Can you test for diabetes with a urine sample?

Urine tests for diabetes facts. Urine tests may be done in people with diabetes to evaluate severe hyperglycemia (severe high blood sugar) by looking for ketones in the urine. Ketones are a metabolic product produced when fat is metabolized. Ketones increase when there is insufficient insulin to use glucose for energy.

Is there a home test for sugar in urine?

If the colors on the test strip do not change, you do not have sugar in your urine. The more the color changes, the more sugar there is in your urine, and therefore in your blood. But it is not possible to find out exact blood sugar levels using urine tests.
