Frequent Urination

I am having lots of frequent urination. I have had urinalysis and I have tested my kidneys. My biggest question is that I go frequently in the day, but not at night. Does that indicate I don't have an overactive bladder?

Hello,

According to this article , overactive bladder syndrome is generally characterized by having to wake to use the restroom once or more during the night, but just because you don't have this symptom doesn't necessarily mean you don't have OAB. I suggest you speak with your doctor about what your symptoms would be classified as, and any treatment options he/she recommends. I assume that the tests you mention above all came back clear? The link above has some home treatment tips for frequent urination that you might try, including bladder training exercises and monitoring fluid intake.

Best wishes,
Atti
