A urine glucose test determines whether or not glucose (sugar) is present in the urine.
Glucose will overflow into the urine only when the blood glucose level is high, that is, too high for the kidneys to stop it from spilling over into the urine. In most people, blood glucose levels above 10 mmol of glucose per liter of plasma will cause glucose to appear in the urine. This level is called the ‘renal threshold’ for glucose.
However, the renal threshold for glucose can be lower in some people who are otherwise healthy, during pregnancy, and in people who have a kidney disorder. In these people, glucose may be present in the urine despite the blood glucose being normal. This can sometimes make urine glucose tests difficult to interpret.

How the Test is Performed
A urine sample is needed.
Usually, the health care provider checks for glucose in the urine sample using a dipstick made with a color-sensitive pad. The pad contains chemicals that react with glucose. The color that the dipstick changes tell the provider how much glucose is in your urine.
Your health care provider may tell you to stop taking drugs that may affect the results of the test.
Other drugs also can cause false negative or false positive results, depending on the type of test strip used. Talk to your doctor.
Greater than normal levels of glucose may be a sign of:
Glucose release from the kidneys into the urine (renal glycosuria)
Note: Results may vary slightly among different laboratories. Talk to your doctor about the meaning of your specific test results.
