Kamran,

The drivers on this site really know about the trucking industry, but they are not a doctor. Although you blood sugar seemed normal, you had sugar in your urine, you should seek the help of a medical proffesional, that being your primary care doc. It could all be a storm in a tea cup, but you need a proffesional to tell you so.

Have half a grapefruit and black coffee instead? But seriously, my understanding is that high levels of blood sugar cause sugar in urine, so not consuming a lot of calories ahead of your test would seem like the way to do it. Maybe drink lots of water to dilute it? I don't know.

Are you saying that Knight sent you home once before because of that, even after doing a different test for diabetes? Then it seems like it might be a good idea to see your doctor to see if there is any other reason for it. But I guess it's too late for that now.

Insulin?

No seriously. You should see a Doctor and get blood work done. Diabetes is serious and in most cases easily managed.
