Hello,

If you feel that your urine output is less than you have to rule out kidney disease.

For that, you need to investigate with urea, creatinine estimation, pelvis ultrasound etc.

Kindly mention for which reason you are using water pill.

You can revert back with reports once done to comment further.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Parth Goswami, General & Family Physician
