Dr Oz: Night Waking To Pee
Dr Oz said the number one reason people wake up in the middle of the night is to pee. One man was so tired of his wife’s late night pee break that he recorded her, and his wife had no idea. He shared that his wife got up at 1:15 a.m. and he actually recorded the sound of his wife’s bathroom break to make a point about how loud and disturbing it is.
Dr Oz then revealed that a man in the audience wasn’t safe either because his wife recorded him. At 1:45 a.m., he got up to use the restroom, waking her up, and she recorded it to show that he was using the restroom for 17 seconds. “Sounds like a hose watering grass,” she said in the video.
Dr Oz then shared the sound of a noisy pee stream, surprising one of the husbands in the audience who said he was trying to drink more water to be healthy. His wife shared that he wakes her up about three times in the middle of the night.
Dr Oz: Is Your Urine Stream Normal?
Dr Oz then welcomed all three couples to come down and join him at his “urination station” to figure out if their nightly pee breaks are normal. Dr Oz wanted to talk about the strength of the stream, saying if you have a light stream, it’s a concern. A weak stream could be a sign of a UTI if you’re a woman, and if you’re a man it could be a sign of a prostate problem.
If you have a consistently strong stream it may be a sign of high blood sugar or diabetes. Either way, you should see a doctor to check out.
Dr Oz: Wake Less At Night To Pee
Dr Oz said it’s normal to go to the bathroom once a night, but more than that means there could be a problem. Dr Oz suggested that you actually pee as soon as you start your bedtime routine, which typically lasts about 45 minutes, and then go one more time right before bed to train your body and get a better night’s sleep.
