    Why is it when I am adhering to a diet/exercise program I have to get up to go to the bathroom frequently during the night? When I am eating what I want I don't have this problem.

    Another possibility is a prostate infection, or enlarged prostate.

    Get your prostate checked, just to be on the safe side.

    At 35, aren't I a few years away from that?

    It doesnt have to be cancer...just an enlarged prostate which could be due to several things.

    But cancer can come early. I know a fellow who had it at 26. One guy in my support group has it bad at 41...he had surgery with margin positive...meaning everywhere they cut there was more cancer.

    It doesnt hurt to be checked, but it could kill you not to...you make the decision.

    BTW, I had no symptoms whatsoever with my cancer. It was caught in a blood test. Thank goodness!

    My dad was diagnosed with prostate cancer recently and his symptoms were relatively mild. Frequent urination only set in about 2 weeks before he saw the doctor.

    aside from the prostate questions, i wonder if your detrussor muscle is weak? ask your MD about it too.

    Are you taking any supplements or caffeine containing products, any stimulants? If not, don't over worry about it, but do check it out with your doctor. If you are taking any supplements or caffeine containing products you should try stopping those and see if the problem persists.

    My dad had a workup for diabetes which was thankfully negative, but yes diabetes symptoms include frequent urination, frequent eating with little or no weight loss, protein in your urine (real foamy urine). So get that checked out along with your prostate.

    Take Caslon's advice. He knows what he is talking about.

    Extremely overweight people retain water,

    Fresh food including fruit, veg, non processed meats, protein shakes etc contains a higher proportion of water.

    Refined starchy carbs do an excellent job of absorbing water in the stomach. Water passes quickly in the absence of them. Particularly if your eating less later at night.

    More fiber means you should be crapping out proportionally less water and peeing out more.

    When you dump salty savory snacks and processed food your kidneys react to the lower salt concentration in the blood too dump more water into your urine.


    Lots of contributing causes equals one effect

    Have your blood sugar checked right away. I am pre-diabetic and when I was recently off my medication (Metformax), the frequent urination started immediately. And as many have said, get the PSA blood test for prostate cancer and the, let's say, "manual exam" to check prostate. An enlarged prostate will push up and cause that too. Good luck!

    Frequent urination can be caused by a lot of things

    It can be caused by... an infection or irritation in the kidneys or the bladder
    by enlargement of the prostate
    by medications
    by changes in diet and exercise
    by unknown medical problems like Diabetes and Addison's Disease

    so you have a lot to choose from
    but if it keeps up you see a Doctor... 35 or not

    Well, he does have a point. It is a symptom. Of course, your doctor should check for that routinely during any round of blood testing.

    This is what I found when I researched the subject.

    Well diabetes is pretty common, and in addition, obviously, you consume more water while training. I also go to the bathroom more frequently since starting training.
