Frequent Urination and Diabetes

Posted on August 23, 2018

"I am a coffee drinker and have started forcing myself to drink more water but it is tough. I seem to get up every hour to use the restroom no matter what my fluid intake might be. Any others have some advice or similar issues?" - member of DiabetesTeam

On DiabetesTeam, the social network and online support group for those living with type 2 diabetes, members talk about a range of personal experiences and struggles. Frequent urination is one of the most discussed subjects.

Here are some question-and-answer threads about frequent urination:

Ever since I was diagnosed, my sleep cycle is usually interrupted every couple of hours so I can pee. Any reason?

Does anyone else get up every hour to use the restroom, no matter if there is no fluid intake?

Does anyone else notice that your urine has a strong odor?

Here are some conversations about frequent urination:

Well, I had to take myself off another drug... Bad constipation, bladder and urinary tract problems (feels like I have been drinking acid for the last few days)...

Before I started treating my diabetes, before I crashed at work, I was thirsty like a man out in a desert looking for water and using the bathroom like a second home.

Surprised that my sugar stays good as I am having urinary tract infections one after the other. Again on antibiotics

Can you relate?
