It may not be serious or it may be related to your kidney infections if, in fact, they were infections.

What diseases could be related with low urinary output, when creatinine, BUN and urine analysis including proteins and clearance are normal?Many thank

Generally, don't try to diagnose yourself or other with labs without sharing a clinical history. ...Read more

Staying hydrated: You probably began your experiment dehydrated. There are of course "insensible losses" or volume losses that can't be measured-- mostly this is from the humidified breath. That can amount to 0.5 L right there. You also lose water in the stool... You could account for that. Try the experiment when your urine is clear- when you are not mildly dehydrated. I think you will get better results. ...Read more
