My son seems to be having a lot of very wet diapers all of a sudden. Could this be a sign of diabetes? He is 2 years old and hasn't lost any weight.

2 doctors agree
In brief: Drink more,pee more
When i hear hoof beats, i think of horses not zebras.
More wetting does mean more fluid is passing through, but 2yo's often develop a drinking fetish, especially if it's sweet(juices are junk). The diabetic 2yo can quickly drop a pound a day & eats constantly at the same time.If u are concerned, let your dr do a urine test. If no sugar in the pee and the urine is dilute, gradually reduce the fluids.
