Here's a question I had never thought of asking. Does watching TV or videos during the day affect urination at night? The question itself gives a hint about the answer. Data from more than thirteen thousand participants in the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey found those who had five or more hours per day of TV or video time reported forty-eight percent more frequent nighttime urination known as nocturia. Those with less than an hour of screen time did not. Nocturia means interrupted sleep. That, in turn, increases likelihood of a number of diseases. The study suggests behavioral interventions, including screen time management. The research is published in the journal Neurology and Urodynamics.
