If your blood sugar is not raised diabetes is unlikely but you go for complte urine examination to look urine for sugar. Another possibility is diabetes insipidus in which excessive thirst and excessive urination are common . Consult your doctor and go for relevant evaluation

Pediatrician Dr. Y V Siva Sankara Murty's  Response

thanks for writing to health care magic

how is your appetite like

exessive thirst, increased appetite and excessive urination could be features of diabetes

so you need to get a repeat blood sugar and urine sugar levels to confirm or rule out the diagnosis

so get these investigations done and revert back

thanking you

take care
