Urine specimens from diabetic patients with glucosuria may contain three, four, five, or more grams glucose per deciliter of urine, resulting in a specific gravity value by refractometer of 0.012, 0.016, or 0.020 higher than by reagent strip. The reagent strip reading on these specimens might be less than 1.005, due to diuresis as the kidney increases water output in excreting glucose.
