Likely behavioral.: A standard urine exam would include tests for infection as well as for glucose, which would be a sign of diabetes. If your child has been checked X 3 and is also able to stay dry at night, it is unlikely to be related to a physical problem. Are there emotional stressors? You may want to try timed voidings, setting the timer for her to go the BR in 1 hour and rewarding her staying dry, etc
