About Reducing substances (urine)
What are reducing substances?
Reducing substances in the urine typically refers to sugars such as glucose, lactose, galactose and fructose. While it is normal to have small amounts of these substances in the urine (primarily glucose), elevated levels can indicate metabolic problems.
Why take the test?
This test checks for elevated levels of reducing substances (sugars) in the urine. It is typically used as a generic test for problems with carbohydrate metabolism in newborns.
