The Effect Of Drinking Coffee?
Good afternoon doctor
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Frequent urination (BAK), or in the medical realm it is called polyuria, can be a very disturbing complaint, especially when it occurs at night while sleeping, or when the patient is having a lot of activities. In most cases, this condition is actually dangerous. Moreover, if the volume of urine produced is still relatively reasonable, which is between 2 and 2.5 liters per day.
Both caffeine (which is found in coffee and tea) and alcohol are known to trigger polyuria. This effect is produced by increasing the glomerular filtration rate due to inhibition of vasoconstriction of blood vessels supplying the kidneys.
In addition, polyuria can also occur due to other trigger factors, for example:
Drinking too much Environmental conditions are very cold Bladder disorders, for example due to infection, cancer, overactive bladder, injury Kidney problems, for example interstitial nephritis, kidney failure, kidney stones, kidney infections Enlarged prostate, for example due to benign prostatic hyperplasia, prostatitis, prostate cancer Excessive anxiety disorders Other diseases, such as diabetes, sickle cell anemia Side effects of drugs, for example anti-hypertensive drugs, etc. If your complaint is purely caused by consumption of alcohol and caffeine, then this complaint should improve itself after the alcohol and caffeine levels in the body You are eliminated from the body. However, if the complaint persists for more than 2 x 24 hours, or is accompanied by pain during BAK, changes in color, smell, or cloudiness of urine, fever, vomiting, and chills, then you should check with your doctor immediately so that the best treatment is carried out. It could be that the doctor will recommend that you undergo further tests, for example urine tests, X-rays, ultrasounds, blood tests, and so on.
So that complaints do not recur, it is highly recommended that you stop consuming alcohol and limit your caffeine consumption. Besides being able to cause an increase in the frequency of BAK, excessive alcohol consumption can increase your risk of developing cancer, pancreatitis, heart problems, hypertension, stroke, liver disorders, and brain damage. Meanwhile, excessive caffeine consumption can cause you to experience sleep disturbances, constant anxiety, heart problems, digestive disorders, migraines, tremors, and so on. Drink plenty of water to meet your fluid needs. Eat a healthy and nutritious diet. Divert your desire to consume alcohol by keeping yourself busy with positive activities, such as exercising, socializing with the environment, worshiping, and so on.
Hope it helps ..
