Consuming caffeine irritates the symptoms of fibromyalgia as well as adds to the sleep issues that prove prevalent in the disease.
Now, a new caffeine and urinary incontinence study shows that caffeine is tied to urinary incontinence in men. Double the reason for men with fibromyalgia to consider severely cutting their caffeine intake.
According to Medical News Today:
Men who consume about two cups of coffee a day, or the equivalent amount of caffeine, are significantly more likely to have urinary incontinence or a “leaky bladder” than men who drink less or none at all, according to new research from the US.
Senior author Alayne D. Markland, a professor at the University of Alabama at Birmingham, and colleagues, report their findings in a paper published online 2 January in The Journal of Urology.
In their background information they note while several studies have already established a link between caffeine intake and leaky bladder in women, the evidence for such a link in men is limited.
If still in need of the soothing warmth and flavor of coffee or tea in the morning, there are plenty of non-caffeinated versions of both on the market that taste amazing.
It’s worth it to make the switch so you can enjoy all the benefits without all the irritations.
