What Is Polyuria?


Say: pah-lee-YUR-ee-uh

Someone who has uncontrolled diabetes may urinate (pee) a lot. Polyuria is the medical word for this. This happens to people who have diabetes due to high blood sugar levels. The kidneys remove some of the extra sugar from the body. To do this, the kidneys make unusually large amounts of pee.
