WHEN TAKING PHYSICALS, WHAT DOES SP.GR/ PROTEIN/ BLOOD/ SUGAR STAND FOR AND WHAT ARE THE NORMALS?

Hi,
Those look like urine test results.
SG-specific gravity--a measure of how concentrated your urine is during the test.
Protein--levels of protein in the urine--you should not have any, or just minimal. Anything more, unless your are pregnant, is not normal
Sugar--sugars in the urine. YOu should not have any if you do not have diabetes or kidney disease.
Hope this helps.
