Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues:

It is a great honor for me to be a guest editor of the official journal of the International Society of Men's Health, Journal of Men’s Health.

There is increasing interest in various comorbid health conditions that can affect BPH_LUTS. It is thought that several comorbid conditions related to aging have a wide range of effects on BPH_LUTS. For example, metabolic syndrome affects prostate growth in various aspects and contributes to the deterioration of LUTS by affecting bladder function. By binding to vitamin D receptor, vitamin D is known to increase prostate cell differentiation, decrease cell proliferation, and increases apoptosis. Many studies have shown an association of vitamin D with BPH_LUTS and vitamin D supplementation has been reported to have a positive effect on BPH_LUTS in several clinical studies. In relation to testosterone, which is one of the most important issues in aging males, there are many researches related to the prostate cancer risk and BPH progression of testosterone treatment. In addition, studies are needed on other health conditions and complementary/alternative approaches that may be related to BPH_LUTS, such as chronic kidney disease, sarcopenia, dementia, mood disorders, life style modifications, and complementary/alternative medicine, etc. Therefore, the goal of this special issue is to update the knowledge of the comorbid health conditions to clinicians and provide a comprehensive collection of original articles and reviews. This special issue is not limited to researchers in BPH_LUTS; it also welcomes submissions from researchers who study the comorbid health conditions related to prostate cancer and chronic prostatitis including any other prostate diseases. We look forward to your submissions!

Examples of topic include as below:

-Role of metabolic syndrome in the development and management of BPH_LUTS

-The effect of obesity on BPH_LUTS

-The effect of vitamin D supplementation on BPH_LUTS

-The effect of testosterone treatment on BPH_LUTS

-Risk of prostate cancer and BPH progression related to testosterone treatment Vitamin D deficiency and prostate cancer

-Physical fitness, exercise and BPH_LUTS

-The role of sarcopenia in BPH_LUTS

-Chronic kidney disease and BPH_LUTS

-Dementia and BPH_LUTS; Mood disorder and BPH_LUTS

-The role of life style modification in the management of BPH_LUTS

-The role of complementary/alternative medicine in the management of BPH_LUTS
