Causes Of Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia
The cause of benign prostatic hyperplasia is unclear. Risk factors include type 2 diabetes, obesity, erectile dysfunction, not enough exercise and family history. Medications like calcium channel blockers, anticholinergics and pseudoephedrine may worsen symptoms. The underlying mechanism involves the prostate pressing on the urethra. Diagnosis is usually based on symptoms and analysis after ruling out other possible causes.

About 105 million people are affected globally. Benign prostatic hyperplasia typically begins after the age of 40. Half of the men age 50 and over are affected. After the age of 80, about 90% of men are affected. Although prostate specific antigen stages may be elevated in males with benign prostatic hyperplasia, the condition does not develop the risk of cancer.
Pathophysiology For Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia
As men age, the enzyme aromatase and 5-alpha-reductase increase in activity. 5-alpha-reductase and aromatase are responsible for converting androgen hormones into dihydrotestosterone and estrogen respectively. This metabolism of androgen hormones leads to a reduction in testosterone but raised levels of estrogen and DHT. Estrogen has a key role in the growth of cells in the prostate and DHT is an anabolic hormone many times more potent than testosterone that when combined, cause a synergy to induce benign prostate hyperplasia. >>>LIVE CHAT>>>

Certain medicines can increase urination difficulties by increasing bladder outlet resistance by enhancing smooth muscle tone in the prostate or bladder neck and contribute to LUTS. Alpha-adrenergic agonist medications, such as decongestants with pseudoephedrine can enhance bladder outlet resistance. In contrast, anticholinergic and calcium channel blockers medications can worsen urinary retention by promoting bladder muscle relaxation. Diuretic medications such as loop diuretics or thiazides can cause or worsen urinary frequency and nighttime awakenings to urinate. These medications have many side effects due to which our prostate doctor always use to treat benign prostate hyperplasia with the help of pure herbal medications.
