Dr. Markland on vitamin D supplementation and OAB

“We did not happen to find that vitamin D compared to placebo lowered the odds of having incontinence at year 2 or year 5. Nor did it lower the odds of having overactive bladder symptoms at year 5,” says Alayne Markland, DO.

In this video, Alayne Markland, DO, discusses the background and key findings from the recent Journal of Urology study, “Effect of Vitamin D Supplementation on Overactive Bladder and Urinary Incontinence Symptoms in Older Men: Ancillary Findings from a Randomized Trial.” Markland is an associate professor of medicine in the Division of Gerontology, Geriatrics, and Palliative Care at the University of Alabama at Birmingham.
