Gagging
  • The combination of hyaluronic acid (HA) and chondroitin sulfate (CS) resembles glycosaminoglycan (GAG) replenishment therapy. The aim of our study was to evaluate the impact of HA and CS on nocturia, in men with nocturia after PCa radiotherapy.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • […] wake-time activity; (3) this increase in nocturnal physical activity appears to mediate the nondipping phenomenon in these patients; and (4) impaired dipping does not appear to be attributable to differences in estimated glomerular filtration rate, albuminuria[ahajournals.org]

Treatment

  • It is doubtful that alpha-blockers will have clinical significance for treatment because the difference in nocturia episodes between treatment with alpha-blockers and placebo is too small.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

Prognosis

  • It is now clear that, apart from peripheral BP, central hemodynamic parameters are important for cardiovascular prognosis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • This disease typically carries a poor prognosis, often due to extensive spread at the time of diagnosis. Conclusion PSRCC of urinary bladder is a rare entity with a very poor prognosis.[casesjournal.biomedcentral.com]

Etiology

  • These data confirm that the etiology of nocturia is multifactorial and in many instances unrelated to the underlying urologic condition.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Nocturia has been poorly studied and, only recently, has been classified according to its etiology and pathogenesis.[doi.org]

Prevention

  • Therefore, prevention of post-prostatectomy incontinence might be important to avoid aggravating the Nocturia Quality of Life questionnaire score. 2016 The Japanese Urological Association.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • The prostate presses on the tube called the urethra and prevents the bladder from emptying completely – hence the need for more frequent trips to the toilet. However, recent studies have shown that many older women also suffer from the same problem.[netdoctor.co.uk]
  • This can prevent the bladder from emptying properly, causing it to retain some urine. I know from personal experience that this can be a very frustrating symptom of MS.[ms.about.com]
