Brief Answer: Hi Detailed Answer: Hi Thanks for posting your query on XXXXXXX You are suffering from polyuria (increased frequency of urination). Most probably it is osmotic diuresis for some reason as you seem to be hypovolemic (water being drained from your body). It can be due to diuretic use (a medicine), diabetes mellitus, kidney dysfunction. From your combination of symptoms it can also be due to increase in serum calcium levels and possible hyperparathyroidism. Back pain may also be because of some kidney issue, which can also cause similar symptoms. Diabetes insipidus also should be ruled out. Thus I would recommend some investigations below: - Urine sodium concentraion. - Serum calcium and vit D level - Serum Parathormone assay - Urinalysis - 24 hr osmole excretion rate estimation in urine - Blood urea nitrogen, serum creatinine - thyroid profile (T3, T4, TSH) - Fasting blood glucose and glucose tolerance test. - Water deprivation test Since you are becoming hypovolemic, it should not be ignored. Preferably you should get further treatment in hospital setting. Hope it helps. Let me know if I can assist you further Dr Vaishalee
