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 moreSee 2 more doctor answers

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.

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
