Nocturia: Hi. How many times do you get up to pee on an average night? Diabetes insipidus (poor ADH (vasopressin) production or function) is a very uncommon cause of nocturia. The most common is drinking a lot in the evening. Diabetes mellitus is also a common cause of nocturia. Congestive heart failure or any cause of lower extremity edema where the kidneys still work will cause nocturia.
