Less pee during sleep
Hello for as far as I can remember in my adult life I wake up twice a night to pee and I counted the seconds I pee, it was usually 40 to 60 seconds of pee per instance. I was diagnosed with diabetes age 32 and I am now 47. I had been on diabetes meds but because of sedentary lifestyle and diet (since then I did not research about my health and had no resources then), my diabetes was mostly 8 to 14 in hba1c. Since an accident last September, I had the fear of my life, I thought I had new blockages in the brain due to artheroschlerosis. My doctor ruled out cholesterol, heart and blood pressure as these are under control, only the blood sugar is the likely culprit. This is the wake up call for me, I changed my lifestyle, walked 6,000 to 10,000 steps a day, ate food with veggies and fruits and then lost some 15 lbs to reach a BMI of 23.1. My latest hba1c is 6.1 and as per doctor, that is good. The readings by the way when MRI scanned was done was no blockages on brain arteries as well as artheroschlerosis.
Now, I was able to sleep with waking up to pee once, or at times I do not wake up with the urge to pee at all except in the morning and upon fully waking up. I am just afraid if this is kidney disease or as a result of my diabetes improvement. Since I altered my lifestyle I peed only once a night but for the past three days, I do not have the urge to pee when I wake up at night, so I can continue sleeping continuously.
