It’s that time of year again, the time when people make New Year’s resolutions and what more common resolution is there than to lose weight?
But does weight loss help you urologically?
YES! Obesity is the number one cause of kidney cancer. In addition to that, weight loss has strong links to urinary leakage, erectile dysfunction, infertility and kidney stones.
No one is says that losing weight is easy and if I knew of a magic pill, I’d be home spending more time with my daughters than I currently do, but losing weight is possible. And let’s be honest, while there are certainly urological advantages to staying fit, the major benefit of losing weight is better cardiovascular health which is the number one killer of Americans.
Whatever your resolution for 2019 is, I wish you the very best and brightest over the upcoming year. Happy New Years everyone!
