Fluid intake above a healthy threshold predisposes to lower urinary tract symptoms, sleep interruptions and may affect symptoms of well-being.

What characteristics define women with Urinary Incontinence who respond to midurethral sling surgery, versus those who don’t?

Midurethral sling surgery (MuSS) outcomes are inconsistent. We lack knowledge of outcome moderators. This study will identify a prospective subcohort of women aged 18+ with incident successful and unsuccessful MuSS. Hypothesized moderators of MuSS outcome spanning the social ecological model (e.g., urinary microbiome, comorbidities, BMI, physical activity, race, occupation, income) will be compared across those with successful... more »

Are recurrent urinary tract infections associated with high dietary intake of animal fat?

Recurrent urinary tract infections (rUTI) are highly prevalent among women across the lifespan with significant impact on quality of life. Prevention strategies are utilized despite variable efficacy, high side effect burden and increasing antibiotic resistance. This study will identify a cohort of women with rUTI (>3/year) and inventory dietary intake. We hypothesize that moderate intake of animal fat and products with... more »
