From Mississippi, USA:

My four year old son recently started urinating quite frequently. He also drinks a lot of fluids, like juice, soda, and water. He sometimes complains about his leg being stiff or hurting. Do you think I should be concerned and have him checked for diabetes or do you think it is nothing to worry about?


You should call your child's doctor immediately and have him checked for diabetes.
