Urinary frequency describes the number of times a person needs to urinate in a day. It is also called as polyuria. In general, polyuria is a symptom that indicates dehydration, diabetes mellitus or urinary tract infection. The symptom can be managed and prevented with proper diet and lifestyle changes.

Urinary frequency describes urine production by the kidneys. The kidneys have two main ways to produce urine: bidirectional and parallel. Bidirectional urine production refers to the sort of urine that is produced when a person takes a sip of water or because of any urinary tract blockage. The kidneys use gravity to force the urine from the bladder. The urine is released and travels through the ureters. It then travels down the penis and out of the penis via the prostate. Parallel urine is produced by the kidneys during voiding.

Bidirectional vs parallel urine production leads to the formation of two separate types of kidney stones using only one mechanism where water and non-water cells combine.

The male urogenital system has two levels called kidneys.

The lower urinary tract (or tailbones as some refer to the bones of the lower urinary tract) collects urine below the prostate. This is where female reproductive organs reside along with passing urine out through the vagina.

The kidneys filter out any substances that aren’t good for the kidneys.

Many of the exploratory and supportive medical exams across the globe are conducted on the same site, namely the lower urinary tract. It is the first thing that is checked in a medical or surgical setting, prior to the diagnosis being made.

Urinary Frequency

Unlike the upper urinary tract, nothing further needs to be done on the area just located on the prostate. The area is recommended to be left alone and if need be, drained periodically if the symptoms getting worse. This is also called the fundamentals of care.

Here are the parts of the urinary tract.

Bilodejar Spinal Flap: The bile duct connects the spine to the liver, spleen, small intestine and rectum. It is part of the sphincter system. Bilocatejar means “to tie up or clump up”.

The sphincter or sphincter muscle relaxes when there is stress if it is blocked or not. This is due to the fact that the sphincter muscle along with the entire posterior portion of the urinary tract is highly innervated. This means that pain and inflammation in the surrounding tissues can trigger contractions of the sphincter and this contributes to kidney stones forming.

The prostate is a muscular organ the size of a small walnut located where the ascending colon and the urethra meet. Its purpose is to only allow the urine to leave the body via the ureters into the bladder. It is surrounded by specialized glands that produce and secrete prostatic fluid.

Ovaries are located in two locations; the head and the body.


For athletes relying on sports drinks or gels to prevent performance loss, urea and blood-sodium levels have a significant impact on hydration. These electrolyte-replacing drinks are very popular for taking during endurance training. It’s not uncommon for you to consume between 2–4 litres (roughly 120–160g) of sports drinks per day. A 2.4% level of urea in the blood is considered mild, while the normal range is 6–9%. KickStart is an example of a product sold to professionals in the sports nutrition field. Each bottle contains roughly 7.5 ounces (roughly 260–480 ml) of fluid.

While these products are marketed as ways to maintain hydration levels to support performance, this new awareness is usually marketed as an “all-out” effort to avoid training painful or potentially fatal muscle cramps. This “push” to abstain from training highlights a tendency, and is one reason, to consume excessive amounts of drinks to support general wellness.

This problem could become more prevalent with the unprecedented popularity of intermittent fasting. Individuals who have joined the “fasted,” typically 15–21-hour, 100-calorie-a-day club, seem to have “urinary frequency” on the rise. While urine appearance, colour, consistency and content are normal, these sporadic notes could be an early sign of sodium overhydration.

Eating small meals is not recommended during fasting or a weight-loss strategy. However, small doable meals can substantially increase it.


Athletic performance is a function of “energy availability”. Meaning, the quantity and quality of energy you consume correlates with performance outputs.

Eating a meal high in complex carbohydrates, but low in simple carbs, paired with a massage, juice and a hit of espresso can enhance energy availability without stressing the kidneys. The body retains protein to maximize the utilization of carbohydrates saved for future performances.

Foods like bananas, potatoes, whole grains, peanut butter, riboflavin-rich foods, eggs, sausages, beans, etc., are items that may help raise blood-sodium levels if consumed of their own accord. Fruits, vegetables, dairy products and fortified cereals could be prescribed to athletes as well.

Balancing the intake of calories with water helps kidneys properly absorb fluids and electrolytes. Sugar alcohols (sugar-free or virtually-free), aspartame, sucralose and others are virtually tasteless and undetectable to the human taste buds and cause no gastric distress, discomfort in the stomach, frequent urination or discomfort in the digestive tract.

Research shows adding a very small amount of these ingredients to the drinking water can minimally impact blood-sodium levels.

In a study published in October 2020 in the journal European Urology, researchers define urinary frequency as follows:

Urine Frequency Ranges

Urine frequency ranges from less than once a day to as often as 4 cups every day.

  1. An estimate of the global burden of urogenital diseases, highlighting higher rates of infertility, prepubertal exposure, and chronic conditions.
  2. Assessed using standard methods, from World Health Organization and National Institutes of Health.

Due to its concurrence with nutrient deficiencies, low bone density, diabetes mellitus and high blood pressure, urogenital problems are the third most common cause of death worldwide. They were responsible for 4.4%. The second leading cause of preventable deaths worldwide was lung cancer.

Fibroids are an inner fold of the bowel wall that protrudes into the colon. Increasing numbers of these complications occur when the diet is not varied and lifestyle is not in accordance with the body’s yearnings for optimal function. They affect males more than females.

Bacterial overgrowth affects the walls of the small intestine which makes it difficult for food to pass from the stomach to the intestines.

Inflammation of the colon walls, also known as Crohns, can block the passage of food, inducing vomiting and diarrhoea. It affects both men and women at different rates. The condition affects 47.4% of men and 50.3% of women, among the highest worldwide rates.

Around 80% of adults with acne are also affected by iron deficiency anaemia, with an estimated 27 million people in the world affected annually.

Symptoms of iron deficiency anaemia commonly show up as pain in your lower belly area. Other symptoms of iron deficiency anaemia are:

Iron Deficiency Anaemia

Take heed of the symptoms of iron deficiency anaemia, while taking steps to fortify your diet. The recommended dietary allowance is 1500 milligrams a day.

Studies show that eating a diet high in saturated fats and cholesterol from animal products increases the chance of developing colon cancer, with a 20 to 40% increased risk for early death.

It is important to highlight that colon cancer does not have a single cause. As with every other type of cancer, a person’s lifestyle is a major cause. Whenever we suffer any type of cancer, rather than eliminating saturated fats and cholesterol from our diets, it is better to consume them in moderation on a regular basis and focus on other lifestyle factors.

Cigarette smoke increases the risk of colon cancer by 23%. The effect is more pronounced in men but still present in women.

Eating a diet rich in saturated fats and cholesterol is also associated with an increased risk of developing diabetes mellitus.
