2016 Kickoff to Men’s Health Big Screen Event set for Sept. 13

By: Arkansas Urology

LITTLE ROCK (Aug. 24, 2016) – Men are invited to the 12th annual Kickoff to Men’s Health Big Screen Event on Tuesday, Sept. 13, from 5-8 p.m. to receive a free, potentially lifesaving, preventative screening. Those attending will also have a chance to meet NASCAR driver Mark Martin. This event is hosted by Arkansas Urology and Epoch Health in observance of National Prostate Cancer Awareness Month and will be held at Arkansas Urology’s Little Rock campus, located at 1300 Centerview Drive.

Each man will receive a free comprehensive men’s health screening, including a combination PSA-DRE prostate exam. Arkansas Urology and Epoch Health physicians will check for potential heart, blood pressure, kidney, bladder and metabolism problems. Physicians will also assess vitamin, nutrient, LH, FSH and hormone levels (including testosterone, estrogen, thyroid function and prolactin), as well as conduct DNA tests for hypercoagulability, screenings for potential internal bleeding and urinalyses.

Arkansas Urology and Epoch Health will also give away a flat-screen TV every 20 minutes to men who get screened.

Men are encouraged to call 501-219-8900 to schedule an appointment. Screening results may be mailed to participants or specific results from a healthcare provider may be relayed by phone.

“Last year’s event offered more than 400 men information about their health – information they may not have had if not for this free screening event,” said Dr. Tim Langford, president of Arkansas Urology. “We’re proud to host this annual event that raises awareness of the importance of men’s health and provides a safe and supportive environment for men who may be hesitant to come in for a screening. We’re also very excited that Mark Martin will be at the event this year to sign autographs, meet fans and talk about the importance of men’s health.”

Kickoff to Men’s Health Big Screen Event in Little Rock is also sponsored by CHI St. Vincent. More information about this year’s event is available at ArkansasUrology.com.

What You Should Know About Stress Incontinence

By: Arkansas Urology

Stress can have a profound impact on your health. Many physical conditions can be brought on or worsened by stress. However, in some cases it might not mean what you think.

While stress urinary incontinence is a very real condition, it may not exactly be what you think. Stress incontinence happens when physical movement or activity (coughing, sneezing, running or heavy lifting) puts pressure on your bladder and causes urine leakage. It’s not actually related to psychological or emotional stress. In this case, stress simply refers to the pressure that’s put on your bladder.

With stress urinary incontinence, the condition can be caused or worsened by pregnancy, childbirth, illnesses that cause chronic sneezing or coughing, prostate surgery, obesity and smoking.

The main symptom of stress incontinence is leakage of urine during movement or physical activity. If you find yourself having a sudden urge to urinate, going more often or even having some leakage before you get there, these could be signs of overactive bladder. Symptoms of overactive bladder can be worsened by stress.

With overactive bladder and stress urinary incontinence, some general lifestyle changes may help the conditions. Your doctor may recommend pelvic floor exercises and/or medication. Bladder training may also be a recommended treatment. This involves stretching out the intervals between your trips to the restroom. You gradually try to lengthen the time between bathroom trips.

Thankfully, incontinence can be treated and, in most cases, corrected or improved so that it is no longer a health and social problem. This treatment can be through medications, special exercises or surgery, which is less common and is for only those who have tried other treatments first.

If you have more concerns about the symptoms you have been experiencing, we recommend consulting with a urologist. You can give us a call at 1-877-321-8452.

Travel Tips for Overactive Bladder

By: Arkansas Urology

As fun and rewarding as traveling can be, if not planned properly, it can also be incredibly stressful. This stress can be compounded when you’re faced with the possibility of traveling with overactive bladder. Take a little time to plan your trip and ease your mind with these five tips!

1. Plan AheadTraveling with Overactive Bladder

Take a look at a map of where you are headed before you get there to know where potential restroom stops are located. You can also check some hotels and resorts for restroom locations as well. Know ahead of time if you are driving, flying, or traveling by train so you can prepare with your transportation schedule in mind.

2. Stop Smart, Stop Often

While in everyday life it is better to slowly train your bladder to “hold it,” when you are on a trip, you don’t want to have to worry about when you will be able to find a bathroom next. When traveling, go ahead and use the restroom any time it is convenient, especially before you board a plane or when you know the next opportunity won’t come for an hour and a half or more.

3. Choose Your Seating Wisely

On a plane, at a restaurant, or attending a show can easily lead to you being stuck away from a restroom for an extended period of time. Sitting near the exit or the restroom will make getting up more comfortable for you, and less disruptive for your neighbors.

4. Think Before You Drink

Caffeine in coffee, sugar in sodas, and alcohol in wine and beer are all diuretics, meaning they can irritate your bladder and increase urge to urinate. When traveling to and from your destinations, water should be your drink of choice.

Guzzling water can lead to frequent bathroom breaks, but you should also avoid becoming dehydrated in an attempt to control your bladder. Not enough water will lead to concentrated urine, which is also a diuretic and can cause urinary tract infections, ouch! Avoid dehydration entirely by taking small sips of water at a consistent pace throughout the day.

5. Try Travel Medications

If you are seriously concerned about your OAB negatively affecting your vacation experience, there are effective medications available. While it is not recommended that you take these medications for an extended period of time, you can talk to your doctor about temporary medications for your trip to give you peace of mind.

If you have any questions or need to talk to one of our specialists, call 1-877-321-8452.

Kidney Stone Season

By: Arkansas Urology

Summertime is sometimes known as “kidney stone season,” and for good reason. We often see a sharp rise in kidney stone patients during this time of year.

The main cause for kidney stones, and the reason there are so many in the summer, is dehydration. Sweating leads to water loss, and water loss leads to decreased urination. When the body is unable to eliminate excess minerals through urination, these minerals can settle and form stones. The simple solution? Drink more water!

Kidney stones have increased by as much as 30 percent in the past decade. Of the four main types of kidney stones, calcium-based stones make up 80 percent of all stones treated. Too much calcium in the diet, however, is very rarely the cause of stones. Rather, you should exercise caution when taking calcium supplements. It is best to only take calcium supplements with the approval of your doctor.

Watch out for those summertime barbecue foods! The second biggest cause for kidney stones, after dehydration, is a diet high in protein, salt and sugar. Make sure to monitor your intake of these, and keep your diet full of fresh vegetables and whole grains.

The good news is that treatment for most small stones can be as simple as drinking lots of fluids and taking pain relievers. The recommended fluid intake for stone treatment and prevention is two liters or around nine cups per day.

Remember that if you get one kidney stone you can be prone to get them again, that’s why it’s so important to know what causes them and how to prevent reoccurrence.

If you have more questions or need to talk to someone at our offices, call 1-877-321-8452.
