From Colchester, UK:
Is there any other condition which would show similar symptoms to diabetes mellitus in a 7 year old girl?
Symptoms of diabetes:
A full house of the above can really only be diabetes. However, many children habitually drink too much juice or milk and so pass a lot of urine. The difference is that they are otherwise totally healthy and, obviously, don't have sugar in their urine.
- Drinking too many fluids
- Passing excessive amounts of urine - including during the night
- Weight loss
There are also rare conditions like diabetes insipidus but again this is easily diagnosed.
If you are in any doubt then check it out!
