A retrospective data abstraction was conducted for the new patients who encountered a provider between May 2010 and September 2016 and received a diagnosis of nocturia. Former diagnosis of genitourinary malignancy, primary OAB complaints, recurrent urinary tract infections, and incomplete FVC were the exclusion criteria. One hundred and nineteen charts were considered eligible for analysis.
The study showed that nocturnal polyuria was the most common categories with a prevalence of 79.9%. Reduced bladder capacity defined as a maximum voided volume of <250 ml, was identified in 40.1% of patients. Global polyuria was diagnosed in 3.3% of individuals and 35.3% were mixed (2 or more mechanisms) (Figure 1).
According to the univariate data analysis, age of 85 years and older and 4 or more nocturic episodes per night were linked to the risk behind nocturnal polyuria. However, when adjusted for age ≥ 85, subject’s BMI and gender, only high number of nocturia episodes (4 or more) was associated with NP (OR=6.6; p=0.001).
