Nocturia negatively influences
the quality of sleep

  • Poor sleep quality is a highly prevalent and chronic condition that merits greater awareness due to associated serious implications.1

  • The primary reason for night-time awaking in adults is nocturia, which shows a decreasing quality of sleep with increasing number of nocturia episodes.2

  • Nocturia, the need to void during the night, with each of the voids preceded and followed by sleep3, warrants full consideration as a significant target for intervention aiming to reduce the burden of poor sleep quality.1

  • Sleep disturbance due to nocturia is associated with daytime fatigue, poor concentration and decreased mood and memory impairment.4
