What is the medical diagnosis if you have ventricular hypertrophy, retinal hemorrhages and mild polyuria?
Excessive urination may bring confusion in its possible meaning for peeing too often in its frequency or too much in total daily urine volume. By AUA, peeing >8 times in 24 hrs is urinary frequency, though I do not agree to. Peeing often may be related with much urine excretion resulting from over drinking, poor renal ...Read more
Salt, swelling: I would worry about fluid accumulation during the day in the legs due to excess sodium intake and vascular insufficiency. During the day the venus blood has to fight gravity to get to the heart and so it takes more pressure to return and the water leaks out of the legs into the tissues. At night, no gravity, more return of blood to the heart with greater delivery to the kidneys-more urine output. ...Read more
Lots of overlap: Polyuria is more a symptom of diabetes (both mellitus & insipidus) as well as hypercalcemia than hypogonadism (low testosterone). Symptoms of low testosterone include but are not limited to depressed mood, loss of libido (sex drive), erectile dysfunction, increase in fat (despite proper eating), inability to gain muscle (despite exercise), weak bones, loss of zest for life, etc. ...Read more
Ployuria and high BP: The most common cause of polyuria (p) is uncontrolled diabetes. Other causes are diabetes insipidus either central or nephrogenic. I suspect that the person with hypertension (h) and p is taking a diuretic agent which causes one to excrete a lot of urine to control h. If the person you are referring to takes diuretics, that could be the cause of p. If not, the person should see a physician. ...Read more
Did they put you on a diuretic? such as furosemide (lasix) or Bumex? Sometimes with a CABG they need to use IV fluids and then get the fluid off.

No.: Polyuria is the production of large amounts of dilute urine & polydipsia is elevated fluid intake; usually due to fluid losses from polyuria. These are just symptoms of a disorder & several different disease processes can cause this, with diabetes a common & important one. Diabetes is diagnosed by testing blood sugar levels. Other more rare causes are diabetes insipidus & psychogenic polydipsia. ...Read more

Diabetic pt allready having polyuria so why given diuresis medicen? (having htn and diabetis mellitse)
Some nights (once in 10-15 nights) - I have to get up to urinate 2-4 times. Is it nocturnal polyuria (even if it is just once in a while)? Thanks.
Nocturia: Getting up at night to urinate is termed nocturia. If you have episodic nocturia that only occurs once every couple of weeks, it may be related to what and how much you are drinking prior to bedtime. Anything with alcohol or caffeine can cause you to void more. In addition, a large amount of fluid can do this. If bothersome, talk to your doctor who might want to get some blood/urine tests. ...Read more
No: Polyuria in diabetes is due to high glucose levels. High glucose induces thirst and high intake of fluid leads to increased urine output in otherwise normal kidneys. The high glucose also is filtered into the urine and exceeds the ability of the kidney to resorb the total amount of glucose. The excess glucose in the forming urine acts as a diuretic preventing retention of fluid from the urine. ...Read more

I read somewhere that chronic renal failure can present with polyuria. Then how is it that acute renal failure is the opposite?
Some types of acute renal insufficiency resolve with a large amount of urine production as the kidney regains some normal function.
Some types of chronic renal insufficiency involve loss of protein or electrolytes and large amounts of urine production can result.
Both acute and chronic renal insufficency have types where little or no urine is made. ...Read more

Lose wt & exercise: You may or may not be pre-diabetic depending on the accuracy of the fasting blood sugar. In any case, you can improve your chances of good health by losing 5-10% of weight, if your BMI is above 22 or so. You may need to lose more if you are even slightly overweight. Start exercising at least 150 minutes/week. Gradually increase the intensity of exercise. ...Read more
What can be bad things besides embarassment with polyuria? Does too much urinating mean my body is loosing vitamins or not getting enouph?
May be normal: The amount of urine that is produced may or may not have anything to do with kidney function. If you drink a lot of fluids, then naturally you will urinate more. On the other hand, polyuria may indicate some kidney abnormalities particularly in the way the kidney is handling fluids. Generally, polyuria does not result in the loss of nutrients such as vitamins or proteins. ...Read more

Lupus affects kidney: Lupus is an auto-immune disease that may have effects on almost all the body systems. It is well-known to affect the kidneys, which could then lead to changes in blood pressure (which would cause the dizziness), and the changes in urination.
