How is OAB Diagnosed?

By: Arkansas Urology

Overactive bladder can certainly affect your quality of life, but it’s nothing to be ashamed of and you aren’t alone. If you find yourself urinating more often than usual or having leaking accidents, don’t hesitate to contact your doctor right away. To get a proper diagnosis, your doctor will begin with a complete health history to learn when your symptoms started and whether or not you have other urinary conditions.

You should keep a diary and record how much you drink, how often you urinate, and how urgently you feel the need to urinate each day. This will help you accurately answer any questions your doctor may have. Your doctor will examine your pelvis, abdomen, genitals and rectum, and likely perform a few tests to diagnose overactive bladder. These include:

  • Urinalysis or urine sample
  • Urodynamic testing
  • Cystoscopy to detect cysts and growths in the bladder

These tests will help your doctor determine what is causing your overactive bladder, which will help him or her decide on the best treatment for your unique situation. When it comes to treatment, options range from behavior and lifestyle modifications to medication and sacral nerve stimulation with Interstim or Axonics.

If you’re suffering from overactive bladder, don’t spend another day embarrassed or uncomfortable. Millions of people suffer from the condition, and you shouldn’t feel ashamed to ask for help. Rushing to the restroom, wetting accidents and adult diapers can be a thing of the past. Experience relief from your symptoms...our team is here for you every step of the way.

At Arkansas Urology, we’re here for you. Our patients’ health has been and will always be our top priority! Would you like to learn more about overactive bladder treatment options? Contact us today to schedule your appointment, or book your appointment online.

Can Wine Prevent Kidney Stones?

By: Arkansas Urology

While there isn’t specific scientific proof that wine prevents kidney stones from forming, certain studies have shown that both red and white wines can have a positive effect on kidney health. When it comes to alcohol, wine in particular seems to reduce the risk of kidney stones more than a variety of other alcoholic beverages.

Since alcohol is a diuretic, it causes our kidneys to produce more urine and remove excess fluids. This may contribute to the prevention of stones, but you should make sure you’re drinking plenty of water while enjoying your wine. Also, an unrelated benefit of drinking red wine is that it may lower your risk of heart disease due to antioxidants like resveratrol.

Although excessive alcohol consumption can cause kidney stones, drinking wine in moderation just might play a role in preventing them from forming. While wine may break down and provide your body with useful antioxidants, you shouldn’t overdo it. It’s important to remember that moderation is key when it comes to drinking any type of alcoholic beverage.

If you want to take it a step further when it comes to prevention, be sure to drink a lot of water. Staying properly hydrated is one of the single most important things you can do to prevent kidney stones. You should also avoid salty foods, sodas, and foods high in oxalate like beets, berries, peanuts, and chocolate. While you’re at it, cut down the amount of animal protein you consume in order to prevent the formation of uric acid stones.

We know all too well how painful kidney stones can be, and we don’t want them to ruin your holiday fun! If you have any questions about kidney stones, don’t hesitate to reach out to your urologist.

Do you suffer from kidney stones? At Arkansas Urology, our team of physicians is dedicated to helping you get healthy, stay healthy and live the life you want. Schedule an appointment online or give us a call today at 1-800-255-1762.

What is Peyronie's Disease?

By: Arkansas Urology

Peyronie’s disease is a condition in which fibrous scar tissue forms under the skin of the penis, causing painful, curved erections. Common symptoms of Peyronie’s disease include soft erections, feeling lumps in the penis, pain during sexual intercourse, shortening of the penis and having trouble maintaining an erection. While some men are still able to have sex and don’t experience pain, other men have difficulties with the disease.

A risk factor associated with Peyronie’s disease is genetics, but genetics alone doesn’t cause it. It’s often caused by some sort of minor or repeated injury to the penis. Age and cardiovascular health may also play a role in the development of the condition. It can certainly have an effect on your sex life if it goes untreated, and that understandably leads to anxiety and stress. The good news is you can get help and find relief.

If you’re suffering from this condition, don’t be embarrassed to reach out to your doctor. He or she will be able to help you decide on the best treatment for your unique situation. Most of the time this can be diagnosed by a simple physical examination.

Some common treatment options include medication, injections, lifestyle changes and surgery. Quitting smoking, exercising regularly and reducing the amount of alcohol you drink may help prevent erectile dysfunction related to the disease. Certain medications may also be beneficial. However, if symptoms don’t improve after a certain period of time, surgery may be necessary. Your doctor will help you decide on the best route to take. The important thing is to seek help soon for the condition and don’t be afraid to talk to your doctor about what you’ve been experiencing.

Peyronie’s disease can be painful and put a strain on your relationships, but don’t lose hope or put treatment on the back burner. At Arkansas Urology, our team of physicians is dedicated to helping you get healthy, stay healthy and live the life you want. Schedule an appointment online or give us a call today at 1-800-255-1762.
