Dr Oz: Check The Toilet
Dr Oz has been answering awkward questions about breast sweat and even vaginal farting. He also revisited his popular Dr Oz Poop Guide, and as a companion to that, he is giving us another reason to check the toilet before we flush with the Dr Oz Pee Guide. Find out if your urine is normal.
Dr Oz: How Many Times Should I Pee Every Day?
How often are you getting up to pee throughout the day or night? Dr Oz said the normal amount is between four and eight times every day. (That means my dog is normal, so good for him.)
Doctor Oz also said it’s important to check the toilet before you flush your pee as well, so you can start looking for indicators about your health. Just like with the Dr Oz Poop Chart, what you see in your urine could tell you what’s going on inside your body.
Dr Oz: Urine Flow & Quantity
Look at how much you pee and how it comes out when you go to the bathroom. If you are dribbling, that’s a sign of Incomplete Urinary Emptying, which could be a medical issue you need to have addressed. Bacteria can also build up in stored urine if you aren’t clearing out your bladder in the bathroom.
You should be releasing around eight ounces of urine when you go to the bathroom, and it should come out in a steady stream. Diabetics and others may notice urinary gushing, which is a sign of dehydration.
Dr Oz: Pee Smells Funny?
Dr Oz wants everyone to take note of any unusual odor coming from the urine. Scents can give you clues about your metabolism. Just as you may have heard, asparagus creates a sulfur smell.
The scent you should be worried about in your urine is a sweet smell. That could mean you’re urinating sugar because there is too much in your blood. That means you might have Diabetes and not know it.
