DFI Glucose Urine Test Strip (Pack of 100)
What does the test involve?
Glucose is the type of sugar found in blood. Normally there is very little or no glucose in urine. When the blood sugar level is very high, as in uncontrolled diabetes, the sugar spills over into the urine. Glucose can also be found in urine when the kidneys are damaged or diseased.
They are intended solely for use by medical professionals who will know how to correctly interpret the results.
Why is this test needed?
Approximately 50% of people with diabetes don’t know they have it. Unhealthy diets, obesity and lack of exercise are the main causes of diabetes. If you have diabetes and are diagnosed early, you can be treated before illness develops. Diabetes is a major cause of heart disease and stroke and the main cause of kidney failure, limb amputations and blindness in adults. Most cases of diabetes can be treated with just dietary measures and oral medication. Early diagnosis is critical.
