For some people, passing urine frequently is a routine part of life. In fact, you might not think it was a problem at all. Until you start missing out on sleep and social activities. The good news is that there are plenty of home remedies for frequent micturition. To help get you back on track.
This frequent need to use the available toilet facilities is a familiar problem to many people with multiple sclerosis. MS is known to cause many urinary problems.
I guess the best way to describe urine loss or frequent urination is experiencing a loss of volume in your pee.Pilar Lorca, a registered dietitian and foundation member based in Spain.
In other words, you start losing pee, and all of it, fairly quickly.
Here, Lorca recommends a few of her favourite natural weight-loss aids and tips for coping with pee-loss more comfortably:
Dehydration can make your pee heavier, so it takes more to pass.Pilar Lorca
Your body also converts a lot of fat into pee. So this would mean that your dietary habits are very important for successfully losing weight. Aim for a ratio of at least 10% calories coming from fat and 20% from carbs.Oilar Lorca

If your issue is more frequent micturition. You may have a diuresis, or waking urination that you can’t seem to stop.
Diuresis affects 15–30% of people of normal weight.Heather Milton, a registered dietitian and certified personal trainer based in Dallas.
According to the Mayo Clinic. It could be caused by low potassium levels, kidney stones, or inflammation caused by chronic infections or cramping.
Beware of overdoing it with diuretics (used to treat things like high blood pressure), Milton warns. While some diuretics can possibly help milder forms of hypertension, overusing them can have other, more serious consequences.
If your issue is most common at night, trouble falling asleep could be to blame.
When you haven’t stopped peeing in the early hours of the morning, this is a problem.Heather Milton
Some of the urine still can be carried to the bathroom, but in larger amounts, you might start to lose the volume of the pee as well. Remember, you lose more volume in your pee with increased frequency.Heather Milton
A Useful Diagnostic Tool
Keep a food journal to track the course, and be sure to keep losing more liquid weight than grams of muscle. This can be a useful diagnostic tool, as high muscle mass (usually muscle-rich foods like eggs, cheese and tuna) will often result in less fluid loss, Milton says.
Hiring a trainer or even a few workouts to boost hydration and strength gains is one your best bets for offsetting the negative effects of fatigue.
I see people not having the energy they did early in the morning and in the evening.Heather Milton
They often tend to be drinking more water so they can fit it all in without feeling bloated, or in an attempt to not get tired so they don’t look like they need a nap.Milton
Here’s what you need to know about proper hydration and more at-home remedies for staying hydrated.
Water is the body’s liquid signal to utilize energy for optimal performance and cognition. So, if you can’t get a good night’s rest due to caffeine withdrawal, take a break and sip on a glass of water to rehydrate.
- Pointing to Bed
Many times when it comes to recovery, it’s important to transition to bed where you’re still getting some airflow, says Cassetty.
For people affected by premenstrual syndrome (PMS), getting in a sleep environment as soon as you wake up is essential for hormone balance and overall wellness. If you’re skipping bed for a pre-bed rest, it can be particularly challenging since you could be dehydrated, says Rieger.
For some, that can translate to going weeks without a glass of water.
Below, we’ve rounded up seven ideas perfect for when you want to reduce your frequent micturition or make up for lost time before bed.
All you need is a small pot, a bathroom scale and some toilet paper. To begin, pull out some toilet paper, more is better than less, then light the bowl of the pot lightly with a match so it’s burning well before you add the next piece. On top of that, you’ll want to add some water, preferably with a few more drops of pee. Just be careful not to add too many. You don’t want to make a big mess.
A must for any kid with a constant sleep problem
If you can’t fit a bowl and the level you need into your bathroom, you can also try placing a towel in the bowl. If the pee is hard, hold the back of the bowl against your chest, making sure whatever you place doesn’t come up less than half a foot. A sneeze will actually flush away most of the pee. Only keep it up for as long as the toilet paper lasts.
Giving urine away is ineffective, you’ll still need to rinse it out after.
Talk to your doctor if you have kidney or blood problems and need to avoid certain medications while you’re on treatment. While you may not drop anywhere near a human substance during your especially wet dream, you’ll ingest even more if you pass in your sleep. High blood pressure, stroke and heart problems could all result from dehydration, so it’s important to watch your fluid intake.
As with any home remedy, your best bet is to wear a mask while you have your nightly ritual.
Keep sleep to hand.
Sleep can be important to your overall health. In otherwise healthy people, sleep deprivation can prompt health problems like dehydration and high blood pressure. If you have trouble falling asleep, making time to sleep can be as important or even more important than getting some shut eye.
If habitual afternoon nappers or frequent night owls have been troubling you, consider including sleep time as part of your nighttime routine. Whether it’s a quick nap or a post-nap sleep session to help get into bed and rev up your metabolism, a good night’s sleep is good for your health.
By bundling your nighttime routine with exercise, you can maximize the available power you have for getting through the day.
