Urology Awareness Month: Understanding the Importance of Good Urological Health

Urology Awareness Month: Understanding the Importance of Good Urological Health

In 2014, The Urology Foundation declared September Urology Awareness Month. Founded in 1995, the foundation helps others understand the importance of good urological health. 

The most common urological issues are: 

  • Prostate cancer
  • Kidney stones
  • Overactive bladder
  • Incontinence 
  • Erectile dysfunction
  • Urinary tract infections 

All require seeing a urologist for proper diagnosis and routine treatment. Some, however, are more serious and require extensive medical attention 

September 20-24, 2021 is Urology Week 

This year, Urology Week is focusing on incontinence and breaking the negative stigma surrounding this condition. While major or minor bladder leaks can be an inconvenience, you can still have an active, vibrant life with the right treatment plan.  

The right products can help you too! Rely Medical Supply has several products for male and female incontinence issues. We also have trained professionals who can assist in selecting the best products for your personal needs. 

How to Maintain Good Urological Health 

  • Stay hydrated and drink plenty of water. True, drinking lots of water can make you "go," not drinking enough can cause more problems.
  • Watch what you eat. Limit salt, caffeine, carbonated beverages, and alcohol intake. You don't have to completely eliminate them, but moderation is best. 
  • Maintain a healthy weight. Losing a few pounds can relieve the stress on your bladder.
  • Quit smoking. Yes, smoking affects urological health, too. Another good reason to stop.

If you have questions about which incontinence or products are right for you, please call the knowledgeable Product Experts at Rely Medical Supply toll-free at 1-888-529-2308. Our phones are answered Monday through Friday from 8:00 am to 5:00 pm Central Standard Time by our helpful and compassionate Product Experts who are trained to help you select the right products for your personal needs, helping you can stay clean, dry, and comfortable.
