Check the blood sugar level and urine analysis to rule out diabetes and urinary tract infection. Drink water only when thirst is there. Do kiegel exercise. Symptomatic homoeopathic treatment for 5 days can clear the problem. Nothing to worry.

Whether aged persons should restrict the water intake to the minimum required level to reduce the load to the kidney?

Felllow in Endourology, MCh Urology, MRCS, MS, MBBS
Urologist,
Whether aged persons should restrict the water intake to the minimum required level to reduce the load to the kidney?
Water intake should be decided by your thirst level. Brain knows how much water it needs. There are mechanisms to detect how much is the water level (osmolality) in the blood and indicate you by means of thirst. Unless you are taking some drugs that can impair this ability, any kidney disease, heart problems, or brain disorders, you can take a normal 2 to 3 liters of fluid per day. You can reduce fluid intake in evening and night to prevent unnecessary sleep disturbance.

When the kidney stone block the path of urine in kidney or ureter then the urine flows back to kidney & it is called hydronephrosis. It is definitely curable. If it is not cured on time then it may lead to kidney failure. Kidney stone operations do not cause hydronephrosis.

This could be more of a mind set though drinking water/ liquids can increase your urine output it can show its effects at various timings I don't think you have any abnormal symptom it is very common so relax and take off your mind from this problem it is definitely not a disease.

Dear , just get urine tested. If it shows more than 5 pus cells then you have infection for which you have to take antibiotic for 15 days and chek urine again to see that pus cells have gone below 5. If infection persists or recurs then only get usg done. When you have usg then post it here along with pictures before repeating it.

Causes of Urine Incontinence

DGO, MBBS, Advanced Infertility
Gynaecologist, Delhi
Causes of Urine Incontinence

Urine incontinence is a condition that can be caused by one's everyday habits, side effects to medication, or any other long-term physical ailments. A thorough check-up by your doctor can help in getting to the root cause of this condition.

Certain beverages, medicines and foods can act as diuretics. This leads to bloating in your bladder and an increase in the volume of your urine. They include the following:

  1. Liquor
  2. Caffeine
  3. Decaffeinated tea or coffee
  4. Aerated drinks
  5. Artificial sweeteners
  6. Corn syrup
  7. Drinks that contain high doses of artificial flavours, sugar or acid, particularly citrus based beverages
  8. Heart medicines, narcotics, and muscle relaxants
  9. Extensive intake of vitamins B or C
  10. Urinary tract infection (UIT)
  11. Constipation

Other causes:

Urinary incontinence can also be caused by the following:

  1. Pregnancy: Hormonal changes and increasedweight of the uterus can cause stress incontinence (Learn more about healthy pregnancy).
  2. Childbirth: Delivery can weaken the muscles required for bladder control. It damages the bladder nerves and steady tissue. With prolapse, the uterus, bladder, or the intestine can be pushed down from their usual position and might even protrude into the vagina.
  3. Changes developed with age: Maturing of the bladder muscle can weaken the bladder's ability to store urine.
  4. Menopause: After menopause,women deliver less estrogen. Disintegration of these tissues can cause incontinence.
  5. Hysterectomy: In women, the same muscles and tendons support the bladder and uterus. Any surgery that removes the uterus may harm the supporting muscles, which can prompt incontinence.
  6. Expanded prostate: Particularly in older men, incontinence usually occurs from growth of the prostate organ, a condition known as considerate prostatic hyperplasia.
  7. Prostate cancer: In men, stress incontinence or urge incontinence can be connected with an untreated prostate disease. Incontinence is a reaction to medicines prescribed for prostate growth.
  8. Obstruction: A tumour in your urinary tract can disrupt the typical stream of urine, prompting flood incontinence. Urinary stones at times cause leakage of urine.
  9. Neurological disorders: Various sclerosis, Parkinson's illness, stroke, a mind tumour or a spinal damage can meddle with the nerve signals. These are important in keeping control of the bladder.

Your specialist may suggest the following:

  1. Bladder control: You may begin by attempting to hold off for 10 minutes each time you feel a desire to urinate. The objective is to extend the time between visits to the toilet until you start urinating in two to three hour intervals.
  2. Two-fold voiding: Twofold voiding implies urinating, then holding it for a couple of minutes and attempting once more. This exercise can help in leveraging better control in the long run.
  3. Fixed toilet time: You may attempt to urinate every two to four hours instead of sitting tight when the need arises.
  4. Liquid intake and diet: You may need to stay away from liquor, caffeine or acidic foods. Also, the fluid intake may have to be reduced in such cases.
