Never underestimate OAB

Overactive bladder (OAB), better known as frequent urination, is one of the problems that tends not to be properly handled and eventually becomes severe.

You can be made miserable although it ain't a deadly disease. Have you ever been dying during urination? You woulda experienced it. Well, what'd happen if it comes at the unexpected moment?

For example, you're a telephone operator and receiving a phone call, then suddenly dying for a pee. D'ya hafta urinate because you could no longer resist?

OAB can occur from the age of 5 years. Doctors ain't been able to get rid of OAB from your life because the cause is unknown. Mostly, they can only lower the frequency, e.g., of eight to three times a day.

OAB becomes an ordeal because you're often up one or two times at night just to go to the toilet. You normally urinate less than seven times a day. The urge to urinating emerges again after three to four hours later.

Bladder has enough capacity. You begin to realize the initial sensation to urinating when it's filled with 150 cc, but there's no urgency to get to the toilet. It could still be detained until the production is around 300 to 350 cc.

There're several possible causes of OAB. Urinary tract infection is the main cause of increased frequency or urination. Frequent urination can also be an early symptom of diabetes. Acute prostatitis is as well.

Acute prostatitis is a swelling and irritation of the prostate gland that goes fast. Acute prostatitis is usually caused by a bacterial infection of the prostate gland that causes the bladder wall to become sensitive.

Your vaginal moisture is increased just before menstruation. The extra moisture leave your body within a few days of menstruation, thereby increasing the frequency of urination. Also in the early weeks of pregnancy, your uterus has been developed, so it presses your bladder, causing frequent urination.

Interstitial cystitis, a chronic inflammation, is characterized by pain in your bladder and pelvic area. The main symptom is a strong urge to urinating and only spends a small amount of urine each time.

Caffeine inhibits the action of antidiuretic hormone (ADH). The hormone ensures not too much water in your urine. Barriers to ADH make water production in your urine increased.

Medications used to treat high blood pressure make you urinate more often for a while, and it returns to normal after you stop taking the drug.

Stroke or other neurological diseases damaging to the nerves that control the bladder can cause function problems, including the urge to frequent, abrupt urinating.

Nocturia, overactive bladder at night, usually affects you at the age of 50 years, at pregnancy, with prostate cancer and heart failure.

Overweight, diabetes, smoking and lack of movement, also urinary tract infection have risk factors for OAB.

Well, there're some useful tips. You should not wear tight jeans and abandon the habit of wearing pantyliners. You can try the following three precautions, i.e., exercise bladder muscle by holding the urination for 30 minutes and kegel to tighten your thighs, pay attention to your food intake and drinks, especially diuretics, and avoid drinking and eating two hours before bedtime.
