Urine test for Diabetes? I'm scared.

I went in for a regular checkup, because I have frequent urination and thirst. The doctor checked my sugar levels through urine and then she told the medical assistant to do it with blood. While I was in the room with the medical assistant, she told me the doctor want her to check my blood because I have high glucose levels in my urine. She said I could be pre- diabetic and etc. So when the doctor came in she said your blood is good. No diabetes, I asked her was it in my urine and she said you don't have diabetes. My Mom has type 1. And I'm scared. I have these symptoms and can't make sense of this? any help

Glycosuria is nearly always caused by elevated blood glucose levels, most commonly due to untreated diabetes mellitus. Get your blood sugar levels and HbA1c levels done to confirm the diagnosis.

It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care and please do keep me posted on how you are doing.
