Just polyuria without any other symptoms and tests are all within normal limits you need not worry. This is a temporary phenomena which will be corrected by time. Sometimes polyuria can be due to phobia (school) scared of somebody, in cold weather etc. All this is temporary phenomena which will be corrected.

Causes and Symptoms of Urinary Tract Infection

Infection caused in the kidneys, bladder, urethra or the ureters is known as urinary tract infection. According to doctors, women are generally more at risk of suffering from this condition than men. Some of the causes which contribute to the development of this infection are:

1. Invasion of bacteria: like any other infection, one of the causes of urinary tract infection is the invasion of the bacteria escherichia coli in the bladder. This type of bacteria is most commonly found in the gastrointestinal tract and is most often held responsible for urinary tract infection.

2. Spreading of the bacteria from anus to urethra: the spread of the gastrointestinal bacteria from the anus to the urethra leads to the infection of the urethra thereby causing urinary tract infection.

Some of the symptoms of urinary tract infection are

1. A nagging urge to urinate: one of the most predominant symptoms of urinary tract infection is a persistent, nagging urge to urinate. You would know your urinary tract is infected when you feel the urgency to urinate extremely frequently.

2. There is a burning sensation when you urinate: the symptoms of urinary infection are extremely visible and are felt intensely by the one suffering from it. If you feel a burning sensation while urinating, chances are extremely high that you are suffering from urinary tract infection.

3. Red colored urine: sometimes your urine may contain perceptible amount of blood in them. In most cases, presence of blood in urine is a definite sign of urinary tract infection.

4. Foul smelled urine: an internal infection in the urinary tract manifests itself in different ways. One of the chief symptoms of this infection is discharging foul smelling urine.

5. Pain in the pelvic area: women who suffer from urinary tract infection experience excruciating pain near the pelvic area, sometimes extending to the pubic bone.

Dear user with the limited amount of information provided it appears that you are having problems while passing urine because of some sort of obstruction in the outflow tract which indirectly is causing the symptoms of urgency of passing stools. In your case it is advisable if you can meet a urologist in person so that he can thoroughly examine you. You may need a few test and investigations for further evaluation of your condition. Hope this solves your query. Anything more then feel free to revert.

Undice is a yellowish discoloration of the skin, mucous membranes and of the white of the eyes caused by elevated levels of the chemical bilirubin in the blood (hyperbilirubinemia). The term jaundice is derived from the french word jaune, which means yellow. Jaundice is not a disease per se, but rather a visible sign of an underlying disease process. Jaundice is typically seen when the level of bilirubin in the blood exceeds 2.5-3 mg/dl (milligrams per deciliter).

Its quite normal, in winters we tend to drink less amount of water n our body demands more. If keep warm water aside n drink it, if even after this you feel burning n yellow urine continues then consult a doctor.

Mr. lybrate-user, Please understand that long standing diabetes even with very good glycemic control, does lead to kidney damage. Further if a patient has consistent hyperglycemia (high blood glucose over the years) then damage more severe. One of the indicators of reduced kidney function is increased creatinine level. Apart from diabetes persistent high blood pressure also adds to kidney damage. Plus she has very low hemoglobin, that again puts stress on heart. In such a situation only local expert clinicians can help. Because patient needs constant monitoring. If she is not on insulin then it is essential that she is shifted on to insulin. Properly planned diet should be given avoiding high protein intake. Very regular blood glucose monitoring is also required. So please consult a good competent physician. Surat has really good doctors. Thanks.

There are no medical tips for correct procedure for urination by girls. The only thing to be observed or be careful about is to prevent contamination and infection of urethra by pot or by anal bacteria while washing. Female urethra is small and more vulnerable to UTIs as compared to males. It is always advisable to pause for a moment while commencing to urinate but doing it in pauses is not advisable. Do it slowly with control as fast urination may cause injury to urethra. Never hold urine for very long times. Do regular pelvic exercises to prevent incontinence in old age.

I am 24 years old. Last month I got to know that I don't have my right kidney and left one has a swelling. But I don't feel any problem with myself and I am fit. My GFR reading is 94ml/min. Doing pyeloplasty operation at this point of time is necessary or I can avoid for now? I was about to join my 1st ship in merchant navy when I got to know this. Please help.

Hi, your gfr is very good for a single kidney. Did you have any pain or urine infection? if you can share the ultrasound report, I will be in a better position to guide you. Otherwise, since the ultrasound shows hydronephrosis, next step is to get a dtpa scan (with f-15 protocol) done. It is done in nuclear imaging centers. It will show whether the swelling is really dangerous to kidney or not. If dtpa scan show obstruction, then its better to undergo pyeloplasty. Since you are asymptomatic with good gfr, I feel that your dtpa will be normal and you may not need pyeloplasty. However, since you have a single kidney with swelling further evaluation in the form of dtpa scan is a must. Wish you good health,

It could be because of weak pelvic muscles or lax bladder. Start doing Kegel Exercises and revert for detailed assessment and management.
