Does Any One Else Get Up Every Hour To Use The Rest Room No Matter There Is No Fluid Intake

Does Any One Else Get Up Every Hour To Use The Rest Room No Matter There Is No Fluid Intake

it seems i wake up every hour on the hour and use the bathroom like a race horse , The sad thing is i limit my intake of fluids. on nights i don't sleep my sugar seems to rise during the nite ,

an old friend of mine who had a stroke said limiting your water intake at night was a mistake. So I don't. If I take sleeping aids,which I often do, I don't wake up to urinate much at night. But, my body tells me in subtle ways that I am not getting enough WATER . Notice I said water and not soda or pop or coffee or tea. Caffeinated drinks make me have to go more often and don't hydrate me .

I also am up frequently to urinate at night. Disrupts my sleep which makes me feel tired all the time.

When I told my Dr I was up to 3 times a night she started tests and found out I had sleep apnea. Now with my machine I hardly ever get up to go. She said your body will send any message it can to your brain. So you get up and get more oxygen

You are probably having a high blood sugar. Only found out recently that that was what was wrong with me.

I get up twice a night to go but I have to drink a lot because of kidney stones. Jardience makes my mouth dry which does make me drink more.
