Hi, I'm not a medical professional, just the parent of a kid with diabetes.  Symptoms of diabetes are listed here:

Most common symptoms are frequent urination, extreme and constant thirst, unexplained weight loss, increased appetite, and being very tired.  

There are several things which can cause sugar in the urine, diabetes is only one.  I am not familiar with all of them, but I do know that a main one is kidney problems.  It might be wise to check with your doctor about testing for kidney problems to help determine why the sugar was present, as well as to help ease your concerns.  Good luck.
