    Default Sugar in the urine not in the blood - probably because of what I ate right?

    I just got back from the doctors and they found levels of sugar/glucose in my pee but when we did the finger prick test for blood, levels were normal.

    Could this be because for breakfast I had coco pops and then ate a few mini Easter Eggs? I have to do fasting tomorrow and go have my levels checked with a proper blood test, I just want to do know if there's a big different with the urine/blood and if it was attributed to what I ate.

    Were there any ketones in your urine?

    I dont believe so. They didn't go into too much detail once the finger prick came up all normal.

    the pee test is much more broad than a blood test. It indicates that there could be a prob but blood tests rule it out.

    Sugar/proteins in urine indicate a metabolic disorder ie diabetes and kidney trauma (mainly due to high blood pressure)

    sugar/proteins in blood indicate whats happening right then.
