So my son has always loved his water and takes his cup everywhere. He does not have a fav lovey, stuffed animal or anything but always carries his water cup. I'm noticing an definite increase in the last few months. Constantly drinks and always wants refills. I have not gauged exactly how much he takes during the day but I can say without a doubt it's a very large amount. Due to this he's been going through diapers like crazy. It's to the point where he's soaking through overnight Huggies in less then 2 hrs!!! I got his glucose tested a couple weeks ago and Dr said levels came back completely fine. Is there any other way diabetes can be diagnosed if not through the blood? We did not give a urinalysis as he wouldn't do it in lab at that time. Once we got the call back about blood being normal we held off on the urine. He's very active, always on the go. Naps for about 1.5-2hrs a day. He's got a good appetite, eats well and likes to snack a lot but so does my older boy who is almost 5. He does not drink juice, only water. He is at a healthy weight. Not losing any weight either. He was sick about a month ago with RSV, lost a lb or 2 from not eating and vomiting but gained it back within a week of being well again. Something is wrong But I don't know what to look for, any advice or similar experiences would be greatly appreciated.
