Nocturia is a common symptom, especially in older adults. It is commonly framed as a lower urinary tract symptom and we frequently think of a limited range of aetiologies (usually benign prostatic hypertrophy and overactive bladder). However, for many patients, nocturia is due to one or more other conditions including endocrine causes, drug side effects and nocturnal polyuria.
