With proper treat- ment, it doesn't have to be. The main symptom of an overactive blad- der is a sudden urge to urinate. This urge may be difficult to stop and can result in the invol- untary loss of urine (in- continence). Incontinence can cause embarrassment and make to isolate themselves, limit their work and social life. Ac- cording to researchers at Mayo Chnic, other symptoms include uri- nating frequently, usu- ally eight or more times in 24 hours and awak- ening two or more times in the night to urinate. Fortunately, a brief evaluation can deter- mine whether there is a specific cause for these symptoms. Although it usually affects only old- er adults, an overactive bladder is not a normal part of aging and treat- ments are available that can help. Management of overactive bladder can begin with behavioral strategies, such as fluid schedules, timed void- ing and bladderhold- ingtechniques. If these initial efforts do not help enough with the symptoms, second line and third line treat- ments are available. ' Several conditions may contribute to signs and symptoms of over- active bladder, includ- ing: high urine produc- tion as might occur with high fluid intake, poor kidney function or dia- betes. Certain medica- tions can contribute to the problem, as well as an enlarged prostate, constipation, excessive consumption of caffeine or alcohol. Often, the specific cause of an overactive bladder is not known. Kegel exercises strengthen the pel- vic floormuscles and urinary tract. These strengthened muscles can help stop the blad- der's involuntary con- tractions. A physician or a physical therapist can explain how to do Kegel exercises correctly. Losing weight may ease the symptoms and physician may rec- ommend reducing the amount of fluid con- sumption and can sug- gest appropriate times to consume them. Medications can re- lax the bladder and help relieve the symp- toms of overactive blad- der and reduce episodes of incontinence. Blad- der medications may not help with getting up during the night to urinate. Often, this is related to the way thek- idneys and heart man- age fluids -- which can change over time. As we get older,people may make as much or more urine at night than they do during the day. For more informa- tion, contact Dr. Emma Stoll at Healthmark Walk-In Clinic in De- Funiak Springs.
