Polyuria is a condition where the body urinates more than usual and passes excessive or abnormally large amounts of urine each time one urinates. Medically, Polyuria is defined as the passage of more than three litres of urine a day compared to the normal daily urine output in adults of about one to two litres. It is one of the main symptoms of Type 1 and Type 2 Diabetes and can lead to severe dehydration. If left untreated, Polyuria can affect kidney function. Therefore we need to be aware of the condition and its natural solution. The most common sign of Polyuria is producing abnormally large volumes of urine at regular intervals throughout the day and even at night. It is usually accompanied by thirst and increased fluid intake – leading to compulsive water drinking. Nocturia or frequent urination at night is another sign. Associated general symptoms include weight loss, malaise, headache and shortness of breath. Polyuria is physiologically normal in some circumstances, such as during cold, at higher altitudes and after drinking large amounts of fluids. The most common cause of Polyuria in both adults and children is uncontrolled diabetes mellitus. Other causes include – excessive secretion of aldosterone hormone due to adrenal cortical tumor, primary polydipsia (excessive fluid drinking), Central Diabetes Insipidus and Nephrogenic Diabetes Insipidus. Polyuria may also be due to the effect of various chemical substances like diuretics, caffeine and alcohol. It may also occur during an onset of atrial fibrillation, after childbirth and post removal of any obstruction within the urinary tract.
