Question Do I pee too much?? - February 1st 2010, 11:04 PM

Ok so recently, within the last month or so, I've noticed that I go to the toilet a hell of a lot, and I don't think I drink enough to merit it.

When I go to the toilet, it's with a properly full bladder, it doesn't hurt, it's not a funny colour, it's pale yellow, it doesn't smell. I can sleep through the night (if my boyfriends not with me), and don't wet the bed. If my bf is there, I tend to wake up, which prompts me to go to the loo.

I started noting down what I drink and when I pee.
For example, today I woke up at 8am, and went to the toilet first thing.
8:05am- mug of tea
10:30am- pee
12:15pm- pee
1pm- pee
1:15pm- teeny (I mean teeny) bit of milk on weetabix
2pm- pee
2-4pm- nap
4pm- pee
4:30pm- pint of orange squash
5:45pm- pee
6:15pm- pee
8pm- pee
9:30pm- pee
10pm- small glass of water
11:30pm- small pee, just cuz I was getting ready for bed and it's part of routine.

Now doesn't that look like a LOT of urine???? Relative to what I drink? Or am I being silly and just dead conscious of my urination...? Bearing in mind that my friends have commented on it.

I pee an awful lot as well. So much so I went to my doctors about it. He said this is a symptom of diabetes. I was tested for it and it turns out I don't have diabetes, but it may be worth getting yourself tested. Just mention it to your doctor on your next checkup

That does seem like a lot but then again, i typically go every 90-120 minutes during the day (especially if I drink a lot of water). So, at school, I'll typically go @:
8:00 am
10:00 am
12:35 pm
3:00 pm

So yeah. That's my two cents!

It's not all that much really, though get checked for diabetes just in case. It could be down to the cup of tea you have in the morning though, since tea is a diuretic (y)

I think that its due to weather as well as other factors. If you're not a person who sweats much as it is, in the winter months, that sweat from the summer months turns to pee.

Its a fact, everyone knows. I also think though that because you are so concious of it, it's making you pee more.

I did have the same problem and as Hannah already said, I was tested for diabetes, and the test came back negative.

I think sometimes It just happens. I suggest getting checked out at the doctors and if there's nothing wrong then it'll subside in a few weeks.

What a shame to have to beg you to
See we're not all the same, what a shame

You don't pee too much. It's normal to pee that much after taking in that amount of liquids. If you drank 1 pint of squash for one day, you'd notice less visits to the bathroom.

it does seem like you are peeing a lot even though it doesnt smell and it doesnt hurt and its not an abnormal color you should have a urine test done to see if its a urinary tract infection. i had one once without knowing it, and i went for weeks without knowing until i started to get extremly ill i had back and stomach pain severe extreme pain, i could hardly walk it was so bad. you dont want an infection to get that bad, but of course it was the lab technitains fault for not saying anything to someone until we were far away from our home we were across the state in eastern washington for a christan festival when they called us to tell us i had a urinary tract infection. so i suggest you get tested dear

I pee alot also. You just have a small bladder, that's all. You can try doing bladder exersizes or holding your pee for awhile, sometimes it helps make your bladder bigger and stronger.

I had the same problem, right now I pee a lot too. I think I have one again...

Turns out I had a bladder infection. You might have one too?
