South Asian Men Have More Urinary Problems Than White Men

Study finds that South Asian men have more urinary problems than white men, but are only half as likely to seek help.//

The urology study that was conducted on over 8,000 men has been published in the September issue of the urology journal BJU International, states that South Asian men suffer from more urinary problems than white men, but are less likely to seek help.

The researchers explained that men over 40 living in Leicestershire, UK, were randomly selected from the lists of family doctors. These selected men were then sent a questionnaire by post asking them about urinary symptoms, problems and use of local health services.

7,810 men completed the questionnaire – an overall response rate of 64 per cent. Although the response rate from South Asian men was lower – at 39 per cent - comparisons with the 2001 census showed that the respondents were representative of the age, socio-economic status and health profile of the area.

More than a third of the 409 South Asian men who replied (37 per cent), described at least one significant urinary problem, and compared with 29 per cent of the white men in the study.

Around a third of the men in each ethnic group told researchers that they felt that they needed help with their urinary problem.

Yet only a quarter of the South Asian men (25 per cent) who fell into this category had actually sought help for their problems, compared with more than half of the white men (53 per cent).

The differences were most pronounced when it came to problems storing urine in the bladder. South Asian men were approximately two to three times more likely to suffer from issues like urinating frequently, needing to go urgently, suffering from incontinence and having to get up to urinate at night.

"Lower urinary tract symptoms are common in middle-aged men and tend to increase with age" explains Mr Joby Taylor, Specialist Registrar in Urology, who car
