Chronic Prostatitis: Bad Living Habits Are Not a Risk Factor

Chronic prostatitis/chronic pelvic pain syndrome (CP/CPPS) is a problem that many men have been plagued with. Although it is a very common disease of the urinary system, the etiology is still unclear. 

Recently, with the improvement of living standards, whether bad living habits such as obesity, smoking, and hypertension increase the risk of CP/CPPS has gradually become the focus of attention.

Recently, Dr. Zhang, from Harvard School of Public Health in the United States, collected information about life habits prior to the onset of CP/CPPS symptoms from the Health Professional Follow-up Study (HPFS), and explored the correlation between several major lifestyles (obesity, smoking and hypertension) and the risk of CP/CPPS, and the article is published on the J UROLOGY.
The HPFS study, which began in 1986, included 51,529 men aged 40 to 75. Every two years, the subjects received questionnaires about their living habits and health status. Since 2008, researchers began to use the NIH chronic prostatitis symptom index score (NIH-CPSI) to assess the pain symptoms of CP/CPPS in subjects and record the date of occurrence of these symptoms.
Those with NIH-CPSI pain scores greater than or equal to 8 and the onset of first symptoms after 1986 were enrolled in the CP/CPPS group (n = 653), while those who completed the CP/CPPS questionnaire without CP/CPPS-related pain were enrolled in the control group (n = 19138).
The results showed that the overall incidence of CP/CPPS was 3.3%. The incidence of CP/CPPS in subjects with baseline age less than 50 years was similar to that in subjects with age more than 60 years. Pubic pain (73.9%) and urinary pain (66.9%) were the most common pain symptoms. The rates of occasional, frequent, normal and persistent pain were 52.9%, 23.8%, 5.8%, and 3.7%, respectively. About half of the patients had pain intensity scores of less than 4, 40.4% between 4 and 6, and 9.6% more than 7.
There was no significant difference in baseline BMI, waist circumference, waist-hip ratio and smoking between the two groups. However, in terms of alcohol intake, hypertension, and physical exercise, the CP/CPPS group had lower alcohol intake, higher risk of hypertension and less exercise. 
Multivariate analysis showed no significant association between overall or abdominal obesity, smoking or hypertension, and CP/CPPS risk, but hypertension was associated with CP/CPPS risk in subjects without a history of prostatic hyperplasia/lower urinary tract symptoms.
Overall, in this study on a large sample, the cumulative incidence of CP/CPPS was 3.3%. Overall or abdominal obesity, smoking, and hypertension were not significantly associated with the risk of CP/CPPS. Since the etiology of CP/CPPS is still unknown, more prospective studies are needed to clarify the risk factors for this common disease.
Although studies have shown that bad living habits are not the main cause of chronic prostatitis and chronic pelvic pain syndrome, this does not mean that habits such as smoking, drinking and staying up late do not affect the condition. Active treatment combined with a good life, rest and diet can effectively promote recovery.
