Nutritional Training and Urogynecology

Some bladder control issues can be effectively treated through dietary changes. Dr. Robison’s office offers professional nutritional training to patients dealing with urinary incontinence and/or recurrent urinary tract infections (UTI).

Because some foods and beverages can exacerbate urinary urgency and frequency, learning what to avoid, as well as what to include, can be very helpful in helping manage these issues.

It might seem unlikely that chronic constipation can cause bladder control problems, but it is quite common. Full bowels put extra pressure on the bladder, adding to urgency and leakage issues.

Women who experience diarrhea may also be at a greater risk for urinary tract infections.
