Study: Girls' Bladder Problems Often Continue

Friday, 14 April 2006 12:00 AM

Girls with bed wetting and other urinary problems are at high risk of having similar bladder problems as adults, according to a study from Loyola University.

Dr. Mary Pat Fitzgerald and her colleagues surveyed over 2,000 women aged 40 to 69 about their urinary troubles. Twenty-nine percent of the women reported having urinary incontinence at least once a week, while 12 percent had daily incontinence.

Further, women who reported urinary frequency during childhood were twice as likely to experience urgency as adults. And those who wet the bed as children were twice as likely as others to do so as adults.

The study also found that women who had experienced urinary tract infections in childhood were more than twice as likely to have them as adults.

The Loyola team suggests that early identification of women at high risk could bring earlier and more effective intervention.

The study appears in the Journal of Urology.
