DO NOT IGNORE FREQUENT, PAINFUL URINATION
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.
