What’s Up With Your Bladder?

From: £5.99

Publication Date: 22nd February 2018

Approximately 14 million people in the UK live with some form of bladder complaint. This equates to over one in five people, so even if you don’t personally experience the embarrassing and intrusive symptoms of bladder dysfunction, it is likely that you know someone who does. Bladder dysfunction does not discriminate as these problems affect all ages and genders. Despite the fact that these health issues are very common, it can be difficult to discuss them with family, friends and even a doctor. Many people suffer needlessly in silence even though there is now a wide range of investigations and treatments that can lead to effective and long-lasting symptom relief. This book guides you through the different conditions associated with bladder dysfunction, how you can help yourself, what to expect if you need to undergo investigations and the numerous evidence-based treatments that are available – both mainstream and complementary – so that you will no longer need to feel reluctant to broach the subject with your GP – meaning you can find your way back to good health.
