In this video, Alayne Markland, DO, discusses the take-home message from the 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.
