Patient's Query

Hello doctor,

I urinate a lot, almost 32 times a day. When I urinate and come back, after a while, I can feel some urine passes my urinary tract, and I have to urinate again. Can you prescribe some tablets?

Answered by Dr. Amit Kumar

Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

We call this as urinary incontinence in medical language. There are so many possibilities that can be responsible for this.

Most probably your urinary bladder may fail to empty properly due to weakness of the bladder muscle. For this condition, you have to get a USG (ultrasonography) done, where I want the detail about post-void residual volume. It means an ultrasonologist will take a scan one before urinating and another after passing the urine in which he will mention the volume of post-void residual urine (PVU). If the volume retention is moderate, then we have to strengthen your pelvic floor muscle with some exercise, and believe me it gives an excellent result and I had treated so many patients with that exercise.

Another possibility is decreased blood concentration of ADH (anti-diuretic hormones) which is, responsible for concentrating the urine, and lack of this hormone is responsible for frequent urination.

Last but not least, I would advise you to get your blood sugar level done (both- fasting and two hours after a meal). As you know, without knowing the cause, nobody can prescribe you the medicine as it can be dangerous for you. So I will suggest you follow my advice, get these two tests done, and send it back to me for proper evaluation and treatment of your problem.

Same symptoms don't mean you have the same problem. Consult a doctor now!
