Frequent uination: There are many causes for frequent urination. Urinalysis in this issue should be a 24 hour urine collection with a substantial list - 5 or 6 laboratory studies - must be obtained. The lab studies can all be done on a 24 hour urine.

Stress (Definition)

Stress affects most people in some way. Acute (sudden, short-term) stress leads to rapid changes throughout the body. Almost all body systems (the heart and blood vessels, immune system, lungs, digestive system, sensory organs, and brain) gear up to meet perceived danger. These stress responses could prove beneficial in a critical, life-or-death situation. Over time, however, repeated stressful situations put a strain on the body that may contribute to physical and psychological problems. Chronic (long-term) stress can have real health consequences and should be addressed like any other health concern. Fortunately, research is showing that lifestyle changes and stress-reduction techniques can help people learn ...Read more

What are some reasons for cloudy urine?

What are some reasons for cloudy urine?

Many benign options: If asymptomatic the most probable explanation is urinary phosphates. They come out of solution when the urine is alkaline and look "cloudy" then later, when the urine is acidic again, the phosphates will be in solution and when you void, you won't see them. Other causes are yeast, urine bacterial infection, or more serious causes usually associated with symptoms.

Cloudy urine, is it dehydration?

Cloudy urine, is it dehydration?

Cloudy urine: Patients who are dehydrated excrete a concentrated urine that is not cloudy. If one's urine is cloudy and is seen with symptoms of burning and frequency, a urinary tract infection (UTI) may be present. See a physician and have a urine analysis, that will confirm dehydration and have your urine sent off for a culture that will confirm a UTI. Good luck.

Have cloudy urine, no smell, good color.?

Have cloudy urine, no smell, good color.?

Might be nothing: It could be nothing, but it could represent some protein in the urine. If it is fairly constant, you should see your doctor and have a urinalysis. Usually an infection will cause some burning and urgency to pee, but sometimes an infection can be without much in the way of symptoms, so get the urinalysis and maybe a culture to be sure.

Can I get cloudy urine due to being physically abused?

Least of worries: If you are being physically abused you need desperately to remove yourself from that situation before you are severely injured or killed, something which happens regularly. Cloudy urine is not likely to be due to your being abused. Please contact a local women's shelter and get yourself away from this situation.

My 2.5 female toddler has extremely cloudy urine. What may be the cause?

My 2.5 female toddler has extremely cloudy urine. What may be the cause?

Two basic issues: If urine is cloudy it means either it is very concentrated (kids not taking enough fluids) or there is something foreign in it (bladder infection) if she is fever free, the latter is less likely & you can push fluids or food with lots of fluid value like jello, applesauce to see if it improves over the weekend. If it continues into next week have her urine tested.

I am experiencing cloudy urine (quality: strong odor). I have IC could it be that?

I am experiencing cloudy urine (quality: strong odor). I have IC could it be that?

Unclear, but...: Before being diagnosed to have IC, I am sure you had been treated with antibiotics. If so, have antibiotics helped you improve UTI-related Sx - dysuria, frequency, & urgency, but bladder irritation still persists. Then you might have IC with superimposed UTI. So, go to be checked for sure. To put all related things together correctly, go to http://formefirst. Com/onDealSickness. Html. Best wish to..

Randomly keep gettin cloudy urine for almost over a month now. Discomfort comes with it. What could this be how to prevent it. Already did 1 wk of meds?

UTI: It is important that you have a urine culture to see if the cloudy urine is indeed due to infection. If symptoms persist with negative culture it may be advisable to see a urologist. Regardless, it is always a good idea to increase your water intake when urine becomes cloudy.

I am diabetic once I was told in a class that always watch out for cloudy urine I 4got what is means I been havin cloudy urine every day when I wakeup?

Proteinuria: In kidney disease, large protein losses in urine causes cloudy urine. That is what you are trying to remember, probably. However, you also could have other reasons like urine infection. Make sure your doc evaluates your urinalysis. Also, much intake of vegetables and dairy products (like milk shake) together, causes cloudy urine due to excretion of particulate undissolved phosphorus in urine.
