LUTS Treatment – What Are Lower Urinary Tract Symptoms In Men?
Do you feel the urges to urinate all the time? The technical term for this problem is called “frequent or constant urination”. Usually, it takes about four to eight times a day a normal person to pass out urine. This is because the bladder is designed to store the urine until it convenient for that person to go to the bathroom. But needing more than eight times or having to wake up at night just to go to the bathroom may mean that you may be drinking too much water or could be a sign of a health problem.
Constant urination experienced by men in their forties could mean that they have prostate enlargement. This is due to the muscle compression of the urethra because of the enlarged prostate gland. Other symptoms may include fever, blood in the urine, and pain while passing out. If these symptoms are seen, it is important to consult a health care provider for the necessary diagnosis and treatment.
Common causes of Lower Urinary Tract Symptoms in men:
- Urinary Tract Infection – constant urination in men is a usual sign of urinary tract infections. This occurs because of invasion of bacteria inside the urinary tract. The most common bacteria that cause UTIs is E. Coli which can cause damage in the tissues and can go to the bladder, urethra and also to the kidneys. Weak immune system, stress, and poor diet are the common factors that may lead into UTI in men.
- Diabetes – Constant urination may be an early sign of type II diabetes. This is because of the build-up of sugar in the blood. The normal reaction of the body is to get rid of it by excreting it in the urine. This often results into dehydration if not managed early.
- Benign Prostate Enlargement (BPE) – This is the most common cause of constant urination in men. When the prostate gland enlarges, it presses the tube which serves as the pathway of urine for excreting thus obstructing the flow of urine. This condition will cause the bladder to be irritated resulting into frequent urges to urinate.
A good exercise program will go quite a long way so that you can solve your own bladder problems. This particular exercise regime doesn’t have to be difficult or even time intensive, knowing the way to perform the particular exercises they can be completed in as low as 5 minutes per day. It’s important that when you use an exercise regime, make sure you discover ways to do it appropriately. Improperly carried out training is at best inadequate at most, even hazardous.
