Thank you John, for all the information,
Excessive intake of soda can cause bloating, gas.
There can be a feeling of fullness.
Excessive intake of tea,coffee or alcohol can have a diuretic effect & increase the flow of urine.
You can take plain water instead.
There can be a few other causes which can cause you to get up excessively at night for passing urine.
There can be enlarged prostate.
Diabetes, an urinary infection, heart failure, obstructive sleep apnea etc. can cause it.
In diabetes the stomach may have delayed emptying.
I would suggest to consult your doctor & discuss those issues.
If you have not been checked for any of those recently then he can take tests & evaluate.
I hope this information helps.
I will be happy to assist, if you need any clarification.
Please feel free for any follow up query.
Best wishes.
