What exactly is nocturnal polyuria?

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

Why does hypertension cause polyuria?

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

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.

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

Can polyuria due to diabetes be just nocturnal and/or only after pooping?

Can polyuria due to diabetes be just nocturnal and/or only after pooping?

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

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
