Diabetes Urine Test - Glucose Oxidase Test

Paper or plastic strips, called diastix or tes-tape are available in the market. A colour-chart is provided along with the strips. While passing urine two hours after a meal, the person has to hold a tes-tape or a diasix strip in the urine-stream for a few moments.

The strip  changes colour on coming in contact with the urine. After 30 to 60 seconds the colour of the strip should be matched with one of the colours of the provided chart to assess the amount of sugar in the urine.

Both the above tests are more simple and sensitive than Benedict's test; but they are somewhat expensive. They are very useful to a person who is away from home.

The note given below Benedict's test is applicable to glucose oxidase test as well.
