Does Frequent Urination Indicate Kidney FailureQuestion: Hello doctor, I have problem for going toilet at five times a night. Is this Kidney Failure? How can I help myself?

Answer: Frequent urination doesn’t always indicate Kidney Failure. This condition has various underlying causes. Patients with severe nocturia may get up five or six times during the night to go to the toilet.

Nocturia is often a symptom of other conditions including urinary tract infection, a tumor of the bladder or prostate, diabetes, stroke or other neurological diseases. In addition, pregnancy and diuretic use are also associated with nocturia.

All the above are the possible causes of frequent urination at night. To find the real cause, you’d better take a test.

Kidney Failure, also called ESRD (End Stage Renal Disease) is a condition which requires dialysis or kidney transplant. The kidneys fail to filter wastes, remove extra fluid and maintain blood pressure because most of the functioning units are dead. Patients may experience swelling (edema), reduction of urine output, fatigue, proteinuria, hematuria or high blood pressure, etc.

If so, you are suggested to limit sodium, protein, potassium and phosphorous intake. Fluid intake should also be strictly controlled. Ask you dietitian to make a kidney-friendly diet. But you cannot consider it as replacement of medication. There are some natural treatments for Kidney Failure. For that purpose, you can email to kidney-symptoms@hotmail.com, and our doctor can provide you detailed introduction for free.
