Nocturia: Any burning or pain with urination? Do you consume much fluids before bedtime, especially things with caffeine (acts like diuretic)? Any discharge? Do you have to go frequently during the day? Any (family) history of diabetes? These are some questions to discuss with your fp, who can then proceed appropriately with your care.

Possibly UTI. How long has this been going on? Best to see FP for evaluation.

See below: At your age it is unlikely to be prostate issues, so simple explanations would be that you may be taking more liquids before you sleep or taking caffeine with pop, coffee or tea.Are you on any medications? Your doctor may want to make sure your kidny/renal function tests are normal if the above do not apply.
