Urology Forum Takes Off

By November 3, 2009

Good news: people are starting to chime in on the urology forum. I imagine that there are plenty of readers out there who might have urology concerns on their minds.

Right now, I have broken the forum up into three areas: for women, for men, and for kids. So try to post in the right category. Later there will be more.

We have some good discussions going on:

  • urinary incontinence in women
  • preventive antibiotics for kids with recurrent urinary tract infections
  • some cutting-edge research on the origins of prostate cancer
  • I'd like to point you to my new articles on an enlarged prostate , which are also in the spotlight now on my home page. I have heard of so many guys feeling frustrated by their symptoms of an enlarged prostate, wondering what treatments are for them, and if the treatments will end up worse than the bother they experience now.

    The opportunities to discuss new topics is wide open, given that the messages are appropriate and informative.

    You can sign up for my forum and newsletter at the links above. Hope to get to know you.

Hi Laura,
Thanks for all of your great articles. I learn from each and every one of the ones I’ve read. Could you write something about urinary incontinence in the elderly and if certain medications contribute to this condition?

Should an antibiotic course of treatment be started for a patient who is asymptomatic for UTI. (urine was being tested for other medical reason but showed signs of infection)

I don’t know what your age is, but according to urologists, finding bacteria in urine in asymptomatic postmenopausal women is common. Some doctors do not see a need to treat, while others may recommend a 3-4-day course of antibiotics maximum. Hope that this helps.
