Constantly waking up during the night to urinate is a very bad indicator. If this is a recurring symptom, you should be aware that you may have more severe symptoms. Although waking up at night or in the middle of the night to urinate is not always a sign of danger, it is necessary to check yourself if you start experiencing it more frequently.
In this article, we will study some possible reasons why you wake up to urinate at night. This is known as nocturia in the medical world, and it is a highly dangerous disease that often occurs due to many chronic health problems. Just sit back and admire this piece while learning new things.
1. Diabetes; This is a serious health problem that occurs when a person's blood sugar level exceeds the body's normal range. This is usually due to the pancreas's inability to produce enough insulin or the body's inability to properly use insulin for glucose metabolism. When there is too much sugar in the blood, the result is frequent urination, mainly at night, which often impairs the individual’s sleep quality.
2. Bladder infection; when the bladder is infected or has disease, it may lose its ability to retain urine. When this happens, you will experience more episodes of nocturia or wake up to urinate between sleeps. This is not a ridiculous or joking matter; if you experience a series of nocturia, it is best to consult a doctor for an appropriate treatment plan.
3. Male prostate hypertrophy; this is another cause of frequent urination or repeated nocturia. Although this is usually benign, and the likelihood of an enlarged prostate increases with age, it is undeniable that it increases the risk of nocturia. If you have an enlarged prostate, you will have a stronger urge to urinate and may occasionally wake up to urinate at night. This is because the swollen or enlarged prostate will press on the bladder and produce a stronger urge to urinate even when you sleep.
