Familial Renal Glucosuria, in the absence of any renal dysfunction, is the excretion of significant amounts of glucose through the urine. This condition is caused due to mutation in the sodium-glucose cotransporter gene. The condition causes an abnormal level of sugar in the blood which hinders and obstructs many bodily functions. The kidneys play an important role of maintaining the glucose homeostasis in the body.
