Yes. Testing blood and urine samples are two ways to look for high blood sugar levels and diagnose diabetes. Apart from testing blood, testing a urine sample is the only way to confirm diabetes. This is done by collecting a fresh sample of first urine passed in the morning. Care should be taken that the sample is collected without touching the skin. Some initial urine should be allowed to pass off before beginning collection. The sample should be collected in a sterile container obtained from the laboratory and sent for analysis immediately. Using the dipstick method and other chemical reagents, the urine is assessed for presence of glucose in it. Presence of glucose in urine is abnormal and indicates diabetes. A blood test of Fasting blood sugar and Postprandial blood sugar should be done to confirm it.
