Overactive Bladder (OAB) / Urge Urinary Incontinence (UUI) & the Urinary Microbiome – Summary:

Nazema Y. Siddiqui, MD, MHSc, Associate Professor of Obstetrics & Gynecology at Duke University, discusses studies that investigate the urinary microbiome and its links to overactive bladder and urge urinary incontinence. She specifically identifies BMI, age, and estrogen levels as leading potential variables for predicting a patient’s urinary microbiome, and posits that longitudinal studies and computational models to better understand the microbiome will be necessary to make this knowledge useful for treatment and diagnosis of OAB and UUI in the future.
