    Abstract: Isolated renal glycosuria is a rare genetic disease caused by mutations in SLC5A2 gene. The mutation leads to a defect in glucose transporter, sodium-glucose co-transporter 2 (SGLT2), which is involved in the reabsorption of glucose from proximal tubules. Defect in this transporter leads to loss of glucose in urine. This rare disease has not been r... Show More
