The Number Of Times You Pee Can Tell A Lot About Your Health. Check It Now

Since we do it everyday, urination, a normal part of our everyday lives, can sometimes be overlooked. One thing that we may not know about it is that the number of times that we pee can say a lot about our health.

Within a 24-hour period, the normal frequency for urination is 6-8 times.[1] Some factors may affect the normal frequency of urination, such as drinking a lot of fluids, the type of fluids you consume, and some medications that you might be taking.[2]

Other than these factors, an increase in urination could be a sign of a health problem, such as a bladder infection, prostate problems, a heart condition, leg swelling, or a urinary tract infection.[3]

If you are finding that the frequency of your urination is more than what constitutes as normal (6-8 times a day) and it is affecting your lifestyle, go to a doctor for a consultation. Any health conditions resulting in frequent urination are always better off when treated early to avoid complications or infections spreading to other parts of the body.
