    Is peeing once every hour considered frequent and therefore need to see a doctor? I do at times depending on weather, etc.

    weather should have no effect on your pee... apart from if it being hot you peeing less water.

    Peeing once an hour is abnormal - go see a doctor.

    Every hour is too often I would think. An enlarged prostate can be the issue. I find that walking into a warm place after being outside in the cold can give me the urge to pee.

    You are a bit young for enlarged prostate, but it could be. Go see a doctor as soon as possible. Do you find it hard to pee? Do you pee a lot at a time?

    Depends on how much fluid you are imbibing, too.

    I agree with Cas... if your guzzling lots of water or other fluids, that would be a good reason to go running to the bathroom.

    I guess I should add that altho it is rare for someone your age to have prostate cancer, which could cause this, it is not unheard of. So get yourself checked. Early detection means easier treatment.

    This is my problem ever since I am in my twenties. I go to toilet to pee "all the time". If it raining and cold I will go twice as often. I hope there nothing wrong with me. Now sure if I need to get myself check.

    Urinary frequency has many causes.

    1. Infections.. usually one has burning with urination also. more common in women than men...but is a possibility in your case

    2. Diabetes...This is a very common cause that takes people to their physician. You are kind of young for type 2 diabetes mellitus unless you are very obese. There is another type of diabetes called diabetes insipidus which involves a hormone made in the brain. This can occur with a head injuries and from other problems with the brain

    3. Excessive fluid intake...some people drink fluids excessively when anxious

    4. Problems with the kidneys, bladder and prostate.

    You should check with a physician

    I tend to pee more often when I drink coffee and/or tea. The urge of peeing stays on for hours and then I have to go every hour as well sometimes. Getting up at night is common too. Being outside in the colder air for a while makes me pee more often too. Just clear water is then what comes out.So yes, the weather has influence here as well.

    It helped me to lower my coffee and tea intake. I don`t drink too much in the evenings anymore, just some water with dinner, and so I sleep like a baby without a nagging bladder in the middle of the night.

    You might wanna monitor your eating habits too.
    It is known that when you don`t eat solid food with fibers etc for a longer period, your bodycells automatically respond and will let go of the water in them which makes you pee all the time. (some diets start with this phenomana).

    Do this test online to check your prostate just in case:

    Good luck. Let us know if any of this helped you.

    Have you started a workout regimen that has you drinking plenty of water before/during/after work, in conjunction with protein shakes ? The increased protein intake simply means that the the ammonia/uric acid has to be flushed out more often, that along with raising total water intake in a short amount of time results in pissing more often than a pregnant chihuahua. (I went through this for a few months.)

    You are in your forties now. It would be no harm to have a checkup.

    If this is a change from your previous urination patterns, and in the absence of significant changes in diet, exercise and so forth, then bring it to the attention of a doctor. Also if the need to empty your bladder is regularly waking you up in the middle of the night (assuming you aren't routinely drinking a beer or something just before retiring).

    You do not, however, make it clear if this hourly pattern continues all day, or only at certain points in the day. I don't know what you mean by "at times." Is there a recognizable pattern? And have you been taking any supplements that might act as a diuretic (causes the kidneys to remove more fluid from your body)?

    A bladder than doesn't fully empty, often a sign of prostate blockage problems in a man, will result in more frequent urination. And if you go into a cold environment, say from indoors to outdoors, or merely getting a chill after a shower, some men will experience muscle contractions that will compress a half-full bladder and make them suddenly need to void.

    On the other hand, a hot, humid environment that causes heavy perspiration may slow down urination, if the body begins to dehydrate enough to reduce kidney output. Once the body rehydrates urine production will resume at its former rate, or may even show a temporary spike.

    In my own case, I do have chronic partial prostate blockage, and my "normal" pattern is to pee very often for the first couple of hours each morning after waking. The frequency goes down as the day wears on, but I always have to visit the men's room more often than the average man without this prostate problem.

    A urologist can do a computerized urine flow test to check for restriction, and also scope your urethra to look inside for blockage and other problems (not my favorite test... EEEEK!)

    I have to say that I ignored all the signs of my Type One Diabetes and peeing was one of the biggest ones. I just told myself it was because I had just returned home from 10 days in California, and that I was just "hydrating" myself...

    I would suggest going to a doctor. Peeing every hour like that isn't usually common.

    Thanks heaps for your advice; there's so much of brotherhood here! Awesome!

    Just to clarify, I drink about 4 cups of coffee daily. I drink as much liquid to compensate for that, I dont sweat easily. I pee often when it's like 10c - 24 C. When it gets really cold, like below 0C or very hot 30+C, I don't pee as much. I'm like this since 10 years old and GPs could not determine what's wrong with me. I'm also prone to anxieties/ nervousness/ excitement .....

    Do these details explain why?

    I agreee with most of the posting hee. definitely check with your doctor, if its something thats persistent and continuous it defintiely couild be a medical problem like diabetes, prostatitis, benign prostate hyperplasia, or something no one else has mentions High Blood Pressure or Hyrpertention. The kidneys play a significant role in salt regulation and blood pressure. Be safe and have it all checked out.

    Temperature (Body Temp/Percieved Temp - Not Actual Weather) can affect the muscles in the body, including the bladder. Anxiety and other nervous disorders can also affect the muscles.

    There's nothing wrong with you...I also like my coffee. I don't have the same frequency of urgency as you, but I do go alot. I'm also hungry practically ALL the time but I still have no dietary issues like diabetes or anything. My body just metabolizes food fast and that was before I started my new health regimen.

    When I began my workout and diet routine from here on RJ, I started on the 1800-calorie diet. I was hungry and wasn't seeing any progress. I changed to the 2100-calorie diet, am seeing more and more change, but I am still hungry...and that's between meals and snacks.

    Some people just have funny metabolisms...but still check out what you can. icon_smile.gif
