|Condition of the month: Benign Prostatic Hypertrophy |
Men, does this sound familiar?
BPH is considered a normal part of the aging process in men and is hormonally dependent on testosterone and dihydrotestosterone (DHT) production. An estimated 50% of men demonstrate histopathologic BPH by age 60 years. This number increases to 90% by age 85 years.
Due to the location of the prostate, BPH causes a number of urinary symptoms. The prostate is located just below where the bladder empties into the urethra. As the prostate enlarges, it impinges the flow of urine through the urethra.
The most common symptoms are:
Frequency - urinating much more often than normal.
Urgency - having a sensation that you need to urinate immediately.
Nocturia - getting up to urinate multiple times during the night.
Hesitancy - difficulty starting the urine stream.
What can be done if you yourself, or a man in your life, is suffering from these symptoms? First, prostate cancer should be ruled out by your physician, since the symptoms are identical. Cancer or not, let us help! We offer non-invasive treatment options, including nutrition counseling for conditions such as BPH.
