Disease Story and Diagnosis of Nocturnal Polyuria

Nocturnal polyuria is the production of an abnormally large volume of urine during sleep at night. For some people, there might be a disruption in the production of the hormone called arginine vasopressin (AVP). 

AVP increases the resorption of water from the kidney. If your body does not make enough AVP at night, urine production will increase.

This is what makes you get out of bed to urinate.
