DO NOT IG­NORE FRE­QUENT, PAINFUL URI­NA­TION

HT Cafe - - LIFESTYLE -

The hum­ble blad­der, a hol­low or­gan that holds urine from the kid­neys, of­ten goes un­cared for. Cer­tain con­di­tions can af­fect your blad­der and cause painful, fre­quent uri­na­tion or urine leak­age. But with the help of sim­ple life­style changes and ex­er­cises, you can en­sure your blad­der’s health. Here are cer­tain items to eat and habits to keep the or­gan healthy:

■ Don’t hold back: Uri­nat­ing com­pletely can en­sure that women don’t face uri­nary tract in­fec­tions or blad­der is­sues. Tight­en­ing the mus­cles to stop from uri­nat­ing too soon can cause the urine to head back to the blad­der, which can cause in­fec­tions.

■ Eat right: Cer­tain foods are known to worsen blad­der is­sues. So, it’s best to avoid foods such as choco­late (a source of caf­feine), spicy foods and toma­toes.

■ Stop smok­ing: Smok­ing can cause blad­der can­cer. So, if you want to en­sure your blad­der health, cut down on to­bacco.
