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?

Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

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

Most probably your urinary bladder may fail to empty properly due to weakness of 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 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.

The last but not least, I would advise 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 to follow my advice, get these two tests done, and send it back to me for proper evaluation and treatment of your problem.
