Am I urinating too often
I notice that I go to the toilet more often than anybody else in my office. I drink about 2.5 litres of water,2cups of tea and 1 cup coffee in a day, and I pass urine about 12 times in 24hrs( I counted yesterday). Is this normal? Is there need for concern.

Dear K
It depends on how much volume you pass each time - your doctor can do a UKE blood test to see if your kidneys are working normally and can test your urine to see whether you have high sugar levels in the urine or very diluted/concentrated urine which can be an indication of kidney disease.
