BPH Enlargement Frequently Asked Questions
What is BPH of the Prostate?
Benign (nonmalignant) enlargement of the prostate gland is medically known as BPH or benign prostatic hyperplasia. An enlarged prostate means the gland has grown bigger.
Almost 31 million American men suffer from this growth disorder and over 50% of men will have enlarged prostate size during their lifetime. After the age of 80, almost every man has it
What are the symptoms of BPH?
The most enlarged prostate common symptoms include frequent urination, getting up to urinate at night, incomplete emptying of the bladder, waiting a while before the flow of urine begins; urgency, which is the inability to “hold it” and even incontinence. The symptoms of BPH and prostate cancer can be similar. Anyone suffering from any of the described symptoms should see a physician to perform a digital rectal exam and PSA lab testing for a correct diagnosis. Any man over the age 50 years old (40 years old if in your family history) should get a yearly exam and testing.
Why does prostate increase in size?
The prostate gland undergoes the process of enlargement because of certain hormonal changes and some nutritional deficiencies.
What is the treatment of BPH?
The main treatment in the past has been a surgical procedure called a TURP (trans-urethral resection of the prostate). Green Light Laser Therapy is now the treatment of choice for the enlarged prostate in America and rapidly replacing the conventional TURP operations, which removes some of the prostate gland tissue to increase the opening for the flow of urine. Prescription medications, such as Avodart, Hytrin, Cardura ,and Proscar improve some of the urination symptoms and reduce the risk of prostate surgery. Unfortunately, neither the surgery nor the medications really decrease the size of the prostate gland.
Potential side effects related to the use of these drugs include decreased sex drive and impotence. Antibiotics may be prescribed to treat chronic prostatitis (inflammation of the prostate), which may accompany BPH. Some men note relief of their BPH symptoms after a course of antibiotics.
What Nutrition Diet Is Effective?
- Eat whole, fresh, unrefined, and unprocessed foods. Include fruits, vegetables, whole grains, soy, beans, seeds, nuts, olive oil, and cold-water fish (salmon, tuna, sardines, halibut, and mackerel). Eating organic food helps eliminate exposure to hormones, pesticides, and herbicides.
- Keep off refined sugar and flour, dairy products, processed foods, fried foods, junk foods, hydrogenated oils, alcohol (particularly beer), and caffeine.
- Consume 50% of your body weight in ounces of water daily (e.g., if you weigh 150 lbs, drink 75 oz of water daily).
