8 tips to stop waking up at night to go pee | Nocturia

  • Limiting fluid intake before bed. This is especially important for fluids that act as diuretics, such as alcohol and caffeine.
  • Emptying your bladder before bed. This will help to reduce the amount of urine that builds up overnight.
  • Maintaining a healthy weight. Obesity can put pressure on the bladder and make it more likely to fill up.
  • Avoiding medications that can cause frequent urination. If you are taking any medications that cause frequent urination, talk to your doctor about whether there are alternatives.
  • Treating any underlying medical conditions. If you have an underlying medical condition that is causing frequent urination, such as an enlarged prostate or diabetes, treating the condition may help to reduce the frequency of urination.
  • Pelvic floor exercises. Pelvic floor exercises can help to strengthen the muscles that control the bladder and reduce the frequency of urination.
  • Bedwetting alarm. A bedwetting alarm is a device that is worn on the body and will wake you up if you start to urinate. This can help to train your bladder to hold more urine overnight.

If you have tried these steps and are still having problems with frequent urination, talk to your doctor. They may be able to recommend other treatments or help you to identify the underlying cause of your problem.
