Even though it may not seem much important, but the number of times you pee actually determines how hydrated you are.
The assistant professor of urology at the Mount Sinai’s Hospital’s NYC, Dr. Neil Grafstein explains about the urine related questions.
As a matter of fact, if we drink too much water, we pee more often. In addition to that, if we consume alcohol, coffee or some other bladder irritants, it is expected to go to the bathroom more often. Some people have more sensitive bladders and in other words that mean that they have the urge to pee at the slightest urge. On the other hand, some people can hold their pee until their bladders are about to burst.
CAN WE PEE TOO OFTEN?
According to experts, that is possible. Namely, if you pee more than 11 times daily, and if you drink 2 liters of fluid, this could indicate certain problem with pee frequency. At some people, too often visit of the toilet is resulted by overactive bladder, which probably is contracting more than it is necessary. The result of this is feeling the urge to pee too many times.
As Dr. Grafstein explains, people can train their bladder. The condition is that people actually don’t have incontinence problems.
