Many men may have this experience when they were young. A few little friends go to the toilet and compete to see who pees far away. The farthest one may be proud for a long time. However, if they are about 50 years old, they may only shake their heads and sigh. Why? Because many men from 40 years old began to appear prostate problems, some people urinate not smoothly; some people urinate, not clean time; some people urinate frequently, but not much urine, even urinate several times at night, the result is not good sleep. These reasons may be related to dysuria caused by prostate.
when it comes to troubles, everyone may have different troubles, but with the growth of age, for men, prostate hypertrophy may become one of the biggest troubles. Don’t think that prostate problems only have the trouble of urination. If the treatment is delayed, it may lead to a series of diseases, or even renal failure, so male friends must not Ignoring the abnormal urination of prostate and seeking medical treatment as soon as possible can ensure the health of the body.
according to medical research, generally men begin to have prostatic hypertrophy at about 50 years old, and the incidence rate increases with age. However, in recent years, due to the change of living habits and the adjustment of diet, the abnormal situation of prostate tends to be younger, but it is still mainly after 50 years old. According to the statistics of relevant medical institutions, about 50% of men aged 50-60 may suffer from prostatic hypertrophy, while for men over 80, the proportion will further increase, even reach more than 80%. It can be seen that for middle-aged and elderly men, prostate abnormalities are very common. Because the symptoms of prostatic hypertrophy are positively correlated with the age of the patients, the older the patients are, the more attention they need to pay. Therefore, for men after 40 years old, color Doppler ultrasound detection of prostate should be carried out every year when they have physical examination, so as to find and solve the problems in advance.
Why does prostatic hypertrophy make it difficult for men to urinate? Will it harm the human bladder and other urinary organs? How to prevent prostate problems? Here we first understand the function of the prostate. To solve these doubts, we need to understand the function of the prostate.
the prostate is a unique organ for men. It is located at the outlet of the male bladder and surrounds the urethra. It is mainly used to help men urinate and maintain male function, but it has the following three physiological functions:
because of its main function, the prostate is like a gate, which acts as a drain switch. If the prostate function is normal, it can control urination The amount of urine, flow rate, how much, so that men go to the toilet normally, but also can help semen excretion. However, with the growth of age, the muscle tissue and fibrous tissue of the prostate hyperplasia, hypertrophy of the prostate around the urethra, will lead to urethral stricture obstruction, affect urination, at this time prone to urgency but urine out of the situation.
generally speaking, prostatic hypertrophy is benign, but prostatic cell hyperplasia and swelling, squeezing the urethra, leading to urethral obstruction, which affects urination, and therefore stimulates the bladder, resulting in a series of urinary system symptoms, such as frequent urination, increased nocturia, urgency, incontinence, urine flow, incomplete urination, intermittent urination, etc. Generally, the typical symptoms of prostatic hypertrophy are divided into 8 categories. You can compare them and observe them continuously so that you can understand the situation. If the urination problem has affected your life, you should treat them as soon as possible.
normal urethra is not obstructed and urinates smoothly. When the male prostate hypertrophy occurs, the urethra is compressed and narrowed by the prostate gland, and the urine flow becomes smaller and weaker.
when the urethra is compressed by the prostate and becomes narrow, when urinating, it is necessary to wait for the contraction of the bladder and the release of the sphincter before urinating. This time is about half a minute.
due to the prostate hypertrophy pressing the urethra, when urinating, the bladder must be forced to contract in order to excrete urine, especially when going to the toilet in the middle of the night, it must rely on the stomach to release urine smoothly.
older people’s urine volume would have increased, and they are prone to frequent diuresis at night. If the prostate is hypertrophic and the bladder is full soon, they will get up at night and urinate more than once. Frequent urination at night is easy to cause metabolic problems, and middle-aged and old men are prone to a series of chronic diseases.
urgent urination refers to the feeling that if you can’t go to the toilet immediately, you can’t hold your bladder. You must go to the toilet immediately, otherwise you may cause urinary incontinence.
in fact, there are no more than two types of dysuria caused by prostate. One is obstructive symptoms: urination needs to wait and start with force; urine flow is small and weak, urination is slow and intermittent; after urination, urination feels unclean and has a feeling of residual urine. The other is bladder irritation: frequent urination, frequent night urination, urgency of urination, urinary incontinence, etc.
according to the above table, a score of 20 to 35 indicates that the symptoms are very serious and should be treated immediately; a score of 8 to 19 indicates that the symptoms are moderate and need treatment; a score of 0 to 7 indicates that the symptoms are very mild. In addition, if the following symptoms have occurred in daily life: Kwai fu *, persistent hematuria, recurrent urinary tract infection, or bladder stones and impaired renal function, it is recommended that surgical treatment should be performed as soon as possible.
is currently in the late stage of hypertrophy of the gland, which may lead to bladder inflammation, hematuria, urinary retention, and cause renal dysfunction and uremia. At this time, catheterization and surgical treatment should be performed as soon as possible, which may lead to the following diseases:
is currently hypertrophy of the glands *, the bladder outlet is beginning to block up, and the residual urine is much more. Besides frequent going to the toilet, it is also easy to breed bacteria. Make the bladder inflamed repeatedly.
inflammation of the bladder itself can lead to hematuria. In addition, the prostate organ is full of blood vessels. When the prostate gland is hypertrophic, or anticoagulants are taken at the same time, it is also easy to cause bleeding.
prostatic hypertrophy blocks the outlet of the bladder, so that every time the bladder sphincter has to be forced to contract in order to urinate. As time goes by, the bladder muscle is hypertrophic and proliferative. When the bladder contraction ability has reached the limit, that is, when the bladder is weak, it can no longer urinate, resulting in urine remaining in the bladder.
when the urine can’t come out completely, we need to go to the hospital for catheterization urgently, so as not to cause renal dysfunction or uremia after a long time. This is a serious problem of prostatic hypertrophy, which must be treated.
Why does benign prostatic hyperplasia lead to renal dysfunction? When the urine of the bladder can not be discharged, it will flow back to the kidney. When the kidney can not discharge the urine normally, there may be kidney damage, leading to renal dysfunction and uremia.
in life, although many elderly people have dysuria, they are unwilling to seek medical treatment for the sake of face. If they do not care about it for a long time, they will eventually have frequent urinary leakage or incontinence. In this way, they are more reluctant to go out, so they do not have social contact, which also reduces the quality of life of the elderly. What’s more, it leads to kidney damage, which may lead to uremia and need to be treated Continuous dialysis treatment is a typical example of turning minor diseases into serious ones. Therefore, for the elderly, their families must pay more attention to observation to avoid problems. CUISINE&HEALTH
