Frequent Urination

It refers to an increase in urinary frequency, temporary or permanent, often even more than 10 times a day, with the elimination of small volumes of urine. At the base of this disorder there may be several causes that have in common the increase in the "responsiveness" of the bladder smooth muscle, which intensifies the frequency of the stimulus. Among the main causes of frequency phenomena: bacterial infections of the urinary tract, pregnancy, diabetes, prostatic hypertrophy, stroke, diuretic intake, interstitial cystitis, obesity, frequent radiation therapy, bladder cancer, prostate cancer, kidney stones, heart failure, hypertension, urinary incontinence due to bladder prolapse during menopause, bladder diverticulosis. The high etiological heterogeneity therefore presupposes a careful anamnesis before determining its exact cause. Therefore, some measures such as an adequate diet combined with the correct intake of fluids, together with some of the bladder rehabilitation exercises for the proper management of urination, can be useful allies of a competent specialist for the success of the prescribed therapy.
