Nighttime urination can have various causes, ranging in severity from 'troubling' to 'generally fatal'. Finding the true cause means ruling out or confirming each possibility – in other words, diagnosis.
Diagnosis is usually a complex process due to the sheer number of possible causes and related symptoms. In order to diagnose nighttime urination, we could:
|Congestive Heart Failure||26%||Unlikely|
|Prostate Enlargement||0%||Ruled out|
|Interstitial Cystitis||0%||Ruled out|
|Mercury Toxicity||0%||Ruled out|
|Urinary Tract Infection||0%||Ruled out|
Nighttime urination. On average, about how many times do you get up to urinate during your sleeping hours?
Possible responses:→ Rarely / only if I drink too much / don't know
→ Three times
→ Four or more times
Changes in the frequency of urination, especially at night, may indicate kidney disease.
Fibroids can lead to increased urinary frequency and urgency.
