How To Avoid Kidney Stones This Summer

By: Arkansas Urology

 

The summer is often referred to as kidney stone season and for good reason. We all know when it is hot out, our bodies try to cool off by sweating. It’s hard to keep cool when you aren’t properly hydrated. Dehydration is the most common cause of kidney stones. 

Kidney stones are hard clumps of minerals that sometimes form when your body doesn’t have enough natural chemicals in urine that prevent clumping. These clumps, or stones, can be very painful as they move from your kidneys and through your system. They form when the balance of water, salts, minerals and other substances in urine is off because your urine contains more crystal-forming substances like calcium than the fluid in your urine can dilute.

When you aren’t drinking enough water, the body is unable to eliminate excess minerals through urination. When this happens, those minerals can settle and form stones. The simple solution to avoiding kidney stones? Drink more water!

When we think of kidney stones, we often think of what we are drinking, not so much what we are eating. But what we are putting into our bodies is so important! Watch what you eat this summer. Tangy foods like barbecue for example can make kidney stones more likely because they are high in salt, protein and sugar. Fruits and vegetables are your best bet. The best thing you can do this summer is to be proactive rather than reactive. Make sure you are staying hydrated and eating the best food to fuel your body.

Arkansas Urology Offers Innovative Program For Early Detection and Treatment of Enlarged Prostate

By: Arkansas Urology

New Care Pathway Program Uses Data Analytics To Improve Patient Outcomes

LITTLE ROCK, ARK. (PRWEB) JUNE 13, 2018

Arkansas Urology in Little Rock, Arkansas today announced their practice will now offer an innovative BPH Care Pathway program for the early detection and treatment of men with an enlarged prostate also called Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia (BPH). This Care Pathway Program is designed to provide targeted care to men who are at risk for BPH, a condition that affects 50 percent of men over the age of 50.

Arkansas Urology is the only practice in Arkansas to participate in this unique approach that combines patient education with data analytics to determine the best treatment options for men who have or are at risk of developing BPH. Arkansas Urology is recognized as a state-wide leader in providing exemplary care for men suffering from problems associated with Lower Urinary Tract Symptoms (LUTS).

“Many men suffer from the negative side effects of BPH medications and their quality of life is significantly impacted,” said Dr. Tim Langford, President of Arkansas Urology. “We want to give those patients a better alternative and the BPH Care Pathway allows for us to have these conversations. There are treatments available to men that are truly minimally invasive and very effective. We are excited about this approach, which will help men achieve a higher quality of life and also believe this will become the new standard of care used by many physicians.”

Not to be confused with prostate cancer, BPH occurs when the prostate gland that surrounds the male urethra becomes enlarged with advancing age and begins to obstruct the urinary system. Symptoms of BPH often include interrupted sleep and urinary problems, loss of productivity, depression and decreased quality of life.

Medication is often the first-line therapy for enlarged prostate, but relief can be inadequate and temporary. Side effects of medication treatment can include sexual dysfunction, dizziness and headaches, prompting many patients to quit using the drugs. For these patients, the classic alternative is surgery that cuts, heats or removes prostate tissue to open the blocked urethra. While current surgical options can be very effective in relieving symptoms, they can also leave patients with permanent side effects such as urinary incontinence, erectile dysfunction and retrograde ejaculation.

“The BPH Care Pathway empowers patients with more insights into their condition, producing better health outcomes. When a patient is made fully aware of all of their options, everyone benefits,” said E. Scot Davis, CEO of Arkansas Urology. “The program has the potential to reduce overall healthcare expenses as a result of treating patients before symptoms worsen or complications occur.”

Men's Health Month

By: Arkansas Urology

 

This month we are talking all things men. With June being Men’s Health month, we wanted to share how important it is for you to seek regular checkups and be an advocate for your health. Keep reading to see how Arkansas Urology can help you in any and every stage of your health journey.

Testicular cancer is more common in men from ages 15 – 35. While testicular cancer is rare, your risk for it does go up if you have a family history of it. We would recommend mentioning any information you have about your family’s medical history to your doctor on your next visit. The good news is that it’s highly treatable even if cancer has spread somewhat. There is not a typical screening, but we do recommend self-checks, so you can see a doctor early if it starts to develop. Look for a lump, feelings of heaviness or an ache or any pain or discomfort in that area.

Prostate cancer affects older men typically and is the No. 1 cancer risk for men. We recommend prostate cancer screenings starting at age 50. This can be done sooner if you are at higher risk. About one in nine men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer in their lifetimes. The average age of men at the time of their diagnosis is 66.

The five most common cancers for men are prostate, lung, colorectal, bladder and melanoma. At Arkansas Urology, we also treat bladder cancer of those five. There is no typical screening only symptoms to look for, such as blood in your urine, burning pain and needing to go more frequently.

To learn more about the widely accepted treatments available at Arkansas Urology, visit our Prostate Cancer Center. If you or a loved one has been diagnosed with prostate cancer or needs to schedule a screening, give us a call today. We can help you through this journey from diagnosis to treatment, call 1-877-321-8452.
