Urology Wellness Tips
Here are some tips for promoting urologic wellness:
- Stay hydrated: Drinking plenty of water can help flush bacteria from the urinary tract and reduce the risk of urinary tract infections (UTIs).
- Empty your bladder regularly: Don’t hold in urine for long periods of time.
- Maintain good hygiene: Wipe front to back after using the bathroom, avoid harsh soaps or douches in the genital area, and wash your hands frequently.
- Exercise regularly: Regular physical activity can help improve bladder control and reduce the risk of UTIs.
- Quit smoking: Smoking can increase the risk of bladder cancer and other urologic problems.
- Eat a healthy diet: A diet high in fruits, vegetables, and fiber and low in fat, sugar, and salt can help maintain urologic health.
- Manage chronic conditions: If you have conditions such as diabetes, high blood pressure, or an enlarged prostate, work with your doctor to manage them effectively.
- Get regular check-ups: Regular check-ups with a urologist or primary care doctor can help detect and treat urologic problems early.
- Avoid alcohol and caffeine: Excessive alcohol and caffeine consumption can irritate the bladder and lead to incontinence.
- Practice safe sex: Use condoms during sexual activity and avoid risky sexual behaviors to reduce the risk of sexually transmitted infections (STIs).
