How can one Prevent Enlarged Prostate Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia

Although you cannot prevent the prostate from enlarging, you can take measures to reduce your symptoms. Some of these measures include:


Limit your intake of liquids in the evening, especially drinks containing alcohol and caffeine. Cutting back helps to minimize the number of times you have to urinate during the night.

Ask your doctor whether you can change or eliminate mediations that may be aggravating the problem. These medications include antihistamines, diuretics, decongestants, antispasmodics, tranquilizers and certain types of antidepressants.
