Total number of 461 diaries was used for analysis (see Figure 1). Women reported UUI more often compared to men (66% vs 34%, p<0.001). According to the presentation, participants who reported UUI and urgency had a higher BMI compared to the participants without UUI and urgency (30 vs 28, p<0.001 for UUI group; 29 vs 28, p=0.042 for the urgency group).
Overall, participants with UUI had a lower fluid intake compared to the non-UUI group. UUI group was 45% less likely to consume caffeine (OR=0.55, 95 CI 0.32;0.95, p=0.03) (Figure 2).
Data analysis shows that men and women who reported urgency on the LUTS Tool Questionnaire were 31% less likely to consume alcohol (OR 0.682, p=0.0675) after adjusting for BMI, age, and intake volume. There was no significant difference in the consumption of caffeine, carbonated and acidic beverages between urgent and non-urgent groups.
This study showed that people with UUI consume a lower amount of fluid and more likely to reduce their caffeine intake than people without UUI.
