The reason for this could be emotional problems, poor habits that keep you awake or it could be for medical reasons.
From time to time, we may experience inability to sleep. This is normal and a temporary situation which may have been triggered off by stress,excessive intake of coffee etc. But a situation where inability to sleep becomes a regular occurrence that interferes with our everyday life, it is a sleep disorder.
The importance of sleep to the human body cannot be over emphasized. .This is because;
The urinary tract starts at the kidney, continues as a tube[the ureter] between the kidney and the bladder, expands as the bladder and then goes on as a tube between the bladder and the out side.
Infection of the urinary tract is usually due to the spread of bacteria from the outside up along the uretha to infect the bladder and then in most cases , up along the urether to affect the kidney.
A woman has a shorter urethra than a man and therefore is more likely to develop infection of the bladder.
