    In no way did I say I was a doctor. Leaving that aside.

    It is good to have medical information for those of us who have need of learning. My pa has diabetes got him at 60, he's 81. So far so good. Its usually strokes or some form of respitory failures that kill in my family after around 90ish give or take a few years. The last 9 members of my family died by stroke into their 90's One when the lungs quit. At some point I will go out that way too. Or something else.

    I spent just about all of my trucking years with absolutely zero medical care no dental care and very little as necessary hearing and glasses care. And the occasional ER patch em up and dump em back rolling.

    The health I was found to be in really bad shape in my 40's by a team of doctors after about a two year evaluation. I am visiiting my heart doc for our very last appt before he retires. If I ever have a heart issue which is not going to happen, arteries clear, muscle battleship and a couple valves are bad but timing is powerful strong. So thats not the issue. My team of doctors is down from 20 to 3. Back to hearing aids and glasses. When that is done, time for DOT medical exam.

    However. When I consider the bad nutrition, the bad fluids habits and the horrible overall situation in my previous years I consider myself fortunate. If trucking was so bad for me why am I stupid enough to get to it? Well, I don't know any better. Its what i am. And so whatever happens will happen.

    There is one advantage. A great deal of information that is very valuable here and elsewhere. If I can learn from say Moose and others then I can be aware and take care of myself better where possible.

    Better to P every hour than one day have kidney stones. "Tactical dehydration" is a great way to get kidney stones. Drinking water and a balanced diet are the best prevention, but drinking WATER is ALMOST without downside. Sip the water, don't chug it. Urine color should be very light yellow toward clear.

    you could have prostrate troubles. if so, then your doc will prescribe meds, but eventually, minor out patient surgery may be needed.

    don't ask me how i know.

    It's great if you just have to P just once.

    Fyi., its normal for a hydrated human male to have the urge to urinate ever ( 1 ) hours., that is the time it takes your liver, kidneys, colon to process one full glass of water.... It is not normal to have to go every 2-3hours as it clearly indicates your dehydrating yourself.

    So i fail to see the logic in this post...

    You should be stopping for a quick restroom brake ever 1.5hrs or 85 miles.

    Are you guys suggesting that you go in a bottle or jug Going down the road without stopping at all?

    Without getting too graphic, can someone explain to me how you do this?

    It seems to me if you are not allowed to have one finger on your phone, going in a jug while you are doing 60 miles an hour isn't a violation?
