Hello Mrs XXXX,

Thanks for posting your query.

The simple answer to your question is. The report means, your daughter is fine and she does not have urinary tract infection.

Of course there are other tests that can be done, but they are not necessary as this test shows that there is no infection.

Hope this answers your question. Please do not hesitate to write back if you have any more questions or if you need further clarification.

Wishing you and your daughter good health.

Warm regards,

Hello Mrs XXXX,

Thanks for writing back.

Yes, urinating so often is quite significant, and it does mean that she has some problem.

If I may, does she have any other symptoms at all along with urinating so often? Say like, burning while passing urine, pain, irritation, feeling the urge to urinate or anything at all?

A few things come to my mind in considering this particular presentation,

1. Diabetes insipidus, Drinking too much water, in turn passing too much urine.
2. Diabetes mellitus, Feeling thirst due to high blood glucose levels which make leads to more urine formation and leads to loss of water.
3. Over active bladder muscle (Nerves supplying the bladder are overacting).
4. A stone in the urinary tract.

The best way to go forward would be to get her examined by a pediatrician first and get a couple of blood tests and repeat urine exam to specifically look for blood glucose levels, urine osmolarity, and also an abdominal ultrasound scan to look for anything inside the bladder, like a stone or if the bladder is just contracting too often.

Please consult her pediatrician and take this further, meanwhile you may write back to me with answers to my questions if you would like.

Wishing you both all the very best.
