Frequent visits to the bathroom could be linked with obstructive sleep apnea

Frequent visits to the bathroomFrequent urination during nighttime is no longer an only symptom of bladder issues or enlarged prostate. This could be due to obstructive sleep apnea also. A recent research has concluded these findings. It is published in the Journal of the American Board of Family Medicine. Obstructive sleep apnea is a condition in which a breathing process stops for a while because of the closing of the airways. This study was done by the researchers of Ben-Gurion University of the Negev. They evaluate health concerns of middle-aged and old men and found that almost 57% of men who are dealing with enlarged prostate or benign prostatic hyperplasia may deal with obstructive sleep apnea too.

According to the researchers, why men wake up in the nighttime is because of sleep apnea and not because of enlarged prostate disorder. BPH is the common complaint made by oldies. Likewise, sleep apnea is also a common issue developed in men and women too. It is disturbance in breathing that lasts for around 40 seconds and it develops many times while the sufferer is asleep. Symptoms are snoring sound as the person tries to breath from the mouth and causes sound which is called as snoring. Daytime sleepiness, altered blood pressure, weight gain, mood swings and abnormal heart rate. Sleep apnea is connected with the higher risk of heart issues and stroke and thus treatment should be done at the earliest with waklert nootropic drug.

Obstructive sleep apnea is the major reason why men get wake up from their sleep to urinate. However this may be true in the case of men suffering from enlarged prostate. This study claims that men wake up from the sleep because of sleep apnea and not because of prostate issue. Another finding of the study also says that men with severe sleep apnea spend more of the nighttime in the bathroom. Sleep apnea may alter the kidney functioning and thus one may urinate more in the nighttime even if he has no prostate disorders.
