Patients with lower urinary tract symptoms more likely to suffer from metabolic syndrome
Date:6/19/2009

New York, NY, June 18, 2009 Researchers have determined that individuals with mild to severe symptoms of lower urinary tract symptoms (LUTS) are more likely to suffer from metabolic syndrome (MetS), a collection of cardiovascular risk factors thought to be linked by insulin resistance). LUTS encompass voiding (incomplete emptying, weak stream, intermittency, straining) and storage (frequency, urgency, nocturia) difficulties.

Body measurements and blood pressure readings were done, and self-reported medical histories were taken.

The authors state, "These findings have important diagnostic and management implications. Patients who present with components of metabolic dysfunction should be routinely queried with respect to urological function, particularly voiding symptoms such as intermittency, incomplete emptying and nocturia, as well as the degree of associated bother. Sexual dysfunction symptoms, particularly erectile dysfunction, are similarly reported by the majority of men with MetS and should be routinely evaluated."

LUTS were assessed using the American Urological Association symptom index (AUASI), a clinically validated measure of urological symptoms. The AUASI was categorized into two groups as none or mild symptoms (AUASI less than 8) versus moderate or severe symptoms (AUASI 8 or greater). In this analysis MetS was defined as the presence of three or more of the
