A.

The kidneys usually don't spill glucose (sugar) in the urine unless you have high blood sugar at a level of 200 mg/dL or higher.  The American Diabetic Associaiton (ADA) does not recommend that people with diabetes do routine urine glucose testing if you are able to do fingerstick blood glucose testing.

Here is a link to an article from the ADA - one of the tips discusses urine glucose testing.
