Ben Brucker | November 20, 2018

A recent study from the European Urology Focus journal, “Differential Nocturnal Diuresis Rates Among Patients With and Without Nocturnal Polyuria Syndrome” the Veterans Affairs Health System analyzed frequency-volume charts of adult males with two or more nocturnal voids. After excluding patients with diuretic use, obstructive sleep apnea, chronic kidney disease, diabetes insipidus or edema, 130 subjects were included.
