- Urine Sugar
Sugar (glucose) is normally not found in urine, but when blood glucose levels are higher than 180 milligrams/deciliter the kidneys are not able to filter the high levels and glucose will spill into the urine. Urine glucose levels can then be measured using a dip-stick. This method is no longer used, since most people with DM use a glucometer to measure blood sugar levels.
