QUEBEC CITY—Nearly one in 10 Canadian adults suffer from overactive bladder (OAB), according to a population-based survey.
Researchers analyzed survey responses from 4,499 individuals aged 18 years and older (mean age 47 years) and found that 9.4% of them reported having OAB. The prevalence was 10.2% in women and 8.5% in men. For the 18-39, 40-59, and 60-and-older age groups, the overall prevalence was 5.5%, 9.3%, and 16.6%, respectively.
Investigators presented findings here at the Canadian Urological Association annual meeting.
