Causes

Common Causes

Beer potomania is due to a large consumption of beer (which has a poor salt content) together with a minimal intake of ordinary food. Three facts contribute to beer potomania:

  1. Beer contains a lot of free water with very little salt and protein (one liter of beer contains only 30 mg of sodium).
  2. The amount of free water we excrete depends upon number of osmoles that need to be excreted.
  3. The kidneys can dilute urine to a maximum of 50 mosm/L
