Urine Testing

diabetes support

In patients with diabetes, urine tests may be used to assess kidney function, estimate glucose levels and detect complications such as diabetic ketoacidosis, kidney disease, infections and more. There are three different kinds of urine test for diabetes, for testing three different substances in the urine: glucose, ketones, and microscopic amounts of protein (microalbuminuria). The presence of microalbuminuria in the urine is an early sign of kidney disease. However, health care providers recommend that those interested in attaining good blood glucose control use blood glucose tests, not urine test strips, becouse glucose is not detectable in the urine unless the blood glucose levels have been above 180 mg/dl, which means that urine tests are virtually useless at detecting hypoglycemia (low blood sugar levels).

Sometimes, your doctor may perform a urine test to determine if your glucose (blood sugar) is dangerously high and if you are producing substances called ketones. Ketone is a substance that can be found in trace amounts in urine. However, when large amounts of ketone are found in your urine it is an indication of a serious problem, especially for people with diabetes.

Ketone is produced when you burn too much fat and carbohydrates. This situation is more likely to be found in people with Type I diabetes (insulin dependent). When you produce a lot of ketones, it is a good indication that your diabetes may be out of control. This complication is called Ketoacidosis and can lead to a coma. The Ketones Urine Test can provide a warning signal for you to contact a doctor before you diabetes get out of control. Your health care provider can then recommend the necessary actions for you to get better.
