Frequent Urination: Infection or diabetes. Uncontrolled diabetes elevates both the blood and urine sugar level causing an increase in urine water to flush out the sugar. It is a sign of very poor health.

Diabetes: Poorly controlled diabetes can affect nerves to the bladder. Patients have trouble urinating and emptying their bladder completely. This causes frequent urination.
