Diabetes can emerge quickly in childhood and present with frequent urination. At your age that would be near the bottom of the list if causes I would expect. Discuss this with your doc. A simple office urine dipstick can often exclude diabetes mellites and likely point to another urinary issue as the cause.

Agree with Dr. Ferguson. For you to be concerned about diabetes, you would also be experiencing increased appetite and weight loss. Visit this site for info: https://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/diabetes/symptoms-causes/syc-20371444
