Ways to prevent Urologic Diseases

Things you can do everyday to ensure your urologic system is clean and disease free for years to come

  • Drink water (Lots of water): water naturally enhances healthy urine flow to flush waste products from your body. Staying hydrated is absolutely essential to urologic health.
  • Juice It Up: cranberry juice is not only packed with anti-oxidants, it helps prevent urinary tract infections in people of all ages. Studies have also shown that a glass of pomegranate juice consumed daily may even help to prevent recurring instances of prostate cancer.
  • Cut down on NaCl: consumption of large amounts of table salt may cause water retention and disrupt the natural balance of minerals and other compounds found in your systems. Overloading on salt has also been linked to higher occurrences of kidney stones.
  • Go with the half-caff: caffeine found in coffee, tea, and many popular energy drinks acts as a diuretic and may irritate your bladder. Select lower caffeine or decaffeinated options for your morning and afternoon beverages.
  • Hit the gym: obese or overweight have shown a propensity to contract a urologic disease. In fact, obese patients are more than twice as likely to have kidney stones and are 30% more likely to die of prostate cancer.
  • Get on the patch: or whatever else you need to do to quit smoking. A battery of recent medical studies has shown that there is a strong link between smoking and diseases such as bladder cancer, kidney cancer, and erectile dysfunction.

Certainly there are no guarantees in this life; but there are simple things we can all do to secure our health for a long time. But then again, itís all up to you in the end.
