    Pre-bed shake & GH

    Hi,

    I was wondering: every night before I go to bed, I drink a casein shake, which makes me get up once or occasionally twice each night.
    Now, since GH takes a couple of hours to peak during sleep, does getting up to go the toilet interfere with this? Will my body still produce enough GH afterwards, or does it have to start over again with the GH-release?

    Thanks!

    do not concern yourself with acute spikes in hormones. you are fine, your body is producing enough hormones (short of a disorder)

    I know I don't have a disorder, but are there any studies conducted about this topic?
    I'm a medical student, so it's also interesting to know whether getting up at night would disadvantage recovery (muscle, injury, sickness, studying, …) in persons, even though they don't have any hormonal disorders?

    How much liquid are you drinking later in the day? One casein shake shouldn't be making you have to get up multiple times

    I drink about 5 litres a day (thirsty a lot), but I was just wondering about getting up at night, not about the casein per se.

    If your drinking a significant amount of liquids later in the day it could be a factor. My point was that one shake shouldn't really be making you get up, unless you have an overactive bladder or something.

    But yeah getting up once or twice at night probably isn't going to cause any drastic changes, other than make sleep less enjoyable. GH peaking really isn't of any concern at all.
