Frequent Daytime Urination

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.

Frequent characteristics:

*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!!!!

  1. Hello! I happened to come across your blog when googling frequent urination. My son is 3 and this is the second time he has this problem. It does go away on its own, but the last time it took over a month. He is peeing constantly....the second he does done, he goes back again. It breaks my heart.

    Please let me know how your son is doing.

    JENN!!

  2. My 3 year old daughter has had this problem for 2 weeks. I took her to teh doctor who checked her urine for infections but it was negative. How long did it take your child to recover, i hope it has. It is very distressing watching your child go to the toilet all the time. Laura

    It should at all times be stimulating to read content material from other

    writers and observe a bit of

    something from their store. I’d choose to use some with the

    content on my weblog whether or not you don’t mind.
    Natually I’ll give you a link on your internet blog.

  12. My programmer is trying to convince me to move to .net from PHP.
    I have always disliked the

    idea because of the expenses. But he's tryiong none the less. I've been using Movable-type on several websites for about a year
    and am nervous about

    switching to another platform. I have heard excellent things about

  18. Today, I went to the beach with my kids. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year

    old daughter and said "You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear." She placed the shell to her ear and

    screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her
    ear. She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is

    entirely off topic but I had to tell someone!
