The most common reason why people have problems with their urinary system is due to aging. People are becoming older and it becomes harder for them to keep up with the regular needs of their body. Aging causes various changes in your bodily functions. These include loss of muscle mass, loss of bone density, decline in mental abilities, and other physical symptoms such as pain or discomfort. All these factors make it difficult for you to maintain a healthy lifestyle.
In addition, aging increases the risk of developing many health conditions, including kidney disease, high blood pressure and diabetes mellitus (Type 2 Diabetes). Kidney failure is one of the leading causes of death among people over 65 years old. High blood pressure affects millions of Americans each year and accounts for approximately 30% of all deaths from cardiovascular diseases. Type 2 diabetes is another major cause of death among people over age 50.
There are several treatments available to treat these health conditions, but none of them are completely effective. Some of the most popular treatments include medications, surgery and dietary supplements. None of these options is without side effects and they may not always work well enough to prevent complications. There are also some alternative therapies that can provide relief from the symptoms associated with these medical conditions.
One of these alternative treatments is called urea. Urea is a substance that is naturally produced in your body. It is mostly found in your blood and urine. It can be also consumed from certain foods such as milk and other dairy products. Urea serves various purposes within your body.
It helps to prevent dehydration by eliminating excess water from your body through the urine, it helps control your body temperature, and it eliminates toxic substances that can damage healthy cells.
In some people, an insufficient amount of urea is produced by the liver. When this happens, your body can no longer get rid of excess water and it starts to build up in your blood and in delicate tissues such as the eyes and the kidneys. This is called hypouremia or water intoxication. It causes many health conditions such as swelling, nausea, confusion, vomiting, convulsions and even coma. Eventually, hypouremia can cause death.
When consumed in small quantities, the synthetic form of urea, called Mannitol, promotes the production of urea in the liver. This allows your body to get rid of excess water and eliminate toxic substances. Mannitol is usually given intravenously to treat various conditions such as head trauma, swelling and bleeding within the brain. It is also used to treat drug overdoses and poisoning caused by various toxic substances.
Mannitol has been given to people who have diabetes insipidus, a disorder that causes you to produce an excessive amount of urine and become dehydrated. It has also shown promise in treating people with kidney failure by removing excess water from the body. Mannitol may also be useful in preventing kidney stones from forming by keeping certain minerals from hardening within the urinary tract.
Mannitol can be purchased from health food stores as a dietary supplement. It is also available as an over-the-counter medication to treat mild dehydration caused by conditions such as vomiting, diarrhea and excessive sweating. It comes in several forms including tablets, capsules, powder, wafers and solution for injection or intravenous infusion. Mannitol works by drawing additional water from the bloodstream into the intestines when it is ingested orally.
The dosage of Mannitol depends on the reason for which you are taking it. It is usually given intravenously at a hospital to treat water intoxication but can also be given through a vein or under the skin. For treatment of dehydration, the recommended dosage is between 100 and 500 grams, taken orally in divided doses every two to four hours. The maximum amount that should be taken within a 24-hour period is 2 to 2.5 kilograms.
Mannitol should not be taken by people with a history of pancreatitis, blocked bowel, severe abdominal pain, intestinal obstructions and stomach or bowel surgery. It should also not be taken if you have an allergy to Mannitol or related products such as sorbitol or glycerol. It is very important to stay hydrated while taking Mannitol therapy because it can be absorbed into the body faster than the kidneys can eliminate it. This can lead to low blood pressure, seizures and even death.
Mannitol is a natural substance that has been used for many years. It is safe when taken in the recommended dosages and may be useful in treating conditions such as dehydration.
It can also help to prevent the growth of some bacteria and yeast and is added to several products, including toothpastes and mouthwashes. It can be found naturally in some berries, fruits and vegetables. As with any over-the-counter medication or natural health product, you should consult your doctor before taking Mannitol to make sure that it is safe for you to use.
