Recent Night Urination

The past week and a half I have been needing to get up once nearly every night to urinate - usually a couple/few hours before I normally get out of bed. In the past I've rarely ever had to get out of bed in the middle of the night to urinate so this change has me a bit concerned.

I haven't noticed myself drinking more fluids than normal, and I haven't noticed a significant increase in urination during the day. I seem to be urinating a normal amount of fluid each time, usually on the lighter side of yellow.

I'm 29 years old and am overweight and have been almost my entire life - so obviously my first thoughts were diabetes, however since I have no other symptoms and I've only starting seeing this in the past week and a half, my gut (or maybe that's 'hope') tells me it's something else.

This whole thing got me thinking and I will probably schedule an appointment with my doctor this week, if nothing else just for a checkup - however I was wondering if anyone else has experienced this before and have any ideas of why this may happen all of a sudden.

Thanks much.

Re: Recent Night Urination

Good on you for making that appointment. Maybe it could be a urine infection, Your Dr will prob order blood work to rule out yr diabetes theroy, worth getting checked. Healthy urine should be clear, yellow norm means too much sugar or even not enough water. Good luck.
