Is Frequent Nighttime Urination a Problem?

By    |   Wednesday, 11 Dec 2013 09:43 AM

Question: I can't sleep through the night because I have to get up to use the bathroom at least two or three times. Should I be worried?

Dr. Hibberd's answer:
 
Bladder or kidney problems, and other health disorders such as diabetes, can lead to frequent urination. But it can also reflect simply an overabundant fluid intake before bedtime. But it's not a good idea to simply guess. Seek professional medical guidance to be sure you don't have a serious medical condition such as diabetes.
 
Too much caffeine, drug effects from weight loss agents that contain diuretics, bladder conditions (infection or malignancy), prostate conditions (infections or tumor) in men, and some forms of kidney failure are a few conditions that can cause frequent urination and require early diagnosis.
 
A simple brief exam and a urinalysis is often all that is needed to rule out, or identify, any problem.
