Men’s health focus of Oct. 17 seminar

Bolingbrook – Dr. Vibha Sabharwal will discuss men’s health issues on Oct. 17 during a free seminar at Adventist Bolingbrook Hospital.

A certified board urologist, Sabharwal’s discussion will run from 6-8 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 17, at the hospital, 500 Remington Blvd. in Bolingbrook.

Among the topics Sabharwal will address are male incontinence and sexual dysfunction.

“These are issues that can be embarrassing to discuss, but they are difficult issues that affect men everywhere,” Sabharwal said. “Only through a better understanding of what is behind these medical conditions can men seek the treatment they need.”

To register for this free discussion, please call (630) 856-7525, or visit www.keepingyouwell.com/abh and click on “Education & Events.”

According to the National Kidney and Urologic Diseases Information Clearinghouse, the prevalence of urinary incontinence among men increases with age, though it is a treatable issue. Common causes include prostate cancer treatment or treatment for an enlarged prostate.

Finding the right treatment to address urinary incontinence can be found by talking with your health care provider.

When it comes to sexual dysfunction, the National Institutes of Health estimates that issues such as erectile dysfunction affect as many as 30 million men in the United States. Incidence increases with age, but it is treatable at any age.
