Bladder and Urinary Problems

Bladder and Urinary ProblemsThe loss of bladder control or urinary incontinence can be an embarrassing problem, which can cause physical and emotional problems and prevent you from enjoying life.

Causes

Bladder and urinary problems may get worse due to age, menopause, pregnancy, or physical changes as a result of hormonal changes and increased weakness of the bladder muscles.

  • Women are more likely to develop bladder and urinary problems, as the tube from the bladder is shorter and may become weak over time, causing leakage.
  • The problem may affect men who have had their prostate removed.

Symptoms

People suffering from urinary incontinence are troubled with frequent leakage and thus are unable to lead normal lives.

  • Frequent urine leakage
  • Sudden urge or feeling to urinate without being able to pass urine
  • Involuntary leakage
  • Blood in the urine
  • Burning sensation during urination

Treatment

Making lifestyle changes and improving hygiene can surely help people fighting urinary infection. Reducing intake of spicy food, stopping smoking, cutting down on caffeine intake and reducing alcohol consumption may help you in managing bladder and urinary problems. Research proves that a number of dietary supplements can reduce the risk of urinary infections, making it difficult for harmful bacteria to stick to bladder lining.
