This is a man’s problem. But man’s spouse should understand the problem too as it affects your life.
Scientifically it is called benign prostatic hypertrophy (BPH.
It is believed to affect most men aged 45 and above.
Generally, the number of men with BOH increases with age. By 60, 50% of men is expected to have some signs of BHP.
BPH puts pressure on the uretha ad can cause a number of urinary symptoms such as frequent urination, difficulty starting urination, terminal dribbling, incomplete emptying of the bladder and inability to urinate at all.
As symptoms progress, a man may be at higher risk of bladder stones, bladder infection and even cancer.
As men age, the male sex hormone dihydrotestosterone (DHT) starts to build up in the prostate, which causes the prostate to slowly enlarge.
My late father-in-law used to eat a lot of meat and sea food and was subsequently diagnosed with prostate cancer at the age of 61.
Can this problem be prevented?
I believe we can if we consume health food daily.
