In healthy individuals the glucose is filtered by the glomerulus and later almost completely reabsorbed in the proximal tubules. As the result, urine contains glucose only in minor amounts. When the glucose concentration in the blood exceeds the renal threshold level of 160-180 mg/dL (8.88-9.99 mmol/l,), namely, occurs hyperglycemia, the glucose reabsorption is ceased and glucose appears in the urine. Another mechanism which may lead to glucosuria is associated with the kidney diseases. In this case so-called renal glucosuria occurs and the concentration of glucose in the blood remains mormal.
Normally there are no red blood cells (RBCs) in urine. Different disorders may cause hematuria – the condition characterized by the presence of the RBCs in urine. The urine becomes pink, red or tea-colored when there are a lot of erythrocytes in urine. This color change may be detected without any special tests and therefore is known as gross or macroscopic hematuria. When the amount of erythrocytes is relatively small they may be identified only via microscopy, respectively, this type of hematuria is called microscopic hematuria. Sometimes hematuria may be an accidental finding on routine urinalysis. Periods may mimic hematuria as the menstrual blood mixes with urine.
