A new study in PLOS ONE finds that while sitting down offers men without such prostate issues no measurable benefit, men who suffer from LUTS are able to urinate faster, with greater force, and leave less urine behind in their bladders. These are all challenges men with the condition face, in addition to the rarer complications of urinary pain and excessive urination at night. Were our bodies designed to stay upright, or were we meant to submit to gravity and squat?
They argue with me and shake their heads and plead with me for it to not be true. Believe me: I understand why. The word for the act is as horrendous as the act itself: Sitzpinkeln going against nature.
Naturally, urinary leakage differs from man to man but regardless if you're dealing with just a few drops every now and then or you're dealing with larger leaks, you can rest assured in knowing that there's help available and there are ways to help you stay in control of urine leakage.

W hen, inMarcel Duchamp submitted a lowly urinal to an exhibition organised by the American Society of Independent Artists, he was making a statement about what can and cannot be considered art. Now, in Hamburg almost years later, an altogether more pragmatic form of piss-artistry is taking place. Residents of the party district of St Pauli have become so sick of their streets, underpasses and alleyways being used as public toilets, that they have coated them with a hydrophobic paint.
It is suggested that the body posture during urination can influence urodynamic parameters in patients with Lower Urinary Tract Symptoms LUTS to an extent approaching pharmacological interventions. In this article, the influence of body position during micturition on maximum urinary flow rate Qmaxvoiding time TQ and post-void residual volume PVR in healthy males and patients with LUTS is analyzed by means of a systematic review and meta-analysis. A systematic search was conducted in 14 medical databases.
I just got back from some amazing bicycle travel, part of it solo, in a remote region of Patagonia. It was like a backpacking trip on two wheels: spectacular, peaceful, and wild. Once accustomed to the solitude and self-reliance I felt strong, calm, and capable.
From kimono to keitai; research Japanese facts and figures through translated opinion polls and surveys. Between the 20th and 23rd of April male members of the CLUB BBQ free email forwarding service completed a private internet-based questionnaire. Note that apparently at schools, entering a cubicle will often get you seriously teased if television programs are to be believedcausing problems with constipation in schoolkids, and perhaps both the teasing and the constipation continue to be problems in later life?
But the only toilet looks questionable at best, so you do the obvious thing and hover. Friend, I have bad news: Hovering to pee may be bad for your health. It turns out that doing that classic partial-squat over a gross public toilet can weaken your bladder over time.
Scientists are not exactly sure what causes benign prostate hypertrophy, or an enlarged prostate gland, but the likelihood of having one increases with age. Hormones have something to do with it, as men who had their testicles removed at a young age due to cancer do not have these problems, research shows, and when men with enlarged prostates have their testicles removed, their prostates tend to shrink. The good news is that an enlarged prostate is thought to be a natural part of aging and not necessarily a precursor to prostate cancer.
