Pediatrician, Pulmonology 's  Response
Hi,

I think the possibilities which need to be considered here are -

1. Pollakiuria.
2. Renal tubular acidosis.
3. Diabetes insipidus.

I suggest you discuss these possibilities with the kid's pediatrician please.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care

Regards,
Dr Sumanth Amperayani, Pediatrician, Pulmonology
