Is obstructive sleep apnea syndrome related to nocturia?

ObjectiveThe aim of this study was to investigate the relationship between obstructive sleep apnea syndrome (OSAS) and lower urinary tract symptoms (LUTS) in patients with benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH).MethodsThis multicenter study was performed on 122 male patients with dyspnea and/or sleep disorder. Patient characteristics were recorded. All patients underwent full ‐night polysomnography, and the apnea–hypopnea index (AHI) was calculated. LUTS were evaluated using the International Prostate Symptom Score (IPSS) and prostate volume was calculated by transabdominal ultrasonography. Based on the AHI, patients were classified as normal or as having mild, moder ate, or severe OSAS. Regression analyses were performed to identify independent predictive factors associated with nocturia.ResultsSevere, moderate, and mild OSAS was present in 53, nine, and 46 patients, respectively, where 14 patients with dyspnea and sleep disorder were classified as normal. There were no significant differences between the severe and mild OSAS groups with regard to age, body mass index, systolic and diastolic blood pressure, smoking history, fluid intake, and serum creatinine and glucose concentrations. However, there was a significant difference between two groups in AHI (P

“We’re not as healthy as we should be.” That’s what Fitbit CEO and co-founder James Park said at Thursday’s TIME 100 Health Summit, where MSNBC anchor Stephanie Ruhle interviewed him about the company’s future in the health care space, the impact of wearables and just how active Fitbit’s 30 million active users really are. Ruhle talked with Park about Fitbit’s position as one of the first major wearables company to have gone public, one that led the charge in terms of mass market adoption but has lost ground to competitors offering more advanced wearable devices, as well as ...

During the first TIME 100 Health Summit on Thursday, NBA commissioner Adam Silver said that he’s willing to deal with the business consequences of Daryl Morey’s Oct. 4 tweet supporting protesters in Hong Kong. The Houston Rockets general manager angered the Chinese government and caused Chinese sponsors to pull away from the NBA during two exhibition games there last week. Silver said the league is “not only willing” to cope with losses of millions in revenues, “but we are. The losses have already been substantial. Our games are not back on the air in China as we speak, and we’ll see wha...

ConclusionOur hypothesis that IH would decrease EE was not corroborated. However, IH and normoxic recovery seem to promote severity-dependent enlargement of visceral adipocytes, likely reflecting altered energy preservation mechanisms induced by IH.

Conclusions Aging leads to a progressive decrease in androgen production that, in turn, leads to the development of LOH, defined by significant low T serum levels (in the lowest quartile) in the presence of signs and symptoms of hypogonadism (51). LOH could be due to both testicular and hypothalamic-pituitary dysfunction (32), and ED is one of its main symptoms. ED in LOH is linked to increased oxidative stress, subclinical inflammation, and subsequent endothelial dysfunction (101). In elderly men, it has been shown that LOH is also linked to lower cAMP pool and to an alteration of the cGMP signaling pathway. PDE5 gene l...

ConclusionsThis pilot study demonstrated the feasibility and potential utility of an mHealth platform to assist clinicians, within a men's health clinic, in detecting sleep disturbances. Disrupted sleep was revealed in well over half of this sample of patients. As a result of the growing evidence linking poor sleep and sleep disorders (eg, OSA) to the conditions relevant to men's health (eg, erectile dysfunction, hypogonadism and BPH), further efforts beyond this pilot study are necessary to identify the aetiological processes underlying the association between specific disrupted sleep disorders and urological conditions.

Conclusions BPH or diuretic use did not affect adherence with CPAP therapy in obstructive sleep apnea. Severity of nocturia did not have any influence on adherence among the cases. BPH, regardless of the severity of nocturia, and diuretic use does not influence CPAP adherence in patients with OSA.
