    I have had UTIs (urinary tract infection) for about three years. Antibiotics cleared it up but it kept recurring. yeah, for three years I was treated regularly with antibiotics, and until recently, no doctor had noticed that my urine culture showed no bacteria, I dont know what to do and what treatment should I take, and now I cut sugar out of my diet, I tried different home remedies with no success, is there any effective increased frequency of urination treatment..thanks for any help.

    There was this thread discussing polyuria. A few members said they were helped by vitamin B12.

    There was also this paper which indicated that polyuria was one of the symptoms associated with B12 deficiency.

    Polyuria can also be a symptom of Orthostatic Intolerance or Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome.

    I am prone to UTIs - one of my kidneys is weak. Several years ago I started taking a cranberry supplement daily and it's helped prevent UTIs from recurring. It may help with frequent urination too. I take 6 softgels a day (two 3 x day): https://www.swansonvitamins.com/swanson-premium-cranberry-180-sgels

    Do you have problems with candida due to all the ABX? That's very bad for doctors to keep prescribing ABX when there is no infection. We have to be our own doctors in many ways and not rely on them to do the right thing.

    See this post for recurrent UTI treatments.



    Are you asking for treatments for recurrent UTI's, or for increased frequency of urination, or for both?

    There are so many medical conditions that could cause your symptoms that it might be a good idea to see a urologist for a complete work up. Especially, if you've had these symptoms for a long time.

    Some supplements, prescription drugs and OTC medications can be harmful to your kidneys. This may or may not be related to what you are experiencing but it's good to be aware of these potential side effects.

    Good luck!

    Yes, there are drugs that treat increased frequency of urination, but it’s important to get an accurate diagnosis first as there are many different causes of this symptom. See a urologist. Drug-wise, it will depend on what the urologist determines the problem to be. For overactive bladder, for example, people might be put on Betmiga (mirabegron) or an anticholinergic.
