Prompts To Drink Water Before Urinating?
Good evening My doctor wants to ask, is it true that we are more encouraged to drink first when we want to urinate than we drink after urinating? Thank you
Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
In the medical world there is no specific recommendation whether you should drink first before you urinate or urinate first and then drink. There are no particular negative health benefits or impacts if you urinate before drinking or vice versa.
Your kidneys will always work to filter blood and make urine (every hour, every minute, every second). The urine that has formed will be accommodated in the bladder and will be discarded when your bladder feels full (when a urinary sensation appears and you relax your muscles to pass urine). The water you just drink before you urinate also will not be immediately disposed of in the form of urine, so there is no effect whether you drink before or after you urinate.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
