Q. What foods or liquids, juices, proteins, fruits, are good for Male Prostate or Urinary Frequency?

I am 53 YO Male with exessive urinary frequency. Is there a fruit, food, drink, pill, mojo, that would help me with this problem? I am talking about urinating 3 to 4 times every night, and or while watching TV, every hour or so. No pain, yet, an occacional after drip that is very anoying. Perhaps I have a prostate problem and should consuld with my Urologist. Yet, before I go there, does anyone know of something I can eat or drink to fix or aleviate this problem?
A1Thanks for the heads-up. One of my issues is that I LOVE coffee, thus, reducing my daily consumption of 2-3 cups could be a problem.
A2I don't know about any food that specifically targets this problem, although some steps you may take include avoiding fluids prior to bedtime or before going out, reducing consumption of mild diuretics (substances that make you produce urine) such as caffeine and alcohol, and double voiding to empty the bladder more completely.
