Have you ever heard anyone saying that peeing can be bad for you? Well, we are not exactly referring to that, but what we want to tell you is that if you are running to the loo frequently after eating, that’s not a good sign.
Dr Santosh Palkar, Consultant – Urologist, Zen Multispeciality Hospital, says we need to be observant about doing this because frequent urination, especially after eating food, may indicate an underlying health problem.
Do you notice that you are peeing constantly after having your meal? This could be due to high sugar intake. Did you know that having a lot of sugar can make the acid level of your urine higher, providing a good environment for bacteria and causing the infection to thrive.
“Moreover, having a lot of sugar will lead to a spike in blood sugar levels and an increased amount of urine that can be produced by the body. But if one is going through frequent urination or there is a need to go to the toilet immediately after eating or drinking something, it can be a symptom of a disease,” Dr Palkar tells Health Shots.
As per Dr Palkar, you can try doing kegel exercises. You can do any of the following exercises:
In all these exercises, you need to hold the pose to strengthen your muscles. The longer you hold the positions, the better your pelvic muscle will become.
The bottom line is, in case you have to go to the washroom immediately after eating then just consult the doctor and get appropriate treatment for the disease or condition causing frequent urination.
