Genetic Mutations Make Swedish People urinate 15 Liter

Urinating is usually not more than 1.5 liters / day, but some people in Sweden can do up to 15 liters / day. The cause of the disorder has been around since 100 years ago is finally revealed, namely due to genetic mutations.

Since the 1800s, citizens in rural areas adjacent to the Norwegian Varmland many are experiencing a strange disease.
Within a day, these people can urinate up to 15 liters, so need to drink the same amount to maintain body fluid balance.
Strange disease was recently revealed by Dr Johan Jendle, a doctor from Karlstad Hospital.

If so far unexplained, strange diseases can now be classified as one type of kidney disorder called diabetes insipidus.
Sufferers sometimes can not be far away from the toilet and at times must have easy access to drinking water
said Dr. Jendle in a local newspaper his Wermlands-Tidningen, as quoted from Dailymail.

Dr Jendle managed to uncover the causes behind this mysterious illness after a history tracing Varmland residents, including descendants are now scattered all over Sweden. The cause is none other than genetic mutation, which is estimated to have occurred since the 1800's.

As a result, approximately 50 percent hereditary Varmland villagers suffering from this disease due to inherited genetic factors.
Simple blood tests can be done to know a person inherits a genetic factor or not, so that treatment can be done before symptoms appear.

In addition to genetic factors triggered, the disease could also be triggered by other causes. Damage to the pituitary gland can also lead to excessive waste of water, as well as tumor growth and the presence of trauma or violence in the urinary tract.
