Uti---- with sugar found in urine
 
Yesterday I went to a urgent care clinic because I had a uti with pain in my kidney. This is the second time I had such a bad uti. The last time (almost two years ago) I had let it go on for to long till my leftside was in pain this time it only took one day for it to become unbearable. I took an over the counter cranberry pill hoping that would help till I made it to the urgent care. When the results for the uti came up positive the doctor also mentioned sugar in the urine test, he thought it could be related to the cranberry pill. I just wanted to know if anyone has had that come up in a urine sample as well and if it could be pointing to other issues?

Glucose in the urine is often a sign of diabetes. Have you been tested for this? It could have been the cause of the uti.

Idk last year I had regular blood work done by a general physician but I don't know if that is something they would do. Oh but I do remeber fasting that night and giving them a urine sample.
