Once I hit my mid 40’s, I noticed a marked increase in the number of times I had to use the bathroom. I even get up in the middle of the night to pee on a regular basis. I got to wondering why this was happening to me, so I googled it.
When you are young your body produces a hormone that will concentrate your urine. This allows you to sleep all night without needing a bathroom break. Unfortunately, as we age we produce less of this hormone.
If you are up in years and wondering why you have to pee all the time, now you know.
