Brief Answer:
Need to do proper blood sugar test

Detailed Answer:

Thanks for query ,Based on the facts that you have posted you have frequency for urination .

I shall be happy if you can post me few more details to help me in making comments on your problem.
1) Do you have other urinary symptoms like burning ,urgency,etc ?
2) Are your either of your parents diabetic?

The cause of frequency could be either due to Diabetes or UTI .

You need to get your blood sugar test done on empty stomach and 2 hours after lunch to confirm or rule out diabetes

Please get your routine urine test and urine culture done to find out any organisms This will help us to rule out UTI.

In the mean while take Tab Norfloxacin twice daily .

Further treatment will depnd uponthe results of these tests.

Hope I have answered your query ,please feel free to ask if you have more questions , I shall be happy to help you.
Thanks and Regards.
