NAFC's Many Resources For Managing Overactive Bladder

NAFCs Resources For Managing Overactive Bladder

Do you have overactive bladder? If you find yourself often running to the bathroom, you might be suffering from OAB – the urgent and frequent need to urinate. And, that urgent need may be difficult to stop, causing you to experience bladder leaks. Overactive bladder affects over 35 million people in the US, and can be a big disrupter to your everyday life. You may be struggling with this condition and wondering how to stop overactive bladder. But knowing more about the condition, what causes it, and how you can manage and treat it can make a big difference.

NAFC has tons of resources for patients living with overactive bladder. Check out the two listed below:

OAB RESOURCE CENTER

It also has a collection of downloadable guides that can help you manage your condition.

OAB TREATMENT TRACKER

Best of all, you can print out the email and bring it with you to your doctor’s appointment to help facilitate a discussion about treatment options for OAB.

Announcing The New OAB TREATMENT TRACKER!

Overactive Bladder Treatment Tracker

Overactive Bladder, that need to go to the bathroom urgently and often, affects roughly 33 million people in the US.  However, most people do not seek help for this problem, attributing it to getting older, and thinking there is nothing that can be done.  We think this is tragic, because there are actually so many treatment options available that no one should have to live with this condition on a day-to-day basis.

That’s why we’ve developed the OAB Treatment Tracker, a tool designed to assess where you are in treatment (even if it is at the beginning!) and provide you with some suggestions to look into.  It also provides you with an assessment of your treatment history to take with you to your doctor to help move the discussion in the right direction.
