How much urine does my body produce every day?

Dr. Jill Rabin
OBGYN (Obstetrician & Gynecologist)

Each day the kidneys filter approximately forty gallons of blood but excrete only about 1 percent of the blood’s water and salts. They produce approximately four ounces of urine per hour unless adversely affected by drug intake or favorably affected by the efficient pumping of blood through the body when it is exercising or lying flat. Anywhere between thirty-two to sixty-four ounces of urine are produced daily.
