Frequent urination
Sep 7, 2013
I am not sure what I have, but I have the classic symptoms of BPH.

Weak urine stream
Difficulty starting urination
Stopping and starting while urinating
Dribbling at the end of urination
Frequent or urgent need to urinate ( I go and then 5 minutes later I need to go again)
Increased frequency of urination at night (nocturia)
Straining while urinating

About a month ago, I began using an additive that changes the pH level of water to Alkaline called Alkalife.

Below are the ingredients.

Distilled water, potassium hydroxide, sodium hydroxide.

I know that the hydroxide are toxic to the body in large doses. It makes sense that these might the cause of my urinating problems.

Does anyone know if those ingredients can cause urination problems?

First off.. How old are you?
How long has this been going on, was t a gradual thing?
Did you stop using this additive?

You need to see a urologist who can check the size of your prostate.
