Test Code:
090-10-0650-02

Order Name:
Sugar (Dip , Urine)

 
Useful For:
This is a rapid test intended for detection of glucose (sugar) in the urine. The roles for reagent strip glucose testing in urine 
 
Methodology:
This two-step enzymatic reaction uses glucose oxidase, peroxidase and a chromogen. Glucose oxidase catalyze the formation of gluconic acid and hydrogen peroxide via the oxidation of glucose. Peroxidase catalyzes the reaction of hydrogen peroxide with a chromogen via the oxidation of chromogen to colors ranging between green to gray-blue.

Clinical Information:
Glycosuria may occur in situations, such as pregnancy, in which the increased filtered load may exceed renal tubular reabsorption capacity. Rarely corticosteroid therapy may cause a combination of mild hyperglycemia and increased renal glomerular filtration, producing glycosuria. Renal glycosuria due to a low renal threshold for glucose occurs either as an isolated phenomenon or as part of tubular damage. Because these causes of glucosuria are rare and glucosuria usually indicates significant hyperglycemia, a positive screening test for urine glucose is significant and indicates a substantial likelihood of diabetes mellitus in the nonpregnant patient.
