Hello and welcome,

Thanks for your query.

First of all I need to know if you have any of the following:
-Diabetes (in which increased urination is common). If not, I suggest you get your blood sugar levels checked
-Are you on any medications for a diagnosed condition of Tuberculosis? (as orange urine is seen in patients who are on an anti-TB medication called Rifampicin)
-An enlarged prostate (prostatomegaly- the prostate in males is present close to the bladder and can at times even cause an increased urge to urinate) Can be diagnosed with the help of an ultrasound investigation.
-Do you have any other symptoms of a urinary infection like- chills, fever, burning sensation while urinating, etc.

I would also like you to know that it is normal to urinate many times, as long as the intake and output is almost the same. The lesser one drinks, the lesser he urinates (which is obviously unhealthy).

If you really think this is proving to be troublesome for you, I would advise you to get your urine analysed for any signs of an infection.

I hope I have succeeded in answering your questions, you could write back to us anytime for further clarifications.

Best wishes.
