Caffeine linked to leaky bladder in men

The researchers looked at how many had urinary incontinence and how much caffeine they ate or drank, as well as how much water they took in from both foods and beverages. Overall, the men consumed an average of 169 milligrams of caffeine every day. That’s a little more than the typical 125 milligrams found in a cup of coffee. About 13 percent of the men reported leaky bladder, but only 4.5 percent had a problem considered moderate or severe – which is more than a few drops of urine leakage during the course of a month. After adjusting for the men’s age and other risk factors, the researchers found that those who ate or drank 234 or more milligrams of caffeine every day were 72 percent more likely to have moderate to severe urinary incontinence than those who consumed the least caffeine.
