What can cause a constant pinching sensation and sensitivity to garments at the urethra/ penis tip?

The urinary meatus is essentially the opening of the urethra. What this means is that it is the point where urine exits the urethra in males and in females. It is also the point where semen exits the urethra in males. The meatus is located on the glans of the penis or in the vulval vestibule. Some doctors would refer to it as the external urethral orifice. It presents as a vertical slit and continues longitudinally along the front aspect of the glans. The meatus can have varying degrees of sensitivity to touch.

What can cause glucose, protein and blood to be found in urine?

Glucose in the urine (also known as glycosuria) is associated with diabetes. I would highly recommend doing a fasting blood glucose to screen for diabetes should there be glucose in the urine. Protein in the urine (also known as proteinuria) can be a sign of nephrotic syndrome, or an early sign of kidney disease. You may be more at risk for having it if you have one or more of the risk factors for kidney disease such as diabetes, high blood pressure or a family history of kidney disease.
