In this session of Dr. Gilbert Hosts, special guest Dr. Victor Nitti shared his expertise on urinary dysfunction and Parkinson’s disease and answered audience questions live.
Many people with Parkinson’s disease (PD) experience difficulties with their urinary function. Urinary frequency, urgency, leakage, and incontinence are all common and challenging problems that can affect your quality of life. Yet because these symptoms can seem embarrassing or private, many people don’t want to talk about it, even with their own doctors.
