How to treat large levels of glucose in urine?

I have a child of 5 who is incontinent at night and during the day seems to be producing large amounts of urine, has tested positive for large levels of glucose in his urine this has been reduced but still present. Diabetes has been ruled out urine analysis bar sugars has come back normal. Has had very little incontinence from the age of 2 till now?

Hi,

If diabetes has been ruled out, no need to worry much. This can happen temporarily following some stress like a febrile illness, starvation etc. As it is resolving now, we can wait. Only if it persists, we need further evaluation to rule out other conditions like kidney filtration abnormalities.

In new onset nocturnal incontinence, it is important to look for any cause (like urine infection, pin worm infestation, emotional stress in child, constipation). If no such causes found and there is no day time urinary symptoms (urgency, frequency, incontinence) there is no cause of concern. Avoid giving caffeinated items (tea, coffee, chocolates) after 4 p.m, restrict water intake after 6 pm and avoid sugary items. Keeping a dry night diary will promote him to be dry.

Take care. Hope I have answered your question. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Muhammed Aslam T. K., Pediatrician
