Changes to neurological drive, diuresis at night, cognition, circadian rhythm and impaired mobility all contribute to nocturnal LUTS (nLUTS) in older people. The clinically-relevant comorbid conditions in frail patients that predispose to nLUTS vary but include nocturnal polyuria, sleep disruption, neurogenic/ overactive/ underactive bladder, increased bladder outlet resistance, poor general health and slow walking speed. Additional risk factors for nLUTS are conferred by acute and chronic illness interacting with medications. Assessment and individualised treatment for nocturnal LUTS during hospitalisation is not routine, however, the admission period may provide a window to identify, diagnose and begin intervention to reduce nocturia and related nLUTS.
