What is Frequent Urination?
There are few things more natural than the need or urge to urinate; and the need and frequency varies from person to person. Even on a daily basis it will normally range between four to eight times depending on liquid intake and exercise. It is difficult to state just how frequent is frequent urination, but as a general rule: frequent urination is the urge to urinate or use the toilet at a frequency greater than what you are accustomed to or more than eight times a day. This can affect bedtime behavior, as well as interrupt daily activities.
Aside from interrupting activities and lifestyle, change in urination frequency can signify a medical condition. The cause of frequent urination can be associated with diabetes, urinary tract infections, enlarged prostate, pregnancy, or interstitial cystitis. High blood pressure medication also has a diuretic quality that will flush excess liquids from the body.

Read an interesting article and thinks it worth passing on. Old folks have to get up in the middle of the night to go pee. Most have to because their urine is acid and their body is trying to save them. It is not because their bladder is full. So to help get a good night's sleep, drink a glass of water with a teaspoon of baking soda in it prior to bed time. It is working for us. ======RH=======
