Hi there,
Nocturia is the need to get up in the night for urination. It is common in pregnant women and in the elderly. Nocturia can be caused by three mechanisms. Problems of fluid balance, by neurological diseases affecting bladder control and by disorders of the lower urinary tract and benign prostatic enlargement in males.Cystitis, diabetes mellitus, CHF are few common causes of nocturia.A clinical examination and investigations to rule out above mentioned causes is necessary for appropriate management. Treatment will depend on the cause. Keep me updated.
Best wishes and regards!
