Urinating is one of the ways the human body excrete waste and as human, we urinate daily. But in as much as urinating is very much necessary and it is something we do daily, too much of it could be a warning sign of an ailment.
In this article, we'll be looking at some of the common reasons why you pee more often than you used to. Please read till the end.
Peeing often might not necessarily be a sign of a health condition, it could be something else. Check out some of the causes for constant urination here:
1. You drink too much water
It may seem obvious, but too much water will make you pee more. That could lower the salt in your blood to unhealthy levels. Drink enough to keep your urine clear or light yellow, but not so much that you spend all day in the bathroom.
2. Urinary Tract Infection
It’s the most common cause of frequent peeing. Bacteria infect your kidneys, bladder, or the tubes that connect them and the outside world. Your bladder swells and can’t hold as much urine, which may be cloudy, bloody, or strange-smelling. In this case, your doctor will likely prescribe antibiotics to get rid of the infection.
3. You might have Diabetes Miletus
Both type 1 and type 2 raise your blood sugar. Your kidneys try to filter it out, but they can’t always keep up. So the sugar ends up in your urine. The frequent urge to go is one of the first and most common signs of diabetes.
4. Kidney stone
Minerals and salts can form tiny rocks in your kidney. You usually feel like you have to go often but don’t make much pee. The stones might come out on their own, or you might need surgery.
It sometimes damages nerves that control your bladder. You may want to go more often, but you may not pee much Your doctor can help you change your diet and bathroom habits to lessen symptoms.
You may need medication or surgery in serious cases just talk to your doctor if you suddenly start to pee more than usual and you become uncomfortable at any point.
