I've recently noticed I get sweet-smelling urine *every* time I eat something sweet, even a little too much non-fermented dairy. Now, I know that sugar spilling over into urine takes something like twice the "healthy" level of blood glucose, and I know that constant spilling means you have diabetes. I also know that diabetes can be "fixed" by eating nothing sweet!
My question is, if it is *only* sweet when I eat something sweet, and that's rare, what does that mean? Insulin resistance only and always when I eat one sweet thing? Or is it not working right between meals? Or is it possibly a kidney filtering problem?
I'm trying to understand before going to a doctor, b/c a doctor's obvious answer will be "Sugar spilling over into urine = diabetes." But if diabetes can be taken care of by not eating sugar, that's the obvious solution. I just want to know what it means that when I eat a dessert (once in a blue moon), or too much fruit, why my urine gets sweet and my husband's does not. What's the physiological difference there, and is there anything medicine can do for that situation, since it doesn't seem conventional diabetes treatment makes sense for someone who is almost never eating sweet foods? I'll go to a doctor if there's anything that can/should be done, sure.
FWIW, I get parched when I eat those foods as well, but ONLY when I eat them. I'm not experiencing any rapid weight loss (about .5lb/week over the last year of going primal), etc. I was almost certainly hypoglycemic pre-primal, but never got officially diagnosed. Those symptoms of dizziness, head-spinning, crazy cravings, etc., were what scared me into getting sugar out of my life.
