Detailed Answer:
Hi and welcome to HCM.
This is really huge urine output and several issues may be considered. First, it is possible that you drunk too much fluids, especially if you took alcohol, carbonated drinks or juice. Also, some medications may promote urination such as diuretics or antihypertensive medicines. Third, it may be sign of diabetes or hormonal imbalance and rarely kidney disorders. I think you should reduce fluids intake at this point to 2 liters per day, regulate blood pressure and see what happens. If there is no improvement or there is low blood pressure, you should see doctor for further evaluation. Wish you good health. Regards
