If you are making multiple trips to the ‘potty’ at night, it is not normal and can have a significant impact on daily life and long-term health.

Nocturia affects nearly 50 million Americans and is a leading cause of sleep disruption.

However, most Americans have never heard of nocturia and think waking multiple times at night to pee is just a normal part of aging and, consequently, don’t talk to their doctor about it.

What is nocturia?

Nocturia is a diagnosable medical condition that forces you to wake up more than once a night to urinate.

Over 80% of the time nocturia is caused by the kidneys producing too much urine at night, a treatable condition called nocturnal polyuria.

Patients with nocturnal polyuria may also have other conditions that contribute to their nocturia, such as benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) and overactive bladder (OAB).

Nocturia impacts

Lasting Effects
of Sleep Loss

Sleep loss can be hazardous to your health. Let’s illuminate the facts.

mental function

Loss of sleep can lead to decreased cognitive function, daytime tiredness, changes in mood and memory deficits.

Excessive daytime sleepiness and napping may be linked with greater β-amyloid (Aβ) deposits in the brain, which are associated with Alzheimer’s.

NIGHT-TIME FALLS

Nocturia sufferers are more at risk of fractures and fall-related traumas.

Most night-time falls in older adults are associated with bathroom trips, of which nocturia increases the risk by 25% over three years.

Daytime Function

Daytime drowsiness, irritability, and lack of ability to concentrate are reported in over 60% of nocturia sufferers.

If you sleep less than 5 hours per day, you may be more at risk of injury at work vs workers who slept 7-8 hours.

traffic accidents

An estimated 21% of fatal crashes involve a drowsy driver.

People are 4-6 times more likely to be in a car crash or near car crash if they are drowsy.

Mortality 

Men over 60 years old with nocturia were at an increased risk of death.

Depression

Nocturia is associated with increased likelihood of depression, especially among men and women in their 30s.

Type 2 Diabetes

Sleep disruption is associated with a greater risk of developing type 2 diabetes.

People who had difficulty maintaining sleep are 84% more at risk of developing type 2 diabetes.

SEX DRIVE

Low testosterone levels are linked to poor quality and disrupted sleep.

Sleep loss impacts a women’s sex drive: one extra hour can increase sex drive by 14%.

obesity

Nocturia is associated with an increased risk of obesity.
