DON’T PUT OFF YOUR HEALTH: CALL US FOR AN APPOINTMENT

Appointment

The COVID-19 pandemic has forced all of us to adapt to a lot of uncertainty, but there is one thing we remain sure of: Maintaining good health is job No. 1.

The Urology Group is available to schedule appointments for tests, consultations, check-ups, and urologic procedures, so don’t put off calling us – especially if you have ongoing health concerns. One of the best defenses against COVID-19, and pretty much any illness, is having a strong body to fight back.

Our physicians, nurses, and administrative staff are taking additional precautions every day to ensure your safety.

We recommend you schedule an appointment for any of the following:

  • Unusual urinary symptom. Patients should not ignore any unusual urinary symptoms, such as urinating frequently, especially at night, or experiencing a burning sensation. These could indicate a serious health issue. There is help for conditions like overactive bladder, incontinence, and recurring urinary tract infections, so the earlier you’re seen the more treatment options you have.
  • Annual prostate check. Some research suggests that putting off a prostate-specific antigen (PSA) test has caused an increase in advanced prostate cancer cases. Men 50 and older (or younger if at higher risk) should have an annual prostate exam.
  • Surveillance cystoscopies. The American Urological Association recommends those who have a history of bladder cancer should undergo regular surveillance.
  • Annual exams and routine follow-ups. If you’re due for a follow-up for any condition contact us to see a physician.

Good health takes good care. To schedule an appointment – whether you prefer in-person or telehealth – give us a call at 513-841-7400 or click here.

THE SUN’S BRIGHT SIDE: URINARY HEALTH BENEFITS

BikingIt’s been a hard-earned summer, and we hope you’re letting it shine on you, literally, by spending more time in the sun and enjoying activities that are safe. Yes, the sun offers substantial health benefits, as long as we don’t overdo it.

In addition to brightening our days, the sun is an essential source of vitamin D, a vital compound that many of us could use more of – 42% of Americans are deficient. The vitamin D we absorb from the sun improves bone health, supports the immune system, and enhances our moods. But maybe you knew that.

Here’s what you might not know: Vitamin D can benefit urinary health. New research suggests it could possibly reduce the risks of prostate cancer, for example, and other tests have shown men with low levels of vitamin D had higher chances of being diagnosed with the disease.

Separate research has linked low vitamin D levels to higher rates of urinary tract infections (UTIs). This is especially important in the summer, when dehydration and humidity contribute to bacterial growth in the urinary tract, which can lead to infection.

So, beam up. The sun, like ice cream, can make life better when enjoyed in moderation. Do wear UVprotective sunglasses and sun block to protect your skin and eyes, and then allow the sun to shine in your life!
