Most people urinate about 4 to 6 times a day, mostly in the daytime. Normally, adults pass between 700 Ml and 3 quarts (3 liters) of urine a day.

Excessive urination can refer to

  • increased volume of urine (polyuria)
  • normal volume of urine with the need to go more often (urinary frequency)


Some of the causes of increased urine volume differ from those of too-frequent urination. However, because many people who produce excessive amounts of urine also need to urinate frequently.

  • Bladder infections (the most common cause in women and children)
  • Urinary incontinence
  • Noncancerous enlargement of the prostate gland (benign prostatic hyperplasia—the most common cause in men over 50)
  • Stones in the urinary tract

The most common causes of polyuria in both adults and children are

  • Uncontrolled diabetes mellitus (most common)
  • Drinking too much fluid (polydipsia)
  • Diabetes insipidus- Diabetes insipidus causes polyuria because of problems with a hormone called antidiuretic hormone (or vasopressin). Antidiuretic hormone helps the kidneys reabsorb fluid.


  • Urinalysis and urine culture
  • MRI
