  • The Number Of Times You Pee Indicates How Healthy You Are

    This may not seem like an important thing to consider its just peeing right? Wrong! The number of times you hit the loo is very important in determining how hydrated you are.

    Dr. Neil Grafstein, assistant professor of urology at the Mount Sinai’s Hospital’s NYC, answer all our urine related questions

    How often should one pee?

    As mentioned, there’s no definite number of times for peeing, but average people tend to urinate at least four times a day with a maximum of seven times per day. If you pee more than seven times, don’t panic just yet. There are several factors that can influence your urination frequency, including your hydration and how you hydrate yourself.

    For instance, if you drink too much water, you will pee more often. Additionally, if you drink alcohol, coffee, and other bladder irritants, expect to go to the bathroom more. There are also people who have sensitive bladders, which means they have the urge to pee at the slightest urge. Meanwhile, there are those who can hold their pee until their bladders are about to burst.

    Can we pee too often?

    Unfortunately, there is. If you pee 11 times per day or more after drinking two liters of fluid, this could mean you have a problem with pee frequency. Oftentimes, too much peeing is due to an overactive bladder, which may be contracting more than necessary. This results to feeling the urge to pee a lot. But Dr. Grafstein says we can train our bladder. The condition is that we don’t have incontinence problems.
