    What type of diabetes do you have and what diabetes meds are you on, if any?

    It really helps us to answer questions if your profile and information pages are filled in.

    Looking back at your posting history, it seems you take Jardiance? If so, sugar in your urine is not unusual; indeed, it's how that medication works. You wee out some of your blood sugar.

    If your blood sugars are high, that may need some additional attention, and maybe even an additional, or different medication.

    Were you checked for ketones, with those high blood sugars?

    Weehotty, if I was taking Jadiance, or any of the other drugs in that class, I'd want to have a means of testing ketones. By far, the best option is blood testing for ketones, but a urine test stick is much pocket friendly.
