DH peeing in the night!!

Random question - my DH is 39 and for the last 18 months can't sleep through the night without getting up for a pee. He says it's normal for his age but I think he's young for this to start. I know men's prostate glands start to grow and cause more frequent urination but that shouldn't be happening for another 10 years!
What's a 'normal' age to not be able to last the night?

If he drinks a lot in the late evening, then it's to be expected.

If he doesn't, then it is unusual.

Dh is 32 and always pees once or twice during the night. He’s had all sorts of tests done and they’ve all come back normal so I think it can just be normal for some people! He does drink a lot of tea and fizzy drinks though so I guess that doesn’t help.

Lots of things might be the reason, apart from the obvious connected with prostrate, kidneys, bladder:
I assume his heart has been checked and diabetes has been excluded?
Does he take medication for other things, sometimes it is a side effect.
Does he snore?
Are his ADH levels OK?

With a relative of mine it turned out to be the latter.
