, +, ++, +++

Bilirubin levels in urine

  • Hemoglobin (haemoglobin) breakdown results in bilirubin production. In the liver, bilirubin is conjugated to an acid to make conjugated bilirubin.
  • Unconjugated bilirubin is water soluble and can therefore be excreted in urine.

Abnormal bilirubin values may indicative of

  • Pre-hepatic (unconjugated bilirubin therefore does not appear in urine)
    • anemia’s
    • excessive breakdown of RBC
  • Hepatic
    • hepatitis
    • cirrhosis
    • obstruction of biliary duct
    • toxic liver damage
  • Post-hepatic
    • biliary tree obstruction

Why Test your Urine For Ketone?

Your body cells use sugar for energy. Insulin must be present for your body cells to use sugar for energy. When there is not enough insulin present your cells cannot use sugar to obtain the energy they need. If your body cannot get energy from sugar, fat is used instead. When fat is broken down, ketone are made. Ketone are strong acids and are harmful to your body. Ketone in your urine may be a sign that you are developing diabetic ketoacidosis.

When should you test your urine for ketone?

  • If you are currently participate in a weight loss program, testing the Ketone content in your urine from time to time able to help you to track closely the sugar content and fat content in your body after exercise (To track whether the exercise program that you are participating is helping you effectively reduce of your body fat or not)
  • If your blood sugar tests are higher than 250 mg/dL for two or more tests in a row.
  • If you are feeling like your blood sugar is high.
  • If you think you have an infection.
  • If you are throwing up or feel sick to your stomach.
  • If you are ill or stressed.

If you have Type 1 diabetes, you should always have a supply of the strips used for urine ketone testing and know how to use them.

If you have Type 2 diabetes, your doctor or nurse will tell you if you need to do urine ketone testing.

If you are pregnant your doctor or nurse will tell you when to test your urine for ketone.


The urine ketone test will tell you whether you have no ketones present or if you have trace, small, moderate, or large ketones present.

If your urine has moderate or Large ketones present, call your doctor or nurse right away.

Follow the directions for testing exactly and time the test accurately. Read the directions before doing the test. Protect the test strips from damage that might change the results.

Do not touch the test area of the strip or allow it to touch the table.

Protect the test strips from moisture, direct sunlight and heat. Keep the test strips in a cool, dry place but do not store in the refrigerator. Do not remove desiccant (white packet in bottle). Replace the bottle cap promptly and tightly.

Check the expiration date on your test strips. Do not use if the date has passed. Use the strips within 6 months after first opening the bottle.

Do not use test strips that have discolored.

Ketones: caused by disorders of increased metabolism; also by unbalanced diets such as high protein/low carb, anorexia or fasting.

Why Test your Urine For Blood?

When you find blood or hemoglobin (haemoglobin) during a urine test, further investigation is required to ascertain your true health status.

Normal blood range in urine

  • Detections of blood cells or hemoglobin (haemoglobin) in urine as it is of pathological significance

Abnormal blood / hemoglobin (haemoglobin) values may indicative of

  • Hematuria (haematuria) (blood in urine)
    • kidney and bladder calculi
    • damage to kidney or urinary tract
  • Hemaglobinuria (haemaglobinuria) (hemoglobin in urine)
    • breakdown of red blood cells
    • poisoning
  • Myoglobinuria
    • myocardial infarct
    • muscle damage

Why Test your Urine For Protein?

This test is most often performed to detect the kidney disease and you will need to cousult doctor immediately when you discovered large amount of protein shown in the test result.

Normally, protein is not found in urine when a routine dipstick test is performed. However, tiny amounts of protein can be detected using special methods. This is because the kidney is supposed to keep large substances like protein in the blood. Even if small amounts of protein do get through, the body normally reabsorbs them.

Some proteins will appear in the urine if the levels of protein in blood become high, even when the kidney is working properly.

If the kidney is diseased, protein will appear in the urine even if blood protein levels are normal.

Small increases in urine protein levels are usually not a cause for concern.

However, larger amounts of protein in the urine may be due to:

  • Amyloidosis
  • Bladder tumor
  • Congestive heart failure
  • Dehydration

    • cystitis
    • urethritis
  • Contamination
    • vaginal secretion

Why Test your Urine For Glucose?

The glucose urine test measures the amount of sugar (glucose) in a urine sample. The presence of glucose in the urine is called glycosuria or glucosuria. The main purpose of this Glucose Urine Test is use to track the existence and level of Diabetes.

Glucose is not usually found in urine. If it is, further testing is needed.

Normal glucose range in urine: 0 – 0.8 mmol/l (0 – 15 mg/dL)

Greater than normal levels of glucose may occur with:

Diabetes, although blood glucose tests are needed to diagnose diabetes. Small increases in urine glucose levels after a large meal are not always a cause for concern.

A rare condition in which glucose is released from the kidneys into the urine, even when blood glucose levels are normal (renal glycosuria)

Pregnancy — up to half of women will have glucose in their urine at some point during pregnancy. Glucose in the urine may mean that a woman has gestational diabetes.

Glucose will only show up in the urine once it has reached high levels in the blood.

Diabetes is a lifelong (chronic) disease in which there are high levels of sugar in the blood.

There are three major types of diabetes. The causes and risk factors are different for each type:

Type 1 diabetes can occur at any age, but it is most often diagnosed in children, teens, or young adults. In this disease, the body makes little or no insulin. Daily injections of insulin are needed. The exact cause is unknown.

Type 2 diabetes makes up most of diabetes cases. It most often occurs in adulthood, but teens and young adults are now being diagnosed with it because of high obesity rates. Many people with type 2 diabetes do not know they have it.

Gestational diabetes is high blood sugar that develops at any time during pregnancy in a woman who does not have diabetes.

There is no cure for diabetes. Treatment involves medicines, diet, and exercise to control blood sugar and prevent symptoms and problems.

Why Test your Urine For Specific Gravity?

When looking at the results of an urine test which tested the specific gravity of urine a person could deduce certain information regarding the health of the test subject, but any such deductions should be confirmed by further tests.

Normal specific gravity range in urine

  • 1.020 -1.030 g/ml

The range of the specific gravity tested

  • 1.005 – 1.030 g/ml

The results of specific gravity levels in urine

Why Test your Urine For Microalbumin?

A microalbumin test checks urine for the presence of a protein called albumin. Albumin is normally found in the blood and filtered by the kidneys. When the kidneys camera.gif are working properly, albumin is not present in the urine. But when the kidneys are damaged, small amounts of albumin leak into the urine. This condition is called microalbuminuria.

Microalbuminuria is most often caused by kidney damage from diabetes. But many other conditions can lead to kidney damage, such as high blood pressure, heart failure, cirrhosis, or systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE). If early kidney damage is not treated, larger amounts of albumin and protein may leak into the urine. This condition is called macroalbuminuria or proteinuria. When the kidneys spill protein, it can mean serious kidney damage is present. This can lead to chronic kidney disease. A microalbumin urine test can be done on a sample of urine collected randomly (usually after the first time you urinate in the morning), a sample collected over a 24-hour period, or a sample collected over a specific period of time, such as 4 hours or overnight.
