Does Excessive Night Urination Mean Kidney Disease

2012-12-15 15:57

Normally, the urine output declines at night. Most people can sleep six to eight hours the whole night without using the bathroom. However, some people notice that they go to the toilet frequently at night and they have to wake several times throughout the night voiding their bladders. You should not neglect this abnormal phenomenon as it may be an early sign of kidney problem.

In right condition, the kidneys can remove extra fluids from body by producing urine. However, if kidney problem occurs, the kidneys will not work adequately as before. Therefore, the kidneys have to work at night to filter blood, thus resulting in excessive night urination.

Excessive night urination is a very early sign of kidney problem. At this time, creatinine and BUN are usually still in normal ranges. Some special tests for kidney disease can be used to detect the kidney damage.

However, not all cases of excessive night urination are associated with kidney problem. It may also be due to the following causes:

Benign prostatic hyperplasia

The prostate becomes swollen due to the presence of benign prostatic hyperplasia. It can obstruct the flow of urine, not allowing for a complete emptying of the bladder during urination. The urine reaming in bladder causes urgent urination, resulting in frequent urination throughout the day and night.

Congestive heart failure (CHF)

CHF is a common cause of excessive night urination. This condition can cause high levels of fluids to build up in body. The accumulated fluids will turn into a large volume of urine when sleeping.

Urinary tract infection

Excessive night urination may result from urinary tract infection. This condition usually occurs along with burning urination, fever and abdominal pain.

Besides the above causes, diabetes, sleep disorders are also possible causes of kidney problem. If you have the above the problem, you should go to see a doctor to find out the causes and then take relative treatment at once.
