If you're voiding large amounts of urine each time you might be drinking too many fluids&try omitting all fluids after supper. An endocrinologist could check you for diabetes insipidus , a hormonal disorder involving the pituitary gland.Excessive thirst is also a feature. If you're passing only tiny amounts of urine each time try omitting caffeine & alcohol.Check for a sleep disorder also.
