Frequent Urination is a medical condition in which males and females have the urge to urinate very often. Typically, frequent urination means urinating more than 8 to 10 times a day and waking up often at nights to urinate. Frequent Urination is a sign of other health issues.
HOW IS FREQUENT URINATION DIAGNOSED?
The health care provider will take a medical history and do a physical exam.
Tests that may be done include:
• Urine culture
• Cystometry (a measurement of the pressure within the bladder)
• Nervous system tests (for some urgency problems)
• Ultrasound (such as an abdominal ultrasound or a pelvic ultrasound)
HOW IS FREQUENT URINATION TREATED?
Treatment of this condition involves administering antibiotics in case there is an infection that is causing the condition. Kegel exercises can help too. Bladder training, monitoring food and fluid intake and changing diet are other ways to control the condition.
