Prostatitis is a common disease of adult men, and its symptoms vary from patient to patient. However, chronic prostatitis can not be cured, and acute prostatitis can cause severe symptoms, which cause physical and mental pain and inconvenience in life and work. Common pathogens that can cause prostatitis include bacteria, chlamydia trachomatis, ureaplasma urealyticum, trichomonas, fungi, etc. Statistics in recent years show that a considerable proportion of prostatitis patients are car drivers, especially long-distance passenger, freight and taxi drivers. After investigation and research, we have concluded that automobile drivers are affected by their occupation and have the following risk factors for prostatitis:
1. Be sedentary. Working in a sitting position for a long time makes the pelvic cavity and prostate become congested due to extrusion, blood flow slowly stagnates, resistance to pathogens is weakened, and prostatitis is easily induced.
2. Insufficient drinking water. Due to the influence of driving work, timely and sufficient drinking water can not be guaranteed, which often makes the body in a state of mild dehydration, urine concentration, and prone to urethritis and cystitis, thus causing prostatitis. In addition, the accompanying constipation symptoms are not conducive to the health of the prostate.
3. Hold urine. Unable or inconvenient to urinate in time due to work constraints, which leads to artificial urine retention and increased bladder pressure. In the long run, the ability of the urinary tract and genital tract epithelium to defend bacteria will decrease, resulting in urogenital infection. More dangerous is that for patients with cystitis or post-urethritis, their urine can flow into the prostate tissue through the prostate tube, which is most likely to cause prostatitis.
4. Fatigue. Working for a long time, lack of sleep, physical exhaustion, anxiety, impatience, and fatigue often weaken the body's disease resistance, which is also one of the inducements.
5. Poor sanitation. Personal hygiene habits are not good. The bacteria in the infected areas such as furuncle and carbuncle or tonsillitis and dental caries can be directly transmitted to the prostate by blood, and the cause is mostly acute prostatitis. In addition, sitting for a long time often makes the perineum moist, especially in the hot summer, which also increases the chance of illness.
6. Irregular sex life. Some long-distance bus drivers have to travel through several provinces every time they leave, and often only return home in a few days. Too sparse or too frequent or excessive sexual life is not conducive to prostate health. Excessive laxity of sexual life, accumulation of prostatic fluid or semen, especially for those with urethritis or cystitis, can cause prostatitis. In addition, it can launch seminal duct dilation, seminal vesicle dilation and seminal vesiculitis, and seminal vesiculitis and prostatitis often induce each other. Excessive sexual life, physical fatigue, the prostate is in hyperemia for a long time or frequently and repeatedly, which is also easy to induce inflammation.
7. Bad habits. Many drivers have a habit of smoking and drinking, their bodies are poisoned, their circulatory system function is reduced, and their disease resistance is weakened. Especially drinking alcohol can aggravate prostate congestion.
Prostatitis, especially chronic prostatitis, is more difficult to treat. In addition, because of its work characteristics, drivers are the key population prone to the disease, and most of them can not maintain regular, regular and continuous comprehensive treatment, so the prevention of this disease is more important. In terms of prevention, corresponding measures should be taken for the above factors. For example, if you drive for about 1 hour, you should get off and exercise properly, move your waist and hips, and extend your limbs; Long-distance driving can be operated in shifts, with drivers taking alternate breaks; Drink more water and urinate more; Pay attention to personal and cab hygiene, and treat as soon as possible in case of infection. In addition, it is also necessary to pay attention to the law of life, adhere to physical exercise, enhance resistance and self-confidence, quit smoking and alcohol, eat less spicy food, prevent constipation, often take a hot tub bath, prepare thick and thin clean clothes for use when driving out, and pay attention to cold and warm protection. Symptoms should be diagnosed and treated as soon as possible, and delay is more difficult to cure.
