  • I have a brownish discharge while urinating since yesterday. What could it be?

    Brownish urine can mean many things. It can mean blood in the urine, usually old blood, it can also mean bile in the urine. If you have liver disease the urine can turn brown. A fistula to the bladder or urethra from the colon can cause brownish fecal matter to color the urine. A brownish discharge from the urethra maybe either blood or an infection. I would advise you to get checked by a urologist. A urinalysis should be done. Clifford D Gluck MD FACS READ MORE

  • UTI

    Chronic urinary tract infections in the elderly are usually the result of arophic vaginitis. With the loss of hormones at menopause, the wall of the vagina thins out and is unable to support healthy bacteria to prevent urinary tract infections. As you know, the vagina and the bladder are neighbors, and after menopause the vagina becomes a bad neighbor. This can be reversed through a couple of different strategies. One is to provide hormonal replacement, which should be bioidentical, such as estradiol and progesterone. A non-hormonal solution is through radio frequency vaginal rejuvenation, ThermiVa. This treatment induces the growth of new healthy vaginal tissue. With the addition of oral probiotics, the vagina can support a colony of healthy bacteria to prevent the “bad” bacteria from causing urinary tract infections. I have used this strategy in several of my patients, with good success. Additional benefits are improved vaginal hygiene, appearance, and lubrication. Clifford D. Gluck, MD, FACS READ MORE

  • Urine trac pain

    There are many reasons to have pain in both the pelvic area or the lower back. If they are connected, it could be due to urinary tract infection, but it could also be due to a condition such as interstitial cystitis. That is a benign, but painful condition, which can be treated in a variety of ways. It is important for you to have another evaluation. Clifford D. Gluck, MD, FACS READ MORE

  • My husband has difficulty maintaining an erection. What can we do to improve our sex life?

    I would recommend a full evaluation with a urologist as well as primary care physician.

There is some good evidence that platelet rich plasma and Low intensity shockwave therapy can restore improved function. READ MORE

  • Does urine incontinence indicate a weak bladder?

    Your symptoms indicate genuine stress urinary incontinence, the most likely result of relaxation of the pelvic floor muscles, increased mobility of the urethra during coughing, and subsequent leakage of urine. There are new in exciting therapy is available, which are non-invasive. One is the Emsella chair, the other is a ThermiVa radio frequency energy. Emsella uses focused magnetic resonance energy to achieve forceful contraction of the pelvic floor muscles, and restore continence, simply by sitting fully clothed on the device. I ThermiVa uses a gentle radio frequency energy To induce collagenesis and restore vaginal integrity and thickness. It also may have a calming effect on the bladder. READ MORE

  • What could be the reason behind my pain during urination?

    I would ask your doctor about the possibilities of either prostatitis or interstitial cystitis. These are two conditions which might have a normal urine but still result in painful urination. Although interstitial cystitis is most often diagnosed in women, it is fairly prevalent in the male population. READ MORE

  • Itching and burning while passing urine continues after antibiotics. What could be the reason?

    Yes you should check with your doctor, and all appropriate tests to rule out STDs, as well as a urine culture.

  • Why should people with kidney stones avoid spinach?

    In the United States, the most common type of kidney stone is made from calcium oxalate. Spinach is very high in oxalates, as well as some other related leafy green vegetables such as Swiss chard or kale. You can eat the spinach in moderation, but there are better ways to prevent the stones, starting with hydration, and some forms of medication. This is a good question to discuss with your urologist.

  • What is the test recommended to learn the cause of smelly and yellow urine?

    Cloudy urine may be the result of precipitation of benign crystals, or it could mean infection.
