Non-diabetic Glycosuria, also known as Renal Glycosuria, is a rare inherited condition involving the excretion of glucose in the urine in detectable amounts, even though the blood sugar level is in a normal range. In this condition, the body will get rid of the glucose in the blood, even though there is no excess amount.
Renal tubules in the kidney are responsible for the cleaning process of blood. During the condition, when the blood flows through the kidney, the glucose and other substances will be removed from the liquid portion of the blood through the renal tubules.
- Treatments are not generally needed for most people with the disorder.
- However, there are increased chances of developing diabetes mellitus in some people who will be prescribed the appropriate mediations, including ACE inhibitors, statins, metformin, insulin, statins, and Anti-glucagon peptide 1 receptor antagonists.
- They also need to follow periodic medical care to manage the symptoms.
- There are three types of Renal Glycosuria, including BenignRenal Glycosuria, Glycosuria with diabetes mellitus (such as gestational diabetes), and tubular defects (like Fanconi Syndrome).
- Patients who are diagnosed with benign renal glycosuria can reverse their condition with proper treatment in healthy lifestyle changes.
