Do you have a sudden urge to urinate and suffer from urine leakage? Don¹t like medications and side-effects?

Urine leakage does not need to be part of your life. We would like to know if vitamin D can help treat urinary symptoms. If you are female, age 50 or older and experiencing urinary leakage, you may qualify for this study. The UAB Continence Clinic, located at The Kirklin Clinic, is conducting a research study sponsored by the National Institutes of Health Office on Research of Women¹s Health (ORHW) and the National Institute of Diabetes, Digestive, and Kidney Disease (NIDDK). The study is examining the relationship between urine leakage and treatment with vitamin D. This 12 week study involves 4 clinic visits and two telephone visits.  Study visits are at no cost and participants will be compensated. Interested? Please call 975-3503 and mention the Vitamin D study. It is a blinded randomized controlled trial to see if Vitamin D will improve urge incontinence in women over 50.
