Hi I urinate a lot but do not have a urinary tract infection this has been going on for years. I go to the restroom during the day like once every hour. And at night at least three times I have to wake up to go. Are there an vitamins I can take to help this? Cranberry supplements maybe?

Hi,

Urinary incontinence is common along with women after 50 and usually is caused by urinary infections or weakened the pelvic floor. This is also a common and often embarrassing problem.

If overreactive or incontinent bladder affects your daily activities, don't hesitate to see your doctor. For most people, simple lifestyle changes or medical treatment can ease discomfort.

It is treated with specific medications, pelvic floor muscles exercises, electric stimulation of bihevioral treatment and in most cases this is adequate for incontinence control.

If Cystitisis a cause as an bacterial infection then it must be treated with antibiotics..Surgical options are reserved for severe and intractable cases.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care

Regards,
Dr Ivan R. Rommstein, General Surgeon
