🚽 Frequent Urination – 5 Causes & Best Solutions In 2024

If you have frequent urine problems, then today’s video is perfect for you. I’ll discuss the 5 primary causes and best solutions to help improve and hopefully fix this situation for you.

Please know that frequent urinary problems can definitely be a warning sign for much bigger health problems. So, please read to the end.

So let’s get started.

Frequent Urination Causes

Urinary Tract Infection (UTI)

Infections in any part of the urinary system can cause frequent urination. Symptoms may also include a burning sensation during urination, cloudy urine, and a strong urge to urinate.

Your doctor will do a simple test to see if you have a UTI or not.

SOLUTION: Luckily, the solution is a course of antibiotics, so that’s easy enough.

Diabetes (both Type 1 and Type 2)

High blood sugar levels can increase urination as the body tries to eliminate excess sugar.

In fact, I tend to urinate a lot and have my entire life, even as a child. I’ve always been thirsty, drinking lots of water and peeing a lot. And I remember that as a child, my pediatrician tested me for diabetes because frequent urinating is a warning sign.

Luckily, I don’t have diabetes and I think I just drink a lot of water.

Diabetes

SOLUTION: If you have diabetes or just have high blood sugar in general, an improved diet and proper medication can fix this. Mainly it’s a diet thing – managing your blood sugar and insulin levels by limiting high carb or sugar intake, processed foods, unhealthy fats, and similar foods.

You can also take specific supplements that will help promote healthy blood sugar levels, without negative drug side effects.

Please know that improving your blood sugar will improve EVERY aspect of your health, so make this a priority.

Prostate Problems

In men, conditions such as benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH), prostatitis, or prostate cancer can cause frequent urination in men, especially at night.

Aging and hormonal imbalances are the primary causes of prostate growth.

SOLUTION: Fixing your hormones is the first step. This means increasing your testosterone levels while lowering DHT and Estrogen levels. This will improve the size of your prostate and help reduce the risk of prostate cancer.

Some medications work, such as 5-alpha reductase inhibitors or blood flow-improving ones. Unfortunately, these drugs tend to cause erectile problems. So, I would use these drugs as a last resort.

However, there are natural ways to improve hormones and blood flow.

Frequent Urination & Aging

Another cause is aging because as we get older, we produce less anti-diuretic hormone (ADH), also known as vasopressin.

When we are younger, vasopressin is higher at night and thus, your body will help retain more water and fluids and thus, less urination at night. Unfortunately, as we get older, we produce less, and thus, we hold on to less water and hence, we urinate more often, especially at night.

SOLUTION: You can take drugs that increase ADH, but I would not recommend that. They can cause kidney problems and it’s not a good long-term solution.

However, the natural way of increasing your anti-diuretic hormone (ADH) is by increasing salt intake. So one trick is to consume more salt at night, to increase vasopressin and thus, you hold on to more water and will pee less in the middle of the night.

Lifestyle Factors That Cause Frequent Urination

Finally, there are a variety of lifestyle factors that can cause frequent urination. For example, consuming caffeinated or alcoholic beverages will increase urination.

Or, just consuming more liquids too late in the day, which is a problem that I tend to have.

You also need to optimize your electrolytes and thus, increase your salt intake IF you are going to consume more liquids.

However, another major lifestyle factor that most people don’t think about is stress. This is because stress can cause more adrenal production, and higher cortisol levels, leading to negative hormonal changes.

End result is high blood sugar which I explained earlier, causes frequent urination.

Stress, adrenaline and cortisol also increase blood pressure, which negatively affects your kidneys and thus, more urinary problems.

Stress also causes poor sleep, which REALLY messes up everything, including youth hormones such as growth hormone and testosterone. Both of which help you retain more fluid in the muscles.

SOLUTION: The hardest part in life, is improving and managing your stress levels – both physically and emotionally. We have way more stress these days and we are overwhelmed with information and thus, more stress.

Luckily, there are specific lifestyle changes to help manage stress levels. And, natural supplements to help promote healthy, youthful stress hormones quickly – since I know lifestyle improvements will take a lot more time and effort.

Summary

If you are urinating more often, now you know the biggest causes.

More importantly, I’ve listed the solutions as well. Now it’s up to you.

Are you going to be the many who just listen and don’t do anything?

Or are you going to be the few, who take action, and make improvements by implementing just 1 or 2 of the solutions I mentioned, so you can have a healthier, longer, and happier life?
