Disease relevance of Clinitest

  • Infants were chosen who had sustained hyperglycemia (150 mg/dl) and glucosuria (2+ Clinitest) requiring glucose infusion at a rate below 7 mg/kg/minute for more than 24 hours [1].
  • Five children developed esophageal stricture from the ingestion of a Clinitest tablet [2].
  • Clinitest tablets produced distal esophagitis and stricture and antral damage leading to gastric outlet obstruction which required operative intervention [3].
  • In a laboratory, students a) determined blood pressures on six videotaped subjects, b) graded sugar content of unknown solutions from 0 to 4+ using Clinitest tablets, c) measured papules that simulated PPD reactions, d) measured heart and kidney size on X-rays and, e) described a model skin lesion (melanoma) [4].
  • The 2-drop Clinitest method detects glycosuria up to 5% without significant loss of accuracy and is recommended in preference to the 5-drop method [5].
