Child peeing constantly, uti clear, stomach pain. Concerned? What it could be?

Hi. My 5 year old daughter has been peeing constantly lately. I have taken her for urine test and all clear for uti . I received a phone call from her school to pick her up today as she had bad stomach pains. This was the first pain she has had since the constant peeing began about 2 months ago. I am concerned now that their is something wrong? Your opinion on where to go from here or what it could be? ( just thought I would add that she also had severe stomach pains for about 2 months in the middle of last year)

Welcome to health care magic
Dear patient, increaded frequency of urination can be due to many reasons like urinary tract infection, stones in urinary tract, diabetes, early stages of kidney failure, etc, you consult a doctor who will get tests done on her like USG whole abdomen, urine routine microscopy and culture sensitivity, blood sugar fasting, blood urea and serum critinine, X-RAY KUB etc and will find out the cause of her increased frequency of her micturation and abdominal pain and will treate her accordingly
wish her speedy recovery

Hello and welcome to Healthcaremagic.

Thank you for writing to us.

In my opinion, a 5 year old child having constant stomach pains could have multiple causes to this. It could be a urinary tract related problem, or a gastrointestinal problem.

First of all, please visit a doctor (pediatrician) for a physical examination. Palpation will be able to find any tenderness, if present. The next thing we could do is an abdominal and pelvic scan. This investigation will help in visualizing her abdomen and pelvis. Investigation is prime, as she is only a child and might not successfully describe her symptoms.

A repeat urine analysis and urine culture should help, some times a laboratory error rules out a UTI early than it should be.

In the meantime, please give her plenty of water; cranberry juice should also help to a certain extent.

If you have a family history of diabetes, checking her blood sugar levels will also contribute.

I hope I have succeeded in providing information that you were looking for. Please do write back to me for any further clarifications, I would be happy to help.

Best wishes.
