thirsty

My son is complaining that he is always thirsty even at night. We had his urine tested by our local pharmacist and it came all clear, but we are still worried that it could be something else.

Hi there!

Excessive thirst could occur secondary to issues like dehydration, diabetes, hormonal/ endocrine issues, electrolyte imbalance, metabolic causes, renal issues etc. It might be a good idea to consider an initial evaluation by a primary care paediatrician initially and depending on the cause diagnosed/ suspected, it can be managed accordingly or specialist care may be sought.
Hope this is helpful.

Take care!
