Benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) can cause considerable trouble to men, especially older men. Unfortunately, because of the lack of knowledge of BPH, patients will either choose radical surgery or too negative to take any treatment.

We can find that there are some differences in the treatment methods of each patient. For example, some patients need surgery, some need oral medicine, others need only observation.

Adjust your lifestyle so that prostate hyperplasia will not affect your life

Prostate, a male organ, can cause some specific urination symptoms, such as frequent urination, increased nocturia, dysuria, and so on. If these urinary symptoms have affected the normal life, you need to use drug treatment. Natural medicine Diuretic and Anti-inflammatory Pill is a good choice. It can eliminate the symptoms and cause to reduce recurrent rate.

But not all patients with BPH need immediate medication or even surgery. In fact, for most patients with BPH, a reasonable lifestyle adjustment is a suitable treatment, especially when patients' quality of life is not significantly affected by the symptoms of the lower urinary tract.

It applies to all patients with hypourinary tract symptoms due to prostatic hyperplasia, especially those with mild hypourinary tract symptoms (IPSS less than or equal to 7), or patients with moderate or above symptoms but not significantly affected the quality of life.

Although prostate volume gradually increases with age, more and more older men will have urination problems for benign prostatic hyperplasia. But not all elderly patients with BPH will have lower urinary tract symptoms, or not all patients with BPH will have lower urinary tract symptoms will significantly affect the quality of life.

In one study, 85% of patients receiving lifestyle adjustment instruction remained stable at one year, and 65% had no clinical progress at five years.

How should patients with BPH adjust their lifestyles?

Change life habits: avoid or reduce caffeine, alcohol, spicy intake, and long-term smoking. Long-term smoking will reduce the body's immunity. And long-term drinking alcohol or coffee, with diuretic and stimulating effects, can cause increased urine volume, frequent urination, urgency, and other symptoms. In addition, drinking is the leading cause of sudden urination in patients with benign prostatic hyperplasia.

Avoid spicy food, such as onion, ginger, garlic, pepper, pepper, etc. These foods can cause prostate congestion, cause prostate swelling, aggravate dysuria, and cause prostate disease at home.

Reasonable liquid intake: appropriate restriction of drinking water can alleviate the symptoms of frequent urination. Pay attention to the time of liquid intake, regular and quantitative drinking, to avoid excessive drinking at night, increasing the prostate's burden. For example, limit water at night and before attending public social occasions. But the daily water intake should not be less than 1500ml.

Optimization of urination habits: Patients with symptoms of incomplete urination can use relaxing urination, secondary urination, and urethral extrusion after urination to discharge all urine as far as possible.

Mental relaxation training: Patients with urgent urination symptoms can be distracted from the desire to urinate, such as breathing training and perineal pressure.
Bladder training: Patients with frequent urination symptoms can be encouraged to hold their urine properly to increase bladder capacity and intermittent urination time.
Patients with constipation should receive treatment in time.
