Default Hamster Peeing a Lot?,or Not?

I have a dwarf hamster, he doesn't seem to go pee a lot but he sure sees to like digging in his potty sand and sometimes sleeping in it, but there are some rather large clumps of peed on sand, its like that everyday and recently the scent of his pee is getting stronger, I doubt it's Diabetes because I've had enough hamsters to know that dwarf's are prone to diabetes and have always tried to be careful in what I gave him. other than that, How often does a hamster pee, do they do it everyday? how much does a dwarf hamster pee in one day? anyone have answers? i worry a lot so I just want to make sure, also i dont notice him drinking too much.

How old is he? As they get older they pee more and that's why it smells more usually. Dwarf hamsters are prone to diabetes but usually the pee smells sweet and if he seems fine in himself I wouldn't worry too much. You can actually test the pee for glucose with ketodiastix you buy in the chemist. To do that you might need to leave the potty with no sand in for a day so there's some liquid urine to soak up in the test strip.
