The commitment of SPA in the urological area has focused on research and development at the company laboratories and in the subsequent marketing of drugs for the treatment of symptoms associated with benign prostatic hypertrophy (BPH).
SPA also offers a dietary supplement based on micronutrients with antioxidant action to contribute to the defense of the cells of the male urinary system, with greater attention to prostate cells.
BPH is a disease related to male hormonal changes due to aging and is characterised by the enlargement of the prostate gland, located in the lower urinary tract, below the bladder and around the urethra. The increase in prostate volume depends on the increase in the number of epithelial and stromal prostate cells and the formation of nodules. The enlarged gland may compress the urethral canal, causing urinary symptoms of an obstructive and irritative type. Compression on the urethral canal causes difficulty in taking urination, intermittent emission of urinary flow, incomplete emptying of the bladder, weak flow and stress. Irritative symptoms include increased urinary frequency (pollachiuria), need to urinate at night (nocturia), sudden need to urinate (urination urgency), and burning during urination. Such symptoms can arise from other pathological conditions, therefore it is always necessary to consult with the doctor for a correct diagnosis and timely treatment.
Prevention is essential in prostate diseases. In this context, increased attention to eating habits, the adoption of a healthy and balanced lifestyle and regular physical activity can significantly contribute to the maintenance of good prostate health.
For men after 45 years of age it is important to undergo periodic specialist examinations for the purpose of early diagnosis of BPH and, in general, of pathologies affecting the male urogenital apparatus.
