This lab will help students understand the relationship between blood glucose levels and diabetes. The lab starts with a background reading on diabetes and explains what we will be doing in the lab. Students then follow procedures to test "urine samples" from patients with glucose test strips. Glucose test strips are inexpensively available on Amazon or from a local drug store. The lab is in a doc format so you can edit the color of the glucose test strips according to the brand you purchase. Students then analyze the results and determine which patient has diabetes. Analysis questions prompt students to think of other reasons patients might lack energy and apply their knowledge of other body systems.
