    Frequent Urination and Chronic Kidney Disease

    Frequent Urination and Chronic Kidney DiseaseUrine is the waste products made in the kidneys. When kidneys cannot work well, patients may be affected with frequent urination. Also, other urine changes, such as less urine output, protein in urine etc may follow with this symptoms.

    What is Frequent Urination?

    Frequent urination, where you feel an urge to pass urine more often than usual, is not just a a nuisance and a cause of poor sleep, it can be a symptom of an underlying medical condition. Polyuria is a medical term that refers to the excessive passing of urine (frequent urination). Frequent urination can be a symptom of many different disease and it is a common sign of kidney disease.

    How are Frequent Urination and Chronic Kidney Disease Associated?

    The frequent urination is associated with CKD, because kidneys work to form urine.

    In order to produce urine, the kidneys do not simply pick waste products out of the bloodstream and send them along for final disposal: there are more than a million of nephrones which exists in each kidney. There are mainly 3 steps, namely, filtration, reabsorption, and secretion.

    In the step of filtration, the glomoerulus can use the high pressure to forces out the liquid part of the blood, including dissolved substances, such as urea, salts, glucose etc, The filtrate from the glomerulus passes into the renal capsule and moves into the renal tubule.

    The next step is reabsorption, in which molecules and ions will be reabsorbed back into blood. What remains in the glomerulus after this process has taken place is known as the tubular fluid and this is what will pass through to the collecting duct to form urine.

    The frequent urination is uasually associated with this step. When kidneys are damaged, its reabsorbed function will decrease. As a result, frequent urination may occur.

    At the step of secretion, the waste products such as creatinine, BUN will be removed from blood and be urinated out with excessive water, which forms the urine eventually.
