“Inconvenient” urological issues were discussed on the air of the program “About the Most Important Thing” Alexander Myasnikov. And one of these is how many times a day you need to go to the toilet and what a decrease or increase in urination may indicate.
These are two extremes, the doctor noted. “If you go small less often, then you often go big. The balance of water in the body is very tightly tied. Or you don’t drink enough and have stopped going. But here it is important to look at the color of urine; it is easier for a man to do this, but it is more difficult for a woman because of the different anatomy, but it is still necessary. If the urine is light in color, then you are losing water elsewhere, most likely through diarrhea or something else. If you really don’t walk much, your urine should be dark-dark in color and concentrated. And then I’ll tell you that you need to drink more,” Myasnikov noted. Most often, this problem develops precisely because of a lack of fluid. It happens, of course, that the cause is kidney failure, but swelling and other symptoms appear there.
In addition, it is worth understanding what “rarely” means. Normally they say 2-3 times a day, 5 is also good.
There is another situation when frequent trips begin, including at night. “For men, we are, of course, talking about prostate hypertrophy here. Men aged 50+ will not escape this cup. To determine the problem, special questionnaires and scales are used. There may also be a suspicion of prostate cancer, it can manifest itself like this. This is a symptom of prostate pathology,” the doctor emphasized. Sometimes this can be a sign of other diseases – adrenal glands, kidneys, diabetes and others. But most often it is the prostate and its benign hyperplasia, the doctor emphasized.
Diabetics often experience cystitis and urinary tract infections. “Dysfunction of innervation makes it easier for bacteria to penetrate the genitourinary system without encountering resistance there. Caring for diabetics in this area is very important,” explained the doctor.
And the problem of frequent urination occurs when the functioning of the bladder receptors is disrupted. Here we can talk about non-infectious cystitis. “Normally, there is a sensor at the receptors for a certain stretch of the walls of the bladder, and when urine accumulates, it gives a signal. And for another person, this sensor is so misaligned that there is no urine there, but it is already beeping. And you can run at least 60 times a day, but nothing comes of it,” Myasnikov explained. Special treatment methods must be used here, including training and medications. But everything is strictly under the supervision of a doctor.
