i had my urine tested the other day, as i have yet another UTI, and the dip stick said i have "100 glucose".

i know that damaged/ diseased kidneys can "dump" glucose, but should i be worried about diabetes?

and is "100 glucose" enough to be worried about at all?

sorry the "100 glucose" is vague, but thats what the G.P said it was lol

Love love x

Don't leave.

Never leave the Doctors office without understanding what was said. Many doctors will just tell you "You got this - do that". As if s/he knows best and you don't need to know, just obey.

It's not that harsh in reality but that's the tendency of Doctors. It takes time to explain and that's what they're selling. Time.

So you have got to be your best advocate. If you forget to ask, like this time, call back and ask for an explanation and the answer to your diabetes question.

Then let us know.

Glucose is a simple sugar which is a permanent and immediate primary source of energy to all of the cells in our body. The glucose in blood is obtained from the food that you eat. This glucose gets absorbed by intestines and distributed to all of the cells in body through bloodstream and breaks it down for energy.

Hi, you can determine your blood sugar using the blood sugar levels chart. Take the reading up to four times to be sure that what you are getting is accurate. I think this will help http://healthiack.com/health/what-is-normal-blood-sugar-level
