Ask the Doctor – Strength Magazine – March, 1928

Causes of frequent urination are several-both physiological and pathologicaL The former causes would be excessive water drinking, cold weather, decreased amount of perspiration, mental excitement, worn, anxiety and nervousness. The latter reasons would include diseases of the genito-urinary tract as diseases of the kidneys, such as exogenous and indigenous types-stones, Bright’s disease, bladder disease, and prostate trouble. I would say, however, that clue to the fact that you mentioned several characteristic symptoms, you are most likely suffering from kidney disease; and although your urinalysis reports are so far negligible in importance you should have them made often, as I believe the definite trouble will make its presence known by that means.
