Just last weekend I had about 4 beers. It was the first time I had any beer in a while (at least a couple of months). The next morning I found that I had to actually try to urinate. The flow would be very weak, so I would have to give it a little push.
I have noticed this problem before in the past, but it is so infrequent that I didn't think anything of it. It is just now that I had connected it with drinking beer. Although, sometimes if I hold my urine too long (to the point where I really need to go) I will also have to push.
The night after having those beer, I decided to drink what I usually drink - whiskey! I drank way more of the whiskey than would have compared to the 4 beers. The next morning I had no trouble at all with urinating.
So, my question is, has anyone ever heard of beer affecting urine flow? I had asked a few friends about this problem and I was told that it could be related to diabetes, but I am not diabetic. They said that some people's bodies can't process the sugars and other things in malt.
Any other opinions on the subject would be greatly appreciated! Thank you in advance!
