I drink and pee an egregious amount. Probably average around a liter an hour, sometimes more, sometimes less. Why? Is there a way to change this?

In brief: Have it checked out

There are some endocrinologic disorders that can lead one to drink a lot and then urinate a lot.
Diabetes mellitus which is related to improper glucose metabolism is very prevalent in our population and causes some of this symptoms. Diabetes insipidus which is caused by an inadequate pituitary hormone can also lead to these symptoms. Your doctor can investigate and treat if appropriate.
