Drinking too much - Previous post 1035
Hi again, please refer to my previous post and your response - post number 1035.

I took my son for the diabetes test, and it showed normal. Could there be any other reason for the amount of liquid he consumes in a day, that I can check for.

Dibetes still remains the most likely cause. Sometimes a blood test rather than a urine test is needed. Another possibility is a urinary infection. It would be best to have your son checked by a paediatrician.
