Need to urinate at night

When you lie down in bed at night, the fluid, which has built up in your legs during the day, can move back into your bloodstream and is taken to your kidneys to be eliminated as waste urine.

Going to the toilet before you go to bed and limiting the amount you drink in the evening may help reduce the number of times you have to get up at night to urinate.
