Diseases Caused By Frequent Urination?
Hello, I want to ask is it true that if we often hold urine when sleeping at night can cause kidney disease? please explain, thank you ..
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
The habit of holding back urination (whenever, not only at night) can make the urine settle in the bladder. As is known, in this urine contains the remaining metabolites and feces that should be removed from the body. If the rest of these metabolites and feces settle in the bladder, infection can occur. Not only that, this urine deposits can also harden into sand and stones which can injure the urinary tract. Both infections and stones in the bladder can later go up to the kidneys. If the infection or stone has reached the kidney, then this condition deserves immediate treatment because it has the potential to cause serious complications such as kidney failure, and can even lead to death.
However, you also need to know, that there are many types of diseases that can affect the kidneys. Not all kidney disease is related to the habit of holding back urination. There are also kidney diseases that occur due to other causes, for example disorders of immunity, malignancy, inflammation, or complications from other diseases, for example diabetes, hypertension, and so on.
In order to prevent kidney disease, you should avoid the habit of holding back urination. Keep your genitals clean, drink more water, and maintain your immune system by discipline to live a healthy lifestyle.
That's all our explanation. For more details, please consult directly with your doctor or internist.
Hope this helps ...
