Lately I have frequent urination with pale to clear urine? Is this a sign of kidney problem? I'm experiencing it when its cold in the office.

See doctor for: frequent urination if there's pain or fever present, or burning with urination, over color. The color is normal. If you see blood or clots present, that's a real problem emerging! Cold temperature itself, being nervous, can stimulate more frequent peeing that has nothing to do with having a urinary tract infection. So ask your doctor for sure what's going on in your case. Good luck! ...Read more

If you're taking in over 2 quarts of fluids and putting out almost as much urine daily, you may be diluting your serum sodium and your kidney function is not the problem. If you have low urinary output you have small bladder ...Read more

Kidney Transplant (Definition)

Kidneys anatomically require connection to an artery for blood supply, a vein for blood drainage and the bladder for urine outflow. In a transplant a healthy kidney is disconnected from its usual attachments and moved to a new location with those 3 requirements (artery, vein, bladder). This may be an auto-txp - somewhere else in your own body; or an allo-txp -from ...Read more
