BiPap Use and Frequency of Night time Urination
#1
BiPap Use and Frequency of Night time Urination
I am a fairly new user of BiPap and Oscar. I have been using the Bipap machine regularly for the last 3 months and have noticed that I no longer get up in night for urination at all.  In the past, I used to get up 4 to 6 times a night. There must be some correlation between Sleep Apnea and frequency of night time urination.  The upside of using the BiPap machine is that I no longer take Flowmax and Finistride meds, they put me on these meds about three months ago that I did not like at all, and now I am completely med free. I do have some serious difficulties with large leaks from my full-face mask, but trying to learn how to minimize the leaks.

Are there any other users of CPap/BiPap who are also observing similar pattern?

RE: BiPap Use and Frequency of Night time Urination
Sleep apnea stresses the body and can raise the blood pressure. Like a pressure cooker that lets off steam in order to maintain a safe pressure, the body releases fluids to try and achieve the same thing. That's why the first blood pressure drugs were diuretics. They are still in use today. Using the CPAP removed, or at east lessened, the stress on the body, thus reducing the need for it to try and self-correct for the pressure.
