Hello doctor,

I urinate 13 times a day. Will it have any negative impact on my health? What is the normal urine frequency?



Welcome to icliniq.com.

The frequency of passing urine sometimes depends on the amount of fluids you are taking in a day. How much fluids are you taking in a day? If your intake of water or any other liquids is high most likely you will pass urine quite often which shows that your kidneys are working well. However, if you have pain while passing urine or if you pass urine frequently without taking a lot of fluids then most likely you have an infection of the urinary tract or diabetes. In both cases, you need laboratory tests to rule out urinary tract infection or diabetes. Hope this helps you. Thanks and take care.
