Things to Know About Nocturia

Things to Know About Nocturia

Nocturia is a urological condition that affects roughly 50 million people in the United States alone. The majority of those afflicted by nocturia are senior citizens. If you have nocturia or you suspect that you may have it, you’ll want to check this out. 

What Is Nocturia?

Nocturia is characterized by the need to wake up at night to urinate repeatedly. Waking up multiple times a night to go to the bathroom is disruptive and it can affect your mood by making it virtually impossible to get a good night’s sleep. 

This condition usually surfaces once you get older and it can be exasperated by the consumption of diuretics such as coffee and alcohol. Menopause, urinary tract infections, and nocturnal polyuria can cause Nocturia. 

Treatment Options

No one enjoys having to get out of bed multiple times a night to go the bathroom. After a few nights of nocturia, you’ll be cranky, groggy, and unrested. Most treatment options start with limiting your intake of coffee, alcohol, and other diuretics. Anticholinergics are typically administered to make the bladder less active. 

Alternatively, Desmopressin has been used to treat this condition as it can regulate urine production. While taking midday naps and keeping your legs elevated can help, Nocturia doesn’t usually just go away which means you’ll have to see a urologist.

Blood in Your Urine, Should You Be Concerned?

Blood in Your Urine, Should You Be Concerned?

When you have blood in your urine, it’s natural to be concerned about it. If you are unsure what to do after experiencing blood in your urine, you’ll want to give this a read. Blood in the urine can be an indication of a serious medical problem, however, it can also be quite benign in other cases.  

What Does it Mean?

Having blood in your urine can mean a variety of things, some dangerous, some not. The presence of blood in the urine is called hematuria. When it comes to hematuria, there are two major categories, microscopic hematuria, and gross hematuria.  

The former occurs when blood is present in the urine but is not visible while the latter indicates blood that is clearly visible. If you have gross hematuria, it should be comforting to know that it doesn’t take much blood to alter the color of urine which means you’re not losing as much blood as you may think. 

That said, if you’re passing clots, you need to seek medical attention. Blood in the urine can mean anything from a simple and easily treatable UTI to a more serious issue like kidney disease, bladder stones, or an enlarged prostate. 

Don’t Wait Until it’s Too Late, Call Z Urology Today!

If you’re seeing blood in your urine, it is imperative for your health to make an appointment with a urologist as soon as possible. Z Urology has one of the most talented teams of urologists in South Florida.
