Diabetes mellitus is a metabolic disease that causes high blood sugar. A urine test can detect various substances, including glucose, protein, bacteria... Therefore; diabates is diagnosed and managed by checking your glucose levels in a blood test.


There are three tests that can measure your blood glucose levels. fasting glucose test (measure your blood sugar after an overnight ie. not eating....). random glucose test (measure your blood sugar at any time ie. not need fasting.....). and A1C test (known as the homoglobin A1C test....).

How do you carry out a reducing sugars test? To test for the presence of reducing sugars, a food sample is dissolved in boiling water. Next, a small amount of Benedict's reagent is added and the solution begins to cool. During the next four to 10 minutes, the solution should begin to change colors. If the color changes to blue, then no glucose is present. Thank you for your participation. - From Robert Sidose | 31/Oct/2022 09:36 AM

Benedict's solution can be used to test for the presence of glucose in urine. Some sugars such as glucose are called reducing sugars because they are capable of transferring hydrogens to other compounds, a process called reduction. @John Div. - From Robert Sidose | 31/Oct/2022 09:23 AM
