This insight looks at how often you wake up in the night to go to the bathroom. Going to the bathroom at night too often can decrease sleep quality and put you at a higher risk for falls and other problems.
Current medical guidelines report that regularly waking up to go to the bathroom two or more times is “clinically significant” – meaning that you could benefit from exploring treatment options with your doctor. Treatment can include lifestyle changes to the timing and types of fluids you drink, as well as medications.
When looking at the bathroom insight, something to consider is how much water, caffeine, and alcohol you had the previous evening. These can all make you use the bathroom more and can usually be resolved on your own. Also consider challenges you experience while going to the bathroom, such as pain, burning, straining, and unusual colours. These findings may suggest that there is an underlying problem to explore with your doctor.
