Diabetes and Urology: How Are They Related?

By: Arkansas Urology

Did you know diabetes and urology are actually closely related to one another? Diabetics can be more at risk for urinary tract infections (UTIs) and other urinary functions such as overactive bladder. Most people with diabetes either have hyperactive or underactive muscles that push urine out of your body, so that sets up for bladder issues.

Diabetes is the most common cause of kidney failure too and is often referred to as diabetic kidney disease. The main things to keep an eye out for when it comes to your urological health are your bladder and kidneys. If there is not enough insulin in the bloodstream it has the potential to harm your kidneys. As a result, it can be difficult to sense when to use the restroom which when not emptied can allow for bacteria to grow.

Adopting healthy choices into your everyday life can help to improve and maintain your urological health. Eating a healthy diet, exercising and getting enough rest are all positive contributing factors and are a great place to begin on improving your health.

Remember, if you are experiencing any urological issues it is best to consult with your doctor to keep your blood sugar levels in range. Also, if you are experiencing sexual dysfunction in addition to bladder control concerns, be sure to tell your doctor. They can help diagnose and prescribe treatment plans specific to your needs.

Why You Shouldn't Hold Your Pee

By: Arkansas Urology

Do you ever find yourself working long hours and skip your chance for a bathroom break? Do you often end up “holding it” for an extended time? This can cause damage to your bladder.

Remember when you were young and your parents would say “you can come back and play but you need to go to the bathroom?” We tend to forget this simple rule when it comes to emptying our bladders.

Your bladder can hold about two cups of urine. Even though your bladder can hold slightly more if needed, it’s a bad idea to push it beyond its capacity. Using the restroom when needed is a major health factor that most forget about.

Don’t ignore your body telling you to go. Holding your bladder for long periods of time can have adverse effects like UTIs or other issues. Bladders that aren’t emptied when needed can lead to renal failure due to electrolyte issues since metabolic waste leaves the body when urinating.

If you have an enlarged prostate, it can lead to retaining urine involuntarily. This may make it difficult to use the bathroom.

You should not make a habit of holding your urine all the time. Find a way to take short bathroom breaks. If you know that your work schedule is hectic, take advantage of down times even when you don’t feel the need to go. Or set reminders if you get busy and distracted for short breaks. For the sake of your health, don’t just hold it!

If you are experiencing bladder issues, we can help. Contact us to schedule an appointment with one of our expert doctors.

What to Know About Erectile Dysfunction

By: Arkansas Urology

Contrary to popular belief, erectile dysfunction is not a normal part of aging, and age doesn't factor in as much as you might think. However, there are a few things that you can do to prevent it.

There is not one single thing that causes erectile dysfunction, rather it can be a combination of many things. While this affects men of all ages, it is more common in older men. A few factors that contribute to this are:

  • Stress, depression, anxiety
  • Smoking, drugs, drinking
  • Lack of exercise
  • Diabetes, high blood pressure and high cholesterol
  • Nerve disorders
  • Certain medications

Often, it is not one isolated issue, rather they are combined physical and physiological issues that affect the ability to get and sustain an erection. While erectile dysfunction can have a less than positive impact on your sex life, it can be treated.

There are several options that can help whether it’s lifestyle changes, medications or remedies. Working out, eating a healthier diet, reducing stress and finding someone to talk about anxiety or depression are all good things that can help prevent erectile dysfunction.

The good news is that you don’t have to live with ED. There are treatments available to help maintain your sex life. Don’t be afraid to ask for help from a trusted physician. Since erectile dysfunction can have several underlying causes, such as heart disease, it is best to consult with a doctor who can help.

6 Facts About Prostate Cancer

By: Arkansas Urology

Prostate cancer is one of the most common cancers. Yet, it is also one of the most treatable types of cancer today. Because of that, there are ways you can educate yourself about the disease and learn how to cope with a possible diagnosis. Here are six facts about prostate cancer:

1. More than 200,000 men are diagnosed annually with prostate cancer, and an estimated 30,000 of these will die of the disease.

2. About one in nine men in the U.S. will be diagnosed with prostate cancer in their lifetime, and about one in 41 will die of it. Prostate cancer is serious, but most men diagnosed do not die from it.

3. Prostate cancer is the most common cancer among American men, second only to skin cancer, and is the second leading cause of cancer death in men, behind lung cancer.

4. Not all prostate cancers are alike. More than 90 percent are found when they are confined to the prostate gland, and while some spread early and require treatment, many others are slow-growing and are unlikely to cause serious problems during a man’s lifetime.

5. The prostate-specific antigen test (PSA) measures the level of a protein produced by the prostate that circulates in a man’s blood. When there is a problem with the prostate, PSA levels are higher. For example, men who have a common condition called benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) may have elevated PSA levels (BPH is not cancer).

6. Changing your diet and exercise regimen can help to reduce your risk of prostate cancer. Try to avoid consuming alcohol, caffeine and sodium. Be sure to check with your doctor before making any major changes to your diet.
