Title: How to Increase Urine Flow in Men & Women

How to Increase Urine Flow in Men Women
  • Slow urination can occur in both men and women
    and is defined by a sub-par urine flow rate.
    Urine flow rate is a measure of the volume of
    urine that is expelled from the body in a
    specific duration of time. This rate of urine
    flow can vary with the same person experiencing a
    lowered urine flow at certain times and a higher
    one at other times. This is because the rate of
    urine flow depends upon the degree of fullness of
    the bladder, the circumference of the urethra and
    the pressure applied while urinating.

  • Uroflowmetry or uroflow is a procedure used to
    measure the volume of urine released, the speed
    at which the urine is released and the time it
    takes for the release to occur.
  • During this test, you will have to urinate into a
    special toilet that has been fitted with a
    measuring device. The results from the test will
    enable your doctor to determine if your urine
    flow rate is normal or low. Moreover, this test
    needs to be performed when a person has a full
    bladder, so urinating for at least 2 hours prior
    to the test should be avoided.

Urine Residual Test
  • A urine residual test measures the amount of
    residual urine in your bladder after urination.
    This is known as the post-void residue and is
    usually measured using an ultrasound scanner
    which produces a detailed image of your abdomen
    including the bladder. These tests are usually
    performed by a radiologist in a clinic or a
    hospital. A catheter inserted into the urethra
    can also be used to measure the post-void
    residue. Post-void residues in excess of 100mL
    indicate that the bladder is not emptying
    properly due to some reason.

  • The cause of a weak urine stream resulting in a
    slow urine flow rate could be nothing more
    serious than a case of dehydration. An additional
    symptom of dehydration is urine that is dark
    yellow in color. This can be remedied easily by
    drinking several glasses of water. Other causes
    however, may be more serious and require
    treatment. They include urinary tract infections,
    structural defects in the urinary tract, bladder
    and kidney stones and an enlarged prostate in the
    case of men.

How to Increase Urine Flow
  • Urine flow rate can be increased in many cases by
    a few simple home remedies. Drinking plenty of
    fluids and keeping well hydrated is essential.
    Another step would be to drink at least 8 glasses
    of barley water or unsweetened lemon juice every
    day in addition to your regular fluid intake.
    Drinking cranberry juice will also help to clean
    your urinary tract and promote healthy urine
    flow. Always make sure your genital area is dry
    and clean. This will eliminate the risk of any
    external infection.
