As human beings, urination is a necessary bodily function. Urination is vital because all of the water and fluids we drink must eventually be eliminated from the body. Nonetheless, the body was built in a way that ensures its functions serve the individual's best interests.
The kidneys normally slow down while a person sleeps to prevent frequent waking up to urinate during the night, which would disrupt sleep quality. Frequent nighttime urination wake-ups have been linked to a variety of health problems, according to research. This article will determine, in accordance with a report on Healthline, how often a healthy adult should get up during the night to urinate.
How Often Should a Healthy Person Get Up Throughout the Night to Urinate?
According to healthline Unless a diuretic is used, studies show that when the body needs to relax, the kidneys momentarily slow down their activity to conserve water. The slow functioning of the kidneys during sleep means that it is common for people to go the entire 6- 8 hour duration of sleep without needing to wake up even once to urinate.
If a healthy individual doesn't drink water right before bed, they shouldn't have to get up in the middle of the night to urinate. But, no more than twice every night is acceptable. You should get checked out if you wake up to urinate more than twice in a single night; this is a clear sign that something is amiss. Nighttime urination might have a variety of causes, many of which require urgent medical attention.
