  1. Thank you Dr. Most informative and useful. I also have B P H and managing through lifestyle changes and medication. What is puzzling is that the urinary flow is not uniform on all days and sometimes it appears quite normal and other days troublesome. Seeing many ads of a drug called Prosman in the newspaper. Any feedback of its efficacy??

  2. DEAR DR VIVEK

    ENLARGED PROSTRATE GLAND IS VERY USEFUL FOR ELDERLY PERSONS SPECIALLY FOR THOSE WHO

    CROSSED 70 FREQUENT URINATION WHICH IS VERY COMMON DURING THE NIGHT TIME. ALL IN ALL

    VERY GOOD ARTICLE .

  3. Excellent presentation. very clear and matter of fact.
    could have included some information on medicines especially for increasing the
    flow of urine and when there are no other complications.
