Hi bobbymm

#435. Name the medical term : The excretion of glucose into the urine. Ordinarily, urine contains no glucose because the kidneys are able to reclaim all of the filtered glucose back into the bloodstream. It is nearly always caused by elevated blood glucose levels, most commonly due to untreated diabetes mellitus. Rarely, it is due to an intrinsic problem with glucose reabsorption within the kidneys themselves. It leads to excessive water loss into the urine with resultant dehydration, a process called osmotic diuresis.
