Sleep Matters!

Diane K. Newman
October 25, 2018

I have been struck by the results of a recent Harris Poll national online survey of 2,040 U.S. adults, on the effect of nocturia, awakening one or more at night to urinate.  Their data shows that nocturia is not only a nighttime problem. 61% of nocturia sufferers noted that daytime activity and function were negatively impacted by their lack of sleep as 42% of sufferers feel drowsy, 21% site irritability, 17% are unable to perform or function and 15% report inability to concentrate.
