When You Gotta Go – Swiss Naturals Talks Overactive Bladder and UTIs

health By November 14, 2016 No Comments

When you have to go, you have to go. When you suffer from overactive bladder (OAB) or a urinary tract infection (UTI) when you have to go, you have to go, and go and go and go again some more. But how common are they, really?

In reality, both are quite common. 1 in 5 – the number of Canadians over the age of 35 who suffer from overactive bladder. 1 in 2 – the number of women who will experience a Urinary Tract Infection. The bottom line is that if you suffer from either of these conditions, you’re not alone.

Both conditions cause an urgency to urinate and an increase in the amount of times this urge is felt. When you have overactive bladder (or OAB), this can mean 8 trips a day and more than once a night. It can also mean difficulty holding back, which can lead to embarrassing accidents. People who struggle with OAB often make lifestyle changes to hide their condition and can internalize a lot of shame.
