Perhaps this is not discussion for polite company, but all too many of us lose precious sleep as we head to the bathroom multiple times each night. The causes of this “need to go” are many, depending on your sex and your underlaying health. Known as “nocturia,” the frequent need to urinate during the night can be more than just annoying- we know there can be significant health consequences to poor sleep. But now, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has approved a new medication for one particular cause of nocturia: if your body produces too much urine during the night, a condition known as “nocturnal polyuria.” Not everyone who races to the loo during the night suffers from this, but if you’ve been given this diagnosis then help may now be available.
