Answer to your Health Question

Question:


Can severe emphysema cause excessive urination (17-20 times a day) when having shortness of breath

Patrick


Answer:

Dear Patrick,

Frequent urination can be caused by a lack of antidiuretic hormone (ADH) which helps regulate urine volumes.
Chronic bronchitis and emphysema are sometimes linked to lung cancer.

Carcinoma of lung is sometimes associated with hyponatremia, a low concentration of sodium in the blood.

Hyponatremia has been attributed to inappropriate secretion of the antidiuretic hormone (ADH).

Many possible conditions and lifestyle factors can lead to hyponatremia, including: certain medications.

Some medications such as some antidepressants and pain medications can cause you to urinate or perspire more than normal.
