Hi,

Thanks for sharing your concern here.

His blood glucose levels are in normal range. Normal range varies between 70 to 130 mg/dl.

He may be having a urination.You can get his urine Routine and microscopic examination done to know if there is any abnormality. Please do not worry.

Hope this information will help you.

If you have any further query, I will be glad to answer that.

Thank you. I was worried because my grandmother was type 1. This has been ongoing for about 10 days. Sometimes it's ALOT others its a trickle and it's every one to two hours. He has no extreme thirst and full energy. I tested him with my mothers monitor three times yesterday and was unsure. My friend who is a nurse told me children under 6 usually have higher glucose readings than adults and can be perfectly normal. Just wanted to make sure. He has an appt this week.

I am sorry one final thing- he has had constipation problems this past month- could that cause an infection?

Hi,

Thanks for your input.

Your concern was justified, as you have positive family history of Diabetes I.

You have tested his urine for sugar and ketone which are negative. In a way constipation can irritate lower part of urinary tract and may cause frequency of urination. Please give him plenty of fluid, and if infection is detected proper treatment would cure him.
Avoid constipation and take care of his diet.

This should relieve your anxiety, and if you have anything else please let me know. Otherwise kindly rate my answer and close this discussion.

I am a 29 year old male and for the past couple of weeks I've been having issues when I urinate and it's starting to worry me. I constantly have to push, or strain, in order to urinate. If I don't push when attempting to urinate then my urine just trickles out or doesn't come out at all plus it takes a really long time for me to start urinating and when I finally do start to urinate for some reason it will stop then go then stop again. Also it feels like I was not able to empty my bladder completely. I'm also suffering from the constant urge to urinate and urinary frequency. It feels like I always have the urge to urinate. I have to get up and urinate 3 or 4 times at night. My urine looks a little darker than normal, but it's not cloudy nor does it smell. It kinda burns when I urinate. It's like an odd feeling. When I urinate I feel this burning, tingling, pins and needles sensation. I don't know how to explain it. All of these urinary issues that I'm having is driving me crazy. I never had a bladder or urinary tract infection before. I passed kidney stones about a year ago and they were small. I was wondering what might be the cause of all these urinary problems. Why do I have to strain all the time and why do I have this constant urge to urinate? Do I have a a UTI or some other type of infection?

Sharp intermittent right side groin pain. Lasts approx 2 secs. Started for first time 2 months ago. History kidney infection, and because of this scar tissue in right kidney with small calcifications. Also had urinary tract infection a month ago. Doesn't seem to be related to movement. Seems to becoming more regular and sharper. Can't feel any signs of hernia. Doctor thought it might be nerve related but I'm not sure, thinking it might beva kidney stone?
