Loss of Bladder control


Indo-American Society spreads medical awareness on a very common mid-age problem  – Loss of  Bladder control

 

Indo-American Society organized a Medical  Seminar, inviting Urologist, Dr Percy Chibber as the Speaker on the topic,  “Losing your bladder control- Find Solutions.”

The Convenors for the meeting were Dr G B Parulkar, Chairman, Medical Programs & Healthcare Subcommittee & an eminent  Cardiovascular Surgeon and Dr  Zinobia Madan, Special Invitee, Executive Committee  &  Healthcare entrepreneur & Founder- ClinOma Healthcare.

Loss of bladder control results in Urinary incontinence which is unintentional leakage of urine. Dr Chibber explained the various types of incontinence in a uniquely interesting manner by giving examples in each type. He explained further that urinary incontinence is more common in women than men, the most common causes in both sexes being weak or damaged bladder muscles, overactive bladder muscles, and certain prostate problems. Females generally suffering  from bladder control problems do not seek medical help and avoid consulting  the doctor.

For good bladder control, lifestyle tips such as intake of correct fluids, a diet rich in fibre to avoid constipation  along with avoidance of alcohol, caffeine and carbonated or aerated drinks was advised. Weight control was also advised as  one of the lifestyle measures, as body weight puts extra strain on the pelvic floor muscles.

Treatment of urinary incontinence including behavioral treatments, like bladder training, Kegel exercises/ pelvic floor exercises, medication, surgery or a combination of these therapies were  very well covered. Supporting his view points, Dr  Zinobia Madan added some valuable tips on diet and exercise.

At the start of the  meeting, the President of Indo-American Society, Mr Upendra Sheth  welcomed the Speaker Dr Percy Chibber and the audience present. Further , Dr G B Parulkar  introduced Dr Chibber  as a well acclaimed Intternationally trained Urologist with an  MS degree in Gen Surgery & FCPS with specialized training in Urology at the University of Edinburgh Department of Urology and Renal                   Transplantation at the Western General Hospital, Edinburgh,  training in percutaneous Renal Surgery and Radiology at the Institute of Urology : the St Peter’s and Paul’s Hospitals, London and at the Long Island Jewish Hospital, New York.

Dr Chibber is currently Director of Urology and Renal Transplantation at the Jaslok Hospital and Research Centre, Bombay. He also holds the coveted position “President of the Urological Society of India” for the current  year.

During the Panel discussion convened by both Panelists, Dr Zinobia Madan  and Dr G B Parulkar, many important queries raised by the audience were clarified. The Meeting was well attended by members of public as well as Senior Members  of the Indo-American Society.
