Needs testing: Beer, wine and other alcoholic beverages, as well as caffeinated sodas, actually cause you to urinate out more fluid than you took in, because both alcohol and caffeine have diuretic effects. The most common reason for increased urination is diabetes, but there are other causes as well. You need to see your physician for a check-up, together with a urinalysis-and maybe further testing if needed.

See your doctor. : Check with your doctor who can take a complete history and exam. Medications, caffeine intake, diabetes, prostate disease and others are potential considerations. A doctor who can see you and order appropriate labs and studies can help sort this out. All the best.
