Overactive Bladder - 4 Ways This Can Be Treated!

An overactive bladder is a condition that is characterized by a problem in the bladder storage function; a problem that eggs one on to urinate frequently. This condition can cause problems in your social and work life. You may isolate yourself from others and feel embarrassed about the situation.

Symptoms
If you have an overactive bladder, you may exhibit symptoms of frequent urination, involuntary leakage of urine and frequent urge to urinate. These symptoms might disrupt your daily life; so it is important to seek advice from a medical practitioner.

Causes
To better understand what causes an overactive bladder, you need to know how the urination process works. Urine is produced by the kidneys, which flows to the bladder. During urination, the urine is excreted from an opening in the bladder and flows out via the urethra. As the kidneys secrete urine, the bladder starts to fill up. During this stage, nerve signals are sent to the brain; signals that trigger your body to urinate. The bladder muscles tighten that pushes the urine out of the body.

An overactive bladder results from the involuntarily contraction of the bladder, which might happen even if the content of urine in the bladder is low. These contractions create the urge to urinate. The various causes of an overactive bladder are:

  1. Excessive fluid intake, if your fluid intake is high, then you may have the tendency to urinate frequently.
  2. Presence of tumors or stones in the bladder can make the bladder overactive as well.
  3. Excessive alcohol or caffeine consumption has the same effect as an excessive intake of fluids has.
  4. Urinary tract infections may interfere with the entire process of urination, thus causing your bladder to swell up and become overactive.
  5. Other diseases and conditions such as constipation and an enlarged prostate can hamper bladder functioning.

Treatment
There are multiple approaches to treat an overactive bladder; your doctor may use one or a combination of multiple methods.

  1. Medications: Medications such as Trospium and Tolterodine help in relaxing the bladder. These medications help treat symptoms of frequent urination.
  2. Bladder injections: Botox is a protein that is injected into the bladder that causes partial paralysis of the bladder muscles. This helps in treating the constant urge to urinate. However, its effects are temporary as they last for 6-9 months.
  3. Lifestyle modifications: Certain lifestyle modifications such as incorporating exercises to strengthen the pelvic muscles, maintaining optimal weight levels and bladder training to control its functioning can help with managing an overactive bladder.
  4. SurgeryIf the other treatments do not produce the desired results, then surgery is usually recommended. The aim of the surgery is to enhance the storage capacity of the bladder and reduce bladder pressure.

In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

Laser Kidney Stone Treatment - What All Should You Know?

Kidney stones are crystalline deposits of hardened minerals in the lining of the kidneys. Dehydration is a major cause of kidney stones. The lack of adequate water makes the urine more acidic leading to the formation of stones.
 

Kidney stones are most common amongst individuals who belong to the 30-50 year age bracket and who have a family history of the condition. Obesity, hypertension and a diet which is high in sodium and protein, can increase the risk of kidney stones. Research suggests that the use of Calcium and Vitamin D supplements over a period of time can also increase the risk of kidney stones.

Symptoms
If the stones are small in size, they can pass unnoticed with urine. However, the stones might even cause sharp pain and present with other symptoms. These include-

 

  • Blood or white pus in urine
  • Extreme nausea and vomiting
  • A burning feeling when urinating
  • A persistent urge to urinate

Seek medical attention if you notice any of these signs at your earliest. Kidney stones, if left untreated, can lead to a number of severe complications. They can cause blockages and lead to a chronic kidney disease.

Treatment
The most common method of kidney stone removal is laser surgery. A minimally invasive procedure, it uses a flexible ureteroscopic laser to access the stones through the urinary passage. It breaks the big stones into smaller pieces without damaging the tissues. The smaller stones are then expelled from the body by urination. With a success rate of 80%, it is one of the most recommended methods of treatment for kidney stones.

Role of Homeopathy
Laser therapy helps break down big stones, but if the stones are small they do not require surgical intervention. Homeopathy helps pass the smaller stones through urine as painlessly as possible. Homeopathic medications help relieve the pain and spasms that are associated with the passing of kidney stones.

They are quite often used in conjunction with other therapies that include supplements and hot packs. Homeopathy, being both extremely effective and completely natural, is the preferred method of treatment when it comes to the small kidney stones.
