Have you been checked for diabetes? Another way to check your urine for this is, if you're a guy, you probably get a few drops on the toilet seat. Don't wipe them off, just let them dry, then take a pice of tissue and try to wipe them off. If you have too much sugar in your urine, the drops will be very sticky.

no, ive never been checked for diabetes. also, i am female, but i could still try the dribble check.
Is this something to be concerned about, or does it occur occasionally in most people? thanks for the tips.

i agree about diabetes, a bloodsugar test will be more reliable, protein in urine is another possibility
