Does anybody know if diabetes can be detected through glucose content of the urine? if so can both type one and/or two diabetes be detected this way?

If the blood glucose becomes too high, usually over approximately 300 mg/dl, it may "spill over" from the blood filtering through the kidneys into the urine and be detectable in the urine - often tested with home monitoring strips. Both type 1 and type 2 diabetics can have very high blood glucose levels (over 300) indicating both type 1 and type 2 diabetics can have glucosuria. Hope this helps.

Yeah if level of glucose exceeds 160mg of glucose/dL of blood kidneys cannot absorb all
Usually Benedict's test can be use to determine presence of glucose(Cu2Ois formed)
Change of color is from blue(normal),to green, yellow and brick-red(2000mg/dL)

Yes, urine can be used to detect blood sugar level. About DM types we can detect by estimating insulin level, e.g. by radioimmunoassay kit.
