Frequent urination in children
My son is 5. Monday afternoon, he started to go to the bathroom a lot, multiple times an hour. He also woke up 4-5 times during the night to go. He said it did not hurt. Tuesday at school (3 hours) his teacher said he had gone to the bathroom 6 times. On the way home I had to pull over twice so he could go. Yesterday afternoon I brought him to the pediatrician, and his urine analysis was completely normal. She said he did not have a UTI and scheduled is for a recheck in three days. Last night I slept in his room to keep an eye on him. He woke up to urinate 8 times, and wet the bed a little bit once. Not typical for him at all.
The pedi mentioned diabetes, but there were no ketones or glucose in his urine. He has been eating and drinking ( mostly eating) a lot more than normal though for the past 2-3 weeks. He is acting completely normal though.
I am going to call the pediatrician as soon as they open today to bring him back in. Last night was brutal.
Anyone have experience with something similar? I am assuming the pedi will want to run bloodwork, but I am not sure if I should specifically ask for something else.
Maybe I am overreacting. I just have a gut feeling something more is going on.y husband is very concerned also, which isn't like him.
