Do you go to the toilet often? Do you wake up at night to urinate? Do you feel like you urinate more than usual, even though you are not drinking more fluids? – You may suffer from frequent urination, leading to severe problems in your personal life and beyond. The elimination of more than 3 liters of urine per day is called polyuria. Most often, polyuria can be treated.
Treatment of frequent urination begins with prevention and help from treatments such as the UFE procedure Denver clinics offer. Here is what you can do at home before you go to the doctor:
- Avoid drinks or foods that may increase the likelihood of urinating more often: alcohol, citrus juice, coffee, tomatoes, melons, cucumbers.
- Give up foods that irritate the bladder: caffeine, carbonated beverages, chocolate, spicy foods. Alternatively, you can eat foods rich in fiber to prevent constipation because it aggravates the symptoms of overactive bladder syndrome.
- Do not hesitate to practice Kegel exercises because they help to deeply strengthen the muscles that support the bladder and pelvic organs.
You should see a urologist when you experience any of the following symptoms: haematuria (blood in the urine), changes in consciousness, sudden changes in behavior (confusion, delirium, lethargy, hallucinations), fever greater than 38.5 degrees, severe abdominal pain, in the back or on the sides of the body, difficulty urinating; the urgent need to urinate frequently or the loss of voluntary control of the bladder.
