Ferring study highlights serious impact of nocturia on sleeping habits

17th March 2017

Ferring has announced the findings of a new study showing how nocturia is having a severe impact on sleeping habits worldwide.

According to figures highlighted to coincide with World Sleep Day, the need to wake up and urinate more than once a night disrupts the sleep of one-third of adults over the age of 30, as well as two-thirds of adults over the age of 65.

As such, around 80 percent of people who complain of a disturbed night's sleep report that nocturia is the main reason they wake up in the middle of the night, creating a potentially serious impact on their mental and physical health.

It is known that a lack of sleep can impact all forms of mental functioning, impair people's social skills and productivity, and lead to an increased risk of diabetes, weakened immunity, heart disease and some cancers.

Philip Van Kerrebroeck, editor of the Nocturia Resource Centre and professor of urology at the University of Maastricht, said: "Poor sleep can seriously damage your health, so people who are getting up several times a night should go to their doctor to see what's causing it."
