Dear Sunaina,
It is not healthy to restrict your water intake to only 1 glass of water. However passing urine so frequently is also not normal.
Do you also need to get up at night as frequently?
Is the amount of urine passed, small or large?
Are you consuming fluids in other forms tea, coffee, colas, softdrinks etc?
Check your urine routine and microscopy?
Keep a strict record of fluid intake and urine passed?
These would help better understand your problem...
