MICHIGAN DOCTOR CHAIRS FEDERAL COMMITTEE CALLING FOR AGGRESSIVE TREATMENT OF URINARY INCONTINENCE

 MICHIGAN DOCTOR CHAIRS FEDERAL COMMITTEE
 CALLING FOR AGGRESSIVE TREATMENT OF URINARY INCONTINENCE
 The United States Public Health Service will release an important new clinical practice guideline on urinary incontinence in adults on Monday, March 23. Created by a private-sector panel of health care professionals and consumers, the guideline recommends steps that physicians and patients should take to aggressively diagnose and treat urinary incontinence, one of the most under-reported and under-treated illnesses of our time.
 Ananais Diokno, M.D., chief of urology at William Beaumont Hospital, Royal Oak, Mich., chaired the 15-member panel that developed the new federal guideline. Dr. Diokno will be available for interview for a limited time on the morning of Tuesday, March 24. Patients will also be available for interview at that time. Call Beaumont Public Relations at 313-551-0740 to schedule an interview appointment.
 More than 10 million men and women are affected by urinary incontinence in this country. The condition is most common in older women, but roughly one out of every four women between the ages of 30 and 59 has had episodes of incontinence as well.
 Half of all sufferers fail to seek medical help, although at least 80 percent of them could be cured, or their condition significantly improved, by following the steps outlined in the guideline.
 A U.S. Department of Health and Human Services news release on the urinary incontinence guideline, and the guideline document itself, will be available through Beaumont's Public Relations Department on Monday, March 23.
