Tips for a healthy bladder

e-Update from the National Institute on Aging

Keep your bladder healthy with these tips:
  • Drink enough fluids—especially water. Drink enough fluids so that the bladder needs to be emptied every 3 to 4 hours.
  • Limit alcohol and caffeine, which can make bladder problems worse.
  • Quit smoking.
  • Eat high fiber foods and drink water to avoid constipation.
  • Keep a healthy weight by eating well and staying active.
  • Do pelvic floor muscle exercises to keep muscles strong and prevent leaking.
  • Use the bathroom when needed to avoid infections.
  • Take enough time to fully empty the bladder when urinating.
