Quality of sleep in patients with Benign Prostate Hyperplasia

Muhammad Zahid, Amber Tahir Siddiqui.

Abstract
Objective: To assess sleep quality in patients with benign prostate hyperplasia (BPH).
Methodology: The study enrolled 135 men diagnosed with BPH. All completed two instruments – International Prostate Symptom Score (IPSS) to measure the severity of BPH and Pittsburg Sleep Quality Index (PSQI) to measure the sleep quality. Data were analyzed using SPSS v. 22.
Results: Mean age was 69.12±11.258 years (range 65–80). The most common lower urinary tract symptoms were increased urinary frequency (89.6%) and nocturia (85.9%). Mild BPH was present in 50.37%, moderate in 34.07% and severe BPH was seen in 15.5% men. 31.8% were “unhappy” with their overall quality of life. Patients with mild BPH had the least PSQI score indicating higher sleep quality; severe BPH had highest PSQI indicating lower quality of sleep.
Conclusion: Benign prostate hyperplasia reduces the overall quality of life and sleep efficiency. It is a manageable condition and timely intervention can help maintain a healthy quality of life in these patients.

Key words: Benign prostatic hyperplasia, BPH, nocturia, sleep quality, quality of life, PSQI, IPSS.
