Customer Question

I was on a protein diet for 10 days. I passed a lot more water during that time.
I came off that diet and am still passing quite a lot sometimes with urgency.
What is the problem.

Hello
The problem can be underlying kidney disease, which a protein diet can make worse.
See your doctor now.
Have a test called a comprehensive metabolic panel and a urinalysis.

I have no pain or discomfort passing water. If I press on my bladder area when full I feel pressure.

I would go to urgent care for the tests.
It is that important.
It is up to you, but I recommend again that you do not wait.
