Maureen McGrath, RN, talks about Male incontinence and solutions with Contino®

What is Local Urologist

If you have a health condition such as a urinary tract infection (STI), erectile dysfunction, prostate cancer, Peyronie’s disease or kidney stones, you may work with a local urologist. Your local urologist is a doctor who is educated and trained in treating disorders of the urinary tract. The urinary tract consists of the ureters (the duct that passes urine from the kidney to the bladder), kidneys and bladder. A local urologist may also treat health conditions that affect the male reproductive system.

Because what we eat affects our overall physical and mental health, there are foods you can eat for optimal urinary health. For example, drinking plenty of water can help prevent kidney stones. Increasing zinc and selenium in the diet may improve male reproductive health. Overall, eating a diet rich in fruits and vegetables, whole grains, protein and carbohydrates and low in saturated fats and sodium is beneficial to your health. It’s also important to understand the glycemic index if you have a disease such as diabetes. addition to working with a local urologist, you may also benefit from working with a local registered dietitian, who can help ensure your diet is optimal for your urinary health.

Male incontinence is a common problem for men. Whether it’s caused by diabetes or an overactive bladder, many men seek out a local urologist for symptoms of male incontinence, which can including having to pee more often and pressure in the lower abdomen. A local urologist can ask about your medical history and symptoms to make a diagnosis and/or recommend treatment, which may include a  male incontinence product such as Contino®. Inspired by a prostate cancer survivor, Contino® is a medical device that a man temporarily inserts into the urethra to control bladder leakage. Some men find that incontinence pads or underwear help them regain confidence and control leaks and odor. 

Talking to your local family physician is a great way to get more information about working with a local urologist and finding the right incontinence pads, underwear or product such as Contino® for incontinence in men.
