What could I do in order not to go so many times to the restroom?

Hi I am a male person and my age is 55, I exercise every day 1-2 hours, I noticed that like 2-3 months ago I started drinking more and more water than before to the point that I needed to have a bottle of water with me all the time, but it is uncomfortable because I have to go to restroom almost every 2 hours during daytime and wake up like 3-4 times during night time, I noticed that I lost weight too, and muscular mass also because my pants now are very loose, I should be more than happy because maybe the gym is working but those many visits to the restroom is what is getting uncomfortable and getting out of control. is this normal? or what could I do in order not to go so many times to the restroom, I started to drink less water to see what happen, but the sensation is still there

Age:
Male
Medications: none
No
General Information: Also when I wake up my mount is completely dry like my salivary glands were not producing any saliva that is only at night time during the day is normal

Hello. Of course, your thirst may be due to you working out. But abnormal thirst can also be caused by some medical problems such as Diabetes and Anemia. or you may be suffering from Dysuria (Abnormal Urination). You should consult your doctor for some basic testing such as urine, Sugar and CBC blood tests and get your Bladder, Prostate and Kidneys checked. To reduce your need to urinate your doctor can also prescribe Anticholinergic medication.

Hi. Thanks for the query.. Your symptoms of polyuria (excessive urination), polydypsia (excessive thirst) as well as dry mouth or Xerostomia are typical symptoms of Type 2 Diabetes or adult onset diabetes.. At times weight loss also occurs due to high blood sugar levels. Also considering your age it is an important suspected cause for the symptoms.. So first of all you should get your fasting, post prandial blood sugar and HbA1C levels done. If there is any increase in blood sugar levels then you should get proper treatment done via hypoglycemic medicines. Hope this helps.. Regards

You could also have and underactive thyroid (the butterfly shaped gland in the neck area) basically saying that that you thyroid produces less thyroid hormones than normal also known as hyperthyroidism
