Effectiveness of kidneys

During the day, I have little need to urinate, at night during certain nights several times to urinate, should  the liquid taken during the day be discharged in a few hours and not accumulated till sleep ? I am 68, and male recent tests show everything normal.
Does HGH in level 1, 0.2 mg/day pose much stress to kidneys ? How about with  0.01 mg small amounts tetosterone occasionally as well. Does Ambien affect kidneys at 5 mg levels ?
Thank you.

Hello - thanks for asking your question.

The time it takes from drinking fluid to urinating is variable and is difficult to predict.

Looking at my drug handbook, it does not seem like renal failure is a side effect of HGH.  

With testosterone, some genitourinary effects include bladder irritability, but no effects on the kidneys.

The handbook does not list any renal side effects for ambien.  

To check your renal function, you may want to have your serum creatinine checked and have your physician calculate your GFR (glomerular filtration rate) to determine your renal funciton.

Followup with your personal physician is essential.

Thanks,
