The constant urge to urinate can be very annoying in everyday life. Important to check: High blood pressure can be the cause, which can be dangerous if left untreated.

If the pressure in the blood vessels is chronically high and can be determined using the systolic and diastolic values, experts speak of high blood pressure or hypertension. Many people do not immediately notice that their blood pressure is too high, or they do not associate possible symptoms with high blood pressure, as one patient told me displays. This is what makes the dangers and possible consequences so dramatic. In addition to sweating, nosebleeds and blurred vision, there is also an increased urge to urinate. Anyone who notices such symptoms should definitely get them checked by a doctor – if high blood pressure is detected too late or untreated, the risk of cardiovascular diseases such as heart attack and stroke is high.

There are various warning signs that can indicate high blood pressure in sufferers – but everyone feels them more or less badly and may not classify them correctly. Dr Udo Zacharzowsky, head physician of the cardiology clinic Helios Klinikum Bad Saarow, emphasizes how important it is for every individual to measure their blood pressure regularly or have it measured by a doctor. In order to prevent further damage, it is important to recognize high blood pressure in time, diagnose it, improve it with lifestyle changes or treat it with medication. Researchers have found that even a diet high in omega-3 fatty acids can lower blood pressure.

Bedwetting can be a sign of high blood pressure. If you notice such symptoms, do not show false shame and talk to your GP – shame can ultimately be life-threatening. If causes such as cystitis and side effects or interactions caused by other drugs can be ruled out, it makes sense to monitor blood pressure, for example with a 24-hour blood pressure measurement.

A constant urge to urinate can also indicate heart failure, which can be manifested especially by nocturnal urination. Due to the limited performance of the heart, there is an increased retention of water in the body. Water collects when you lie down at night and the body tries to flush it out through the bladder.
