Lower urinary tract dysfunction in the diabetic elderly

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Elderly patients with diabetes appear to be particularly susceptible to urological complications. Diabetes impacts the urological quality of life as bothersome urinary symptoms (including incontinence) are clearly associated with the development and progression of diabetes. When recognized early, many symptoms can be treated through a combination of behavioral and pharmacological management. Without attention to the early signs of urinary symptoms in elderly patients, significant urological dysfunction may occur, leading to morbidity and often-preventable symptomatic deterioration.
