    Polyuria/health related issue


    I am a steroid user and have decided to stay on a very low dose (200-250mg per week) and consume large amounts of protein (as per any other bodybuilder really)
    In the last 1-2 years I have started experiencing polyuria to the extent of going to the toilet every 45 minutes to 1 hr. This happens even when I am dehydrated and inhibits sleeping patterns.
    The list of causes for polyuria is extensive and I wondered if any bodybuilders (or medics here) had experience of this or information regarding the issue.

    Ps
    Please move this to the correct location if I have posted in the wrong section

    Regards
    Dave

    Have you had a blood draw with a basic metabolic panel (glucose included)? The first thing I think of with polyuria is diabetes, but that can be ruled out relatively quickly with some basic blood tests. If you haven't done this already, I would suggest getting some basic lab work done.
    If you have already done this and everything is normal, it may require digging a little deeper. What other supplements/medication/drugs are you taking?
