Yes, that's exactly the problem of my youngest son Jeffrey. We just came from his pedia because I was worried about his frequent urination. For 3 days, he keeps on going to the CR for about 4-5 times in an hour. So I went to MCU this morning and had his urine check in their lab.
The doctor didn't see anything wrong with the results of his urinalysis. He said that it is just a "Pollakiuria" that has something to do with stress or fear. There's no medication and it will eventually go back to normal.
So I googled it and found this article about his condition...
Frequent Daytime Urination- Pollakiuria
A 4 year old boy is brought in to your office by his mother who is very distressed because her son is urinating very frequently. According to his mother, he urinates every 5-10 minutes. How would you evaluate this patient?
Pollakiuria is defined as frequent daytime urination that may occur as often as every 5 minutes, although usually the child urinates 3-4 times/hour. This is a common pediatric complaint and the parents are usually concerned that their child has diabetes mellitus or a UTI. The majority of children are between 4-6 years of age. Pollakiuria is more common than urinary tract infections in children. Symptoms may last for years, but the average length is 7-12 months.
*There is no dysuria and the volumes of urine are small (no polyuria)
*There is no incontinence, dribbling, and the urinary stream is normal
*Although there may be nocturia, it is not to the extent of the daytime frequency.
*There are no changes in bowel habits
*There may be "stress" factors identified
Now I have a peace of mind, for I know that his condition is also happening to any other boys and girls in his age and that there's no need for him to take any medications. But I keep on wondering what kind of "stress" triggered his frequent urination? I need to observe my bunso... hindi kaya dahil sa SF or LEFT 4 DEAD ? HAHAHA!!!!
