Sometimes we get poisoned, either by inhaling certain gases, touching certain metals, or eating poisoned foods. One of the body’s responses to toxins is urination. Usually, people urinate 6 to 7 times a day, but if the process is more frequent than usual, this may indicate a serious health problem.
Exposure to toxins may lead to constant peeing. Some of the toxins which make the urinary tract more active are:
- ● Formaldehyde: A chemical that is very soluble in water and has a pungent odor. When this substance enters the human body, it is metabolized by the liver and red blood cells and excreted with urine and feces in the form of formic acid. Formaldehyde can be found in freshwater, fruits, and vegetables and preventive additives in certain foods. It can be inhaled in cigarette smoke, smoke from burning wood, liquid fuels, cleaning supplies, etc. In the medical field, it is principally used for dissection and dental polishing. Clinical trials have tried to shed light on the toxic effects of this gas on the urinary tract. A study demonstrated that endovascular formalin used to treat chronic hemorrhagic cystitis causes acute renal insufficiency. Another study in alcoholic patients found that methanol, which is metabolized to FA and formic acid, causes tubular necrosis of kidney tissue. A final report on cancer-causing agents by the National Toxicology Program reported that high levels of exposure to formaldehyde cause cancer of the kidney, bladder, and even prostate, and This certainly affects the amount of urine the patient generates and causes him to use the bathroom more than usual.
- Lead: is a natural element found in small quantities in the soil and has many good uses, but excessive exposure to it may be harmful to humans. When lead accumulates in the body, it can be harmful to adults, but it can be more dangerous for children because their immunity is lower. Lead can be found in old paint, domestic paint scraps, water pipes, car exhaust, and toys. Over the past few years, dangerous levels of lead have been observed in drinking water in many U.S. cities. This has raised concerns regarding AF long-term health risks. Too much lead in the body affects the kidneys, which is medically referred to as “lead-related nephrotoxicity.”
Treatment is determined by the underlying cause. Constant peeing can often be treated with exercises and bladder formation like:
- Kegel exercises: help to strengthen the pelvis and urethra muscles and support the bladder.
- biofeedback: allows the patient to become more conscious of the functioning of the body and helps it to improve its control of pelvic muscles.
Although you can’t prevent most urinary problems, you can try to keep your urinary system healthy by maintaining good hygiene and adopting a healthy lifestyle.
To help your urinary system operate properly:
- limit the consumption of alcoholic beverages.
- Drink lots of water as it helps you eliminate toxins avoid foods rich in sodium and calcium, as excessive use of some of these salts can lead to toxicity.
Constant peeing can be a symptom of high or long-term exposure to toxins, particularly gaseous ones. Therefore if you notice that you are eliminating your need more than usual and that you may be more susceptible to toxins than others, you may want to consider consulting your doctor.
