Bladder infection, incontinence and in the worst case a blowed bladder. It is an extremely bad idea to always wait until the last moment to empty your bladder. Your bladder will punish you for it.
Let your pee splash regularly!
That is the brief and concise advice to men and women who always hold their pee as long as possible instead of responding to the call of nature.
The bladder can't take it, and blood poisoning and kidney failure are just some of the complications that can occur if you don't empty your bladder in time.
If you fill your bladder to the brim every day, you may need to briefly review the points below:
Accumulated puddle leads to urinary tract infections
Bacteria can quickly divide into still ponds. That is why it is a bad idea to walk around with a full bladder for a long time. In addition, the pool flushes invaded bacteria from the urethra when you go to the toilet.
Bladder infection is the most common urinary tract infection and is usually caused by coli bacteria from the intestines that enter the bladder through the urethra.
A bladder infection can develop into an acute one renal pelvis infection, which can lead to blood poisoning in 10% of the cases.
Bladder always runs a little over
If you have increased the ability to hold your pee for a longer period of time, your bladder will have stretched and become limp. That can lead to ischuria paradoxa, where you can only pee a little bit.
You have the urge to urinate all the time, but only a few drops come out. There will also regularly leak something in your underpants, because your bladder is always trying to work some pee outside. Drop by drop.
A tightened bladder can damage your kidneys
When your bladder is completely full, your kidneys must work hard to propel the fluid they've cleaned.
This causes the kidneys to come under high pressure, which persists after you have emptied your bladder. This can lead to kidney failure.
Ultimately you run the risk that you will renal dialysis Need. In addition, your blood is pumped through a machine to purify it or doctors spray a cleansing fluid directly into your abdominal cavity.
A blowed bladder fills your stomach with pee
The ultimate consequence of stopping your pee is that your bladder is bursting. However, that is very rare and is especially common in people who already have a damaged bladder.
But it can happen if you are drunk. Under the influence of alcohol, the nerve signal between the bladder and the brain is limited, which can cause the body to 'forget' to urinate - until your bladder jumps.
A blowed bladder is not only extremely painful, but your pee is released and flows into the abdominal cavity, where he infections can cause.
The solution: urinate regularly
All these complications sound very serious, but luckily they are easy to prevent. If you just empty your bladder once every three or four hours, there's nothing wrong.
If your bladder is already a bit slack because you stop your pee too often, it is best to pee regularly again. As a result, the bladder muscle recovers.
A healthy bladder is a precious possession: once the bladder is properly damaged, you can't do much else but get used to the idea of peeing through a catheter for the rest of your life.
Enjoy your pee.
