Glycosuria (Sugar in Urine)
For the past year or so, the toilet I use most often grows mold in the bowl very quickly. Without thinking too much about it, I figured it was probably due to the long-term antibiotice. But as I thought about it more, that didn't make sense to me.
I was researching and found that mold in the toilet bowl is often a sign of diabetes because the sugar in the urine gives the mold something to feed on.
In looking over my metabolic blood tests of the last few years, my glucose levels have all be normal, with the exception of one that was slightly elevated. However, none of these tests were down when fasting. Knowing my typical schedule, they were probably mostly done right after lunch.
Has anyone else here found mold in their toilet? Could it be related to Cpn? Could it be related to porphyria? I was wondering if the kidneys are struggling due to die-off then maybe they are not reabsorbing sugar as they should.
Thanks for any insights.
