Melatonin - Nighttime Urinary Frequency Help

Nighttime urination frequency (nocturia), although not exclusively, is common among the elderly. Urinary frequency interferes with daily activities but at night it can result in sleep disturbances that can cause daytime fatigue as well as worsening the quality of life. Melatonin supplements can help.

In order to investigate which factors were strongly related to the occurrence of nocturia, researchers performed a series of examinations in elderly persons who had nocturia without any other diseases and a young control group. The result was that sleep disturbances showed a decrease in nighttime melatonin levels as one of the major factors contributing to nocturia in the elderly.

Secretion of melatonin, a pineal gland hormone, follows a diurnal rhythm, with almost all urine production at night. Melatonin has inhibitory effects on smooth muscle contractility of the mammalian bladder. Therefore, melatonin could play a key role in nocturnal regulation of urination.
