Consuming too much food and drinks that can make the body often want to urinate risk causing dehydration.
Reducing drinking water consumption so that you do not urinate too often? You are mistaken. Consuming less drinking water will actually cause interference with the urinary tract. The high frequency of urination can be triggered by the consumption of certain substances or elements in food and drinks.
