Drink less water but urinate frequently
Under normal circumstances, the amount of urine discharged by the human body is directly related to the amount of water ingested. If you drink less, you will urinate less, but if you drink less or not, you still urinate more, it may be due to kidney problems. The cause of this symptom may be urinary tract infection or cystitis, or glomerulo-Nephritis.
" Acute glomerulonephritis after streptococcal infection is more common in children and adolescents. Under pathological conditions, less urine indicates a decrease in glomerular filtration function, which may be caused by a decrease in renal blood flow, inflammation or even destruction of small renal units, such as acute nephritis. " It is also possible that the reabsorption ability of renal tubules decreases, resulting in water not reabsorbed and discharged from the body, which is one of the factors that " drink less water but urinate frequently".
According to traditional Chinese medicine, the pathogenesis of glomerulonephritis is mainly due to deficiency of spleen and kidney, especially kidney deficiency, and the intrinsic factor is kidney deficiency. Kidney deficiency does not dominate the normal progress of water and liquid metabolism, and at the same time, it leads to deficiency of defensive qi, resulting in unstable surface and defensive, which shows a decline in the body's disease resistance and susceptibility to colds.
Due to the insufficiency of kidney's water governing function, it is easy to cause slow metabolism of water and liquid, leading to stagnation of dampness and turbidity, obstruction of qi movement, stagnation of qi and heat, formation of damp-heat internal stagnation or stagnation of qi and blood, and blood stasis. Dampness and blood stasis block further aggravate the damage to kidney qi and form a vicious circle.
