Apollo Organises Walk & Talk On Incontinence

On the occasion of World Health Day, Apollo Hospitals Hyderguda organized a 90-minute awareness walk and talk about incontinence on a Sunday. Experts at the walk said that urinary bladder problems are common but often neglected. “Overactive bladder (urgency of urination) affects about 10-15% of all adults, while stress incontinence (urine leakage associated with activity or cough) is a common problem in women,” the expert said. They added that most patients suffer in silence partly because of a lack of information and more so because of associated social stigma. “An entirely different group of patients are those suffering from congenital spinal abnormalities (such as spina bifida) or spinal injury. Inadequate treatment in these patients can be disastrous since there is risk of losing kidney function. Many are children and it’s heart-rending to see 2-3 such patients with avoidable kidney failure week after week,” the experts stated. Apollo Hospital, Hyderguda, is a tertiary referral center specialized in the treatment of bladder problems. “We have been associated with several academic initiatives that have targeted professionals and involved in the treatment of these patients both in India and abroad, but this has clearly not been enough,” said an expert.
