Association Between Pelvic Floor Dysfunction and Metabolic Syndrome
Pelvic Floor Dysfunction and Metabolic Syndrome
Keywords:Pelvic Floor Dysfunction, Pelvic Organ Prolapse, Urinary Incontinence, Stress Urinary Incontinence, Cross Sectional Study
The failure to properly relax and coordinate your pelvic floor muscles in order to perform a bowel movement is known as pelvic floor dysfunction. The current cross-sectional study's goal is to establish a link between metabolic syndrome and pelvic floor disorders. The syndrome is made up of a number of variables, including “insulin resistance, visceral obesity, atherogenic dyslipidemia, endothelial dysfunction, hereditary vulnerability, increased blood pressure, hypercoagulable condition, and psychological stress.” Objective: Association between “pelvic floor dysfunction and metabolic syndrome” in middle aged women. Methods: This article summarizes research from Jinnah Hospital that sought to ascertain the relationship between metabolic syndrome and abnormalities of the pelvic floor. 277 female patients were chosen for this cross-sectional investigation using a non-probability convenient sampling strategy. According to the inclusion criteria, information on female hospital patients aged 40 to 77 years old was gathered. Self-made questionnaires were filled by respective patients. Data analysis was performed in SPSS version 21. Results: There is no association between “pelvic floor dysfunction and metabolic syndrome” as the value is greater than 0.05. Conclusions: In middle-aged women, we were unable to find a connection between “metabolic syndrome and pelvic floor dysfunction.” We are well aware that women's dysfunction negatively impacts their quality of life and puts a strain on the nation as a whole on the socioeconomic front. Finding solutions to reduce this stress will benefit women and the nation as a whole in the long run.
