Sample Type: URINE FASTING
This test checks for the presence of glucose or sugar in the urine. It is a qualitative test. Normally glucose is not present in the urine, but when the blood level crosses 180 mg/dl, it starts to leak in the urine. Detection of sugar in urine indicates uncontrolled diabetes.
Test is performed on a urine sample. A twelve hour fast is required. No food or drink, water is OK. Do not drink alcohol for at least 24 hrs before the test.
