Hello

Thank You for contacting HCM. My name is Dr Muhammad Ali Rauf & i will look into your problem.

I have gone through your query and would try to help you in the best possible way. There could be a number of causes for your complaint. Most common cause for increased urination & weakness is diabetes. Do you or anyone in the family has history of diabetes? If yes then you need to get checked by getting a fasting & random blood sugar test. Second common cause is urinary tract infection which can be confirmed by undergoing a urine complete examination.

Hope I have answered your query. If you have any further questions I will be happy to help if not then don't forget to close the discussion and rate it.
