Urine Sugar (R) is a random urine sugar test taken randomly a day without any schedule. This test used to screen random Urine Glucose levels. Sugar (Glucose) is responsible for energy in our body. If Glucose level elevated in the blood, it would be eliminated through urine. The excess glucose level in the urine is a sign of the diabetic condition. This test helps to ensure Diabetes Mellitus. Medical professionals suggest this blood test when a person experiences symptoms of diabetes.


Normally this hormone insulin helps to glucose entry from the bloodstream into the cells. In uncontrolled diabetic patients when glucose levels reach high levels beyond threshold levels (in normal levels glucose is usually reabsorbed by kidneys), it is excreted in the urine (glucosuria), hence can be tested by urine glucose test. This test helps to diagnose diabetes and also to manage their condition to prevent further complications (such as diabetic ketoacidosis due to uncontrolled diabetes mellitus).

This test is usually done for the medical diagnosis of certain abnormalities such as pancreatitis, pancreatic cancers, and an underactive thyroid. Low levels of glucose also indicate self-administration of overuse of insulin dose, starvation, Addison’s disease, insulinoma, kidney diseases, etc. This test is suggested in patients with symptoms such as increased thirst, frequent urination, fatigue, shortness of breath, stomach pain, fruity breath odor, dry mouth, nausea, and vomiting, etc. Other associated tests include Benedict’s test, Fehling’s test, etc.
