What To Think About
- Glucose levels in urine can also be measured. Many people with diabetes have glucose in their urine. But the level in the blood must be very high before glucose can be detected in the urine. For this reason, tests for glucose in urine are not used to diagnose or monitor diabetes. To learn more, see Reference Urine Test.
- If you have diabetes, you will be able to measure your blood glucose levels at home. To learn more, see Reference Home Blood Glucose Test.
