When it comes to urinary system, it is not only [kidney] and prostate gland. Why do some people always love toilets and some people can’t hold their urine? These may be related to bladder diseases.
Today, Dr. Clove will talk about several categories of people who are prone to bladder diseases.
I. Women: Beware of Acute Cystitis
Acute cystitis is very [partial] to women, especially married women. If women suddenly urinate frequently, urgently and painfully, acute cystitis is often the main culprit.
This is because women’s urethra is short and close to vagina and anus, so bad living habits or vaginitis often affect urethra.
To prevent urethral infection, attention should be paid to keeping underpants dry, bathing in advance and urinating immediately afterwards.
All women should pay attention to the fact that once frequent urination, urgent urination, painful urination, even hematuria and pyuria occur, they must go to the urological department of the hospital immediately.
If urinary tract infection recurs, you should go to the hospital to check other possible diseases including hymen umbrella disease and chronic cystitis.
Second, sedentary people in the office: bladder stones find you
Sitting for several hours, lacking exercise and drinking water, is it a true portrayal of you sitting in the office?
Be careful, such office habits will make you a high risk group for urinary calculi.
Although the incidence of upper urinary calculi such as kidney and ureter is significantly higher than that of lower urinary calculi such as bladder and urethra. However, if urethral stricture and prostatic hyperplasia occur at the same time, the incidence of bladder calculi is greatly increased.
For bladder stones, the incidence rate of men is generally higher than that of women. If there is discomfort in the lower abdomen, frequent urination and urgent urination accompanied by interruption of urination, you should go to urology to eliminate whether you have bladder stones.
III. Elderly Male: Bladder and Prostate Disease
For elderly men, the problem of prostatic hyperplasia cannot be ignored.
Bladder is the human body’s urine storage organ, prostatic hyperplasia will lead to urine cannot be emptied, bladder residual urine volume increases. Over time, it will lead to bladder wall thickening, detrusor and its innervation nerve dysfunction, bladder trabecula, small chamber and bladder diverticulum formation.
The most serious bladder dysfunction may lead to filling urinary incontinence: constantly trying to go to the toilet, but only a few drops of urine can be dropped at a time.
Many people will mistake this for frequent urination, but in fact it is because the whole bladder is filled with urine, but people do not want to urinate. Finally, urine exceeds the maximum storage capacity of the bladder and spills out of the urethra, which will seriously endanger renal function.
Four, two treasure mother: pay attention to urinary incontinence
Urinary incontinence means that the bladder [cannot control] urinates:
When laughing, coughing, running or other sports, or even inadvertently soaking urine in underpants, this is the most common stress urinary incontinence.
This situation is more common in mothers who have given birth to more than one baby, especially [heroic mothers] who have given birth to multiple births. Other factors such as age, obesity and pelvic visceral prolapse may induce or aggravate urinary incontinence.
Some mothers do not regard urinary incontinence as a disease, which makes it easy to miss the opportunity of early pelvic floor muscle training and drug treatment, and finally rely on surgical treatment.
Five, smokers: hematuria is a silent accusation of bladder
Hematuria is also one of the symptoms of urinary system that are most concerned by the general population.
Hematuria, if there are symptoms such as lumbago, abdominal pain and urinary pain at the same time, is often caused by trauma, inflammation and stones.
However, if gross hematuria suddenly occurs without obvious inducement, but there are no other manifestations such as pain, it is often the early clinical manifestation of bladder cancer. Once found, you should seek medical treatment immediately.
In our country, the incidence of bladder cancer is getting younger and younger, and smoking is the most important inducement. Not only that, smoking can also cause chronic cystitis of urinary system, erectile dysfunction, etc.
Therefore, in order to have a healthy urinary system, the best choice for smokers is to quit smoking.
Six, other special groups of bladder disease prevention
Diabetes is the most harmful of all chronic diseases.
If diabetics find that their urination has changed, such as frequent urination, weak urination and endless urination, they may as well go to urology for a bladder function examination, because diabetic bladder dysfunction is one of the important causes of neurogenic bladder.
Dr. Clove specifically suggested that drug addicts, or those with a history of drug abuse, should check their urinary system, especially their bladder, as soon as possible. Because of drug abuse, it hurts the whole body’s function.
For example, ketamine-related cystitis caused by K powder can still be cured if it can be found and treated in the early stage. However, if it develops to the late stage, bladder fibrosis, bladder contracture and bladder calcification occur, even surgery cannot achieve good curative effect at this time.
