How Fitness Affects Your Health

By: Arkansas Urology

 

May is National Fitness Month. We understand that with some conditions you may not feel like exercising or that you might not think that it has much affect. Think again. Exercise is hardly ever a bad idea no matter what your condition. 

Exercise Fitness

Exercise, like other healthy habits such as a balanced diet, will boost your overall health. It will help you not gain weight and keep your blood pressure in check. Exercising can also help you deal better with stress. Doing something that is good for your overall health is definitely going to be good for your bladder and kidneys.

If you have avoided exercise or physical activity in general because of leakage issues, then it’s time to stop. Exercise can actually help with bladder control. Get the right products to help you start an exercise program, but don’t be afraid to get moving.

Aerobic activity such as walking, biking or swimming, is actually the best form of exercise to help your kidneys. Aerobics can help prevent type 2 diabetes, which is the number one cause of kidney failure.

Regular exercisers are proven to have lower levels of creatinine, which is a chemical waste product in the blood. Also, their kidneys were better able to clear creatinine from the bloodstream. In essence, aerobic exercising can lead to better performing kidneys. Of course, too much of a good thing can be a bad thing, so a good, healthy amount of exercise is 30 – 60 minutes per day.

OB/GYN vs. Urologist

By: Arkansas Urology

 

For women, it can be confusing to know what conditions to see an OB/GYN for and what to see a urologist for? Many times if a woman has an established relationship with her OB/GYN, she might be more comfortable going to her with an issue, but is that doctor really going to be the expert on her condition?

It’s not uncommon for women to assume they can see their OB/GYN for most issues that occur below your waistline. However, that’s not the case. OB/GYNs specialize in caring for pregnant women and conditions of the female reproductive system. A urologist sees and treats diseases and disorders relating to the kidney and bladders for both men and women.

For any issue related to your bladder like urinary incontinence or overactive bladder, see a urologist. A urologist sees and treats conditions like these on a daily basis and will be most familiar with them along with the best course of treatment. If you have a urinary stone or infection, a urologist is also the person you should see.

For women who are going through menopause, a gynecologist can help women manage symptoms. However, a urologist can help them with any other health conditions they may experience later on after menopause like pelvic organ prolapse or incontinence.

If you have infertility issues, many times women will consult with their OB/GYN first; however, a urologist can see and treat both partners to discover what the issue may be.

If you’re experiencing general abdominal discomfort, it might be best to consult with your primary care doctor first. He or she can then determine the problem, the cause and what specialist you should see.

5 Myths About Infertility

By: Arkansas Urology

 

April 24 – 30, 2016 is Infertility Awareness Week. Infertility affects more couples than you may realize. Conceiving a child is something that many couples take for granted; however about one in five couples have trouble conceiving after a year of trying.

Here are five common myths about infertility.

Myth #1 – See a doctor if you don’t conceive after three months of trying.
A healthy couple between ages 29 and 33 with normal functional reproductive systems has only a 20-25 percent chance of conceiving in any given month. Most couples will conceive after six months of trying without any kind of assistance. Most experts agree that if you are under 35, then after a year of trying to conceive you should consult with a doctor. If you are over 35, then see your physician after six months.

Myth #2 – In the majority of cases, infertility is the female’s fault.
The fact is that infertility affects both men and women equally. If conceiving is an issue, then both partners should consult with a doctor. It’s best to find the problem as soon as possible.

Myth #3 – Changing your lifestyle habits doesn’t affect your chances of getting pregnant.
Lifestyle decisions definitely affect your ability to conceive. Of course, smoking will decrease fertility for both males and females. Your weight, being overweight or underweight, also affects your chances of having a baby. In fact, 12 percent of all infertility cases are a result of weight issues. If these are factors, changing your habits will definitely help.

Myth #4 – Eating certain foods can help you be more fertile.
There’s not a magic diet that will help you see two lines on a pregnancy test. You don’t have to worry about cutting out caffeine or eating only fish. It’s a lot more important that you have a well-balanced, healthy diet. Eating foods rich in folic acids like leafy green vegetables, beans, and citrus fruits can benefit pregnancy.

Myth #5 – If I see a specialist about infertility that means I’ll have to have in vitro.
The good news is that 85-90 percent of all infertility cases can be treated with drug therapy or surgical procedures. Less than three percent of couples need advanced reproductive technologies, such as in vitro fertilization.

At Arkansas Urology, infertility is one of our specialties. We see couples who are having issues conceiving, determine the cause and help them determine the right treatment for them. Give us a call today to make an appointment or talk with someone in our office, 1-877-321-8452.
