a) Ketonuria and Glycosuria


Diabetes mellitus leads to a complex disorder called prolonged hyperglycemia, which is associated with loss of glucose through urine known as glycosuria and when the cell are unable to utilize carbohydrates for energy instead they use fats & proteins, and degradation of these fats produces ketone bodies. The presence of these ketone bodies in urine is known as ketonuria.
