Your Nighttime Trips to the Bathroom Could Signal Nocturia
According to a study conducted at Michigan State University, only 67% of people use soap when washing their hands after using the bathroom. If you’re not washing your hands every time you use the restroom, then you risk taking pathogens such as E. Coli, hepatitis home with you.
It’s important to also be mindful of other bathroom habits, such as how often you go to the bathroom at night. If you find yourself waking up multiple times to use the bathroom, you may have nocturia. Take a look at our infographic below to learn more about this condition.
If you think you or a loved one may have nocturia, it is highly advised you dicuss symptoms with a health care provider.
