episode summary

We recently had the chance to talk to urologist Dr. Arun Mathur about urinary dysfunction, an issue many people with Parkinson’s experience. Urinary Dysfunction is peeing too much or peeing too little. This can be caused by issues in the organs responsible for urination. For women, this would include an issue in the urethra or bladder. For men, this would include an issue in the urethra, prostate, or bladder. During this episode of the Parkinson's Podcast, we talk about:

  • The differences in urinary dysfunction between different neurologic diseases
  • An explanation of urinary dysfunction
  • Urinary dysfunction is a potential precursor to Parkinson's
  • It's impact on quality of life
  • When you should seek treatment
  • When urinary dysfunction occurs
  • Non-pharmacological and surgical treatments
  • DBS and urinary dysfunction
  • Carbidopa/levodopa’s effect on urinary dysfunction
  • Pharmacological treatments
  • Catheterization
  • Prostate symptoms versus Parkinson’s symptoms

and more. We hope you enjoy this episode and continue listening to the Parkinson's Podcast.
