Acupuncture can help Nocturia

Acupuncture can help nocturia.

A small pilot study undertaken by researchers in Turkey suggests that acupuncture can help nocturia (night time trips to the toilet). A total of 35 patients, 23 women and 12 men, ranging in age from 28 to 72, were given acupuncture every two days for a total of ten sessions. By the end of the trial, 60% of patients reported that their nocturia had resolved completely, with a 37% finding that it had reduced to once per night.
