    whey protein causes frequent peeing?

    ive been taking a whey shake consistently after my morning for years now. one thing i never understood is that after taking the shake around 8am, not only is my pee bright bright yellow, but i have to go approx 5-6 times between the hours of 8 and 12. finally around 1-2pm it starts to go away. this is becoming a bigger problem because i travel a lot for work and its a huge inconvenience to have to keep walking out of meetings to use the bathroom....i searched yahoo but did not find anything useful.....any tips?

    What all are you consuming in the mornings? The bright yellow pee might be due to some dehydration. Make sure you are drinking enough water in the evenings. More info might yield some better answers.

    ok...here is my exact morning regimen:

    wake up at 5am
    2 fish oil pills
    4 musclepharm vitamins
    2 amino acid tablets

    morning workout

    isopure whey shake
    1 amino tablet

    usually arrive back home and immediately have to use the bathroom. luckily, i work from home, but i constantly have to get up from my desk throughout the morning to take a piss. it has been this way since i started taking protein shakes several years ago. it has intensified in frequency only recently it seems. i timed it once and here was my bathroom schedule:

    7:30am
    8:20am
    9:22am
    10:15am
    11am
    11:45am
    12:30pm

    after that i went back to my normal bathroom schedule...but as you can see, my mornings can be quite uncomfortable to say the least. odd thing is that today, i havent gone as much...maybe only 2-3 times since i got back from the gym.

    lol bright yellow piss just means u need to drink some more water man. i wouldn't worry to much about it...

    i drink so much water. i think i piss like every hr. and if im busy and i hold it for like another hr. i piss like a firefighter hose.

    u talking about frequent pissing.... if u don't have diabetes i think ur good. and if ur stream ain't weak ur good.

    That's alot of vitamins your taking in = excess vitamin bs = bright yellow piss. Its what you get for taking unecessary vitamins (IMO). Drop the vitamins after your done them and eat a variety of food like vegetables (peppers, brocoli, asparagus, etc...) and fruit (apples, oranges, bananas) and you wont be pissing yellow. But if you do stay on your tablets do dirnk atleat 1 gallon of water a day.
    Every time you stay out late...
    Every time you sleep in...
    Every time you miss a workout...
    Every time you don't give 100%...
    You make it that much easier for me to beat you...

    im not a doctor, but its weird thats its only in the morning
    if it was all day i would be a bit worried as that might indicated kidney problems

    maybe take a week off that powder if you think its the problem? a week isnt gonna make you lose much anyway

    bright neon is from the multivitamin
    i think its the riboflaven that causes it or one of the b vitamins, not 100% sure, but its normal occurance

    Agreed, B vitamins can cause it. Try drinking some more water in the evening too. If you really need to know just remove the vitamins for a couple days see if it gets better. Troubleshoot it.

    Like the others said, it's from your multivitamin. I recently switched Multi's for a GNC megaman, someone gave me a box for free, anyways, as soon as I started taking it my pee turned neon yellow. It's nothing to worry about, if it bothers you switch multi's. I had one I bought from BB.com that didn't have any effect on my piss.

    You're probably peeing a lot because your drinking a lot of water due to the neon pee.

    The reason for your frequent urination must be the increased amino intake ( if you notice labels on pre-workouts you'll see that they recommend you drink a LOT of water). I think amino before workouts is good , after your workout just the protein shake should be good. Yes, increased protein intake also increases urea in your blood and hence you will urinate more often. This is just stuff that i have understood from a lot of reading and some experience..not a doc.

    ^^^This. The only way you will pee more if by having a higher fluid intake, or by consuming anything diuretic like coffee.

    Your pee is yellow from multivitamin and not consuming enough water.
