Thank you for the input.

I would advise you to have an examination by doctor & have a few tests. There can be a few probables. Diabetes ,urinary tract infection can cause increased frequency of urine. Diabetes can also cause increased hunger & thirst., But without disease also frequent urination may occur if you drink excess water, coffee, alcohol etc. Bloating & fluid retention also can occur from a few probable causes like heart, kidney, liver disease, low blood protein & others. You may need to test your urine for analysis, blood sugar, protein, electrolytes , liver function tests, EKG, ultrasonography etc to pin point the disease condition. Hormone levels may need to be tested too. Please consult doctor for examination and investigations.

Any query, please feel free to ask.
It will be my privilege to assist you.
