Bathroom trips at night - A cause of secondary insomnia

toilet trips at night due to prostate hyperplasia

A restful night's sleep is something people tend to take for granted. There are various health problems that can cause sleep deprivation in the form of secondary insomnia, or insomnia caused indirectly by, often, treatable condititions. Nocturia caused by prostate hyperplasia is one of them and is a real issue for middle aged men, who have to make frequent bathroom trips at night.

Benign prostatic hyperplasia affects a majority of men in their sixties and onwards. It is benign, as the name suggests, but can nevertheless create very uncomfortable symptoms, such as having to use the toilet many times every night.
