My nearly 7yr old barely weighs 43lbs and he's not underweight at all. If you're concerned, go to the dr.

It isn't just peeing a lot, it's peeing like he has a bladder infection. And it's not just drinking a lot, it's drinking like he feels like he's going to die of thirst. If you don't want to go to the dr, you can get a test kit at Walmart for 10 bucks.

See I was concerned that my 4 year old may have it. You know excessive thirst, going to the bethroom every 5 minutes and he just seemed off...

So I did this magical thing and made a doctors appointment! :O

What do you know! They did tests! :O

Try it some time.

You just described my son sans the diabetes.  Immature bladder.

Does Type 1 or other immune disorders run in your family?  Do you not have a pediatrician who can run these tests?
