    Do u urinate more on a high-protein diet?

    I began body building last summer and I increased ( probably tripled) my protein intake.
    I notice that I wake up at night to pee( it never happened before ) and also during the day I have to pee more frequently than before( 6-7 times a day). I red about this and found out thet higher protein uptake leads to increased diuresis, but I want to know if other people experience this.I am a bit worried because this could also be symptoms of Prostate or bladder disease.

    Thank you for your replies.

    As long as you're drinking enough water, you shouldn't have to worry about a high-protein diet. This increased water intake will, in turn, make you go to the bathroom more. If you're having problems with peeing at night, try cutting off water intake at a certain time, maybe around 7:30, so that you aren't full when you go to bed.

    I have the same situation. I drink lots of water during the day, and hardly any at night, yet I have to piss like crazy at about 5 am every morning

    yep i do pee more often nowadays since i've increased my protein intake lately, which also goes with an increase in water consumption.

    Yes you urinate more. Proteins are made of amino acids, when you have a high protein diet you have excess amino acids. Your body therefore takes the amino group of these amino acids and converts them into urea. Protein is usually broken down into water, carbon dioxide and nitrates( urea). This explains the frequent urinating and the drinking more water.
