Nocturia, or the need to get up in the night to urinate, can lead to loss of productivity during the day compared to those who sleep throughout the night, according to a new study presented at the European Association of Urology in Milan.

Researchers at University of Maastricht in the Netherlands analyzed around 640 men and women with the condition and asked them to fill out a questionnaire related to work productivity and activity impairment.

They found that on an average, the participants experienced a 24 percent drop in productivity during the day, which is more than asthma and chronic obtrusive pulmonary disease.

"These data show that nocturia negatively affects both sleep and daytime performance and its impact on work productivity is in line with many other chronic conditions. Patients with nocturia should seek specific treatment for this debilitating condition", lead researcher Philip Van Kerrebroeck said.
