Does Frequency of Urination Increase or Decrease With CKDIf you have frequency of urination especially during night, you are not alone. Many patients with CKD (Chronic Kidney Disease) suffer from the same problem. Due to this kind of kidney disease, frequent urination will increase. If you are wondering why it happens and how to deal with that, you can find the answer in this article.

Why does frequent urination increase with chronic kidney disease?

Frequent urination can be a sign of urinary tract problem or kidney disease. This can be diagnosed by a test. Now, I will explain you why frequent urine occur with kidney disease. Renal tubules have the function of reabsorption, secretion, and excretion. With ischemia and anoxia of the kidneys, infection and toxins, the epithelial cells of renal tubule will be damaged. As a result,when the initial urine flows into renal tubules, the damaged cannot reabsorb it effectively, so frequent urine occurs.

Besides, high blood pressure and diabetes can also increase the frequency of urine and increase urinary output.

Medicine that patients with chronic kidney disease take, for example, aldosterone, diuretics, and natriuretic hormones can also stimulate renal tubules and cause damage.

Of course, frequent urination at night is not definitely related to kidney problems. The following are some conditions that need to be first ruled out.

1. Drinking large amount of water before sleep or drinking strong tea, coffee.

2. Mental factors such as high nervousness can cause frequent night urination, but usually the volume does not increase.

3. Cardiac insufficiency or endocrine disease such as chronic adrenal insufficiency can also cause frequent urinating at night.

To relieve this problem, you should find the real causes. As mentioned above, a routine urine test is necessary to be diagnosed. For those who have chronic kidney disease, they can take Chinese herbs to improve kidney function and repair the injured renal tubules.
