Top Tips

Concentrated urine can irritate your bladder, so have six to eight drinks per day to make sure the urine in your bladder is dilute.

In hot weather drink more to replace the fluid lost through perspiration.

If you donít like drinking, consider taking more foods with a high water, for example jelly, yogurt, soup, milk puddings or ice cream.

Reduce your caffeine intake. Caffeine (found in tea, coffee, cola, cocoa and a range of over the counter pain killers) has a diuretic effect, increasing the amount of urine produced. It can also irritate your bladder making it want to empty more frequently and urgently. You could try de-caffeinated drinks instead, but ensure you change to de-caffeinated slowly to reduce any withdrawal effects.
