Overactive Bladder and Body Mass

Tuesday, April 6th, 2010

There are many reasons to maintain a healthy weight; for your heart, your blood pressure, and to prevent diabetes.  But do you know that excess body weight can even effect your bladder?

Studies have shown a relationship between body mass in women and the incidence of overactive bladder and urinary incontinence.  Carrying extra weight in your mid-section and around the organs places additional downward pressure on the bladder and pelvic floor.  This may cause weakening of the pelvic floor over time and can result in loss of bladder control.

To take a load off your bladder, trim those extra pounds (postpartum & mid-life)  and strengthen your pelvic floor with The Bladder Cure progressive strengthening program. Order today!
