Abstract

The traditional approach to diagnosing men with symptoms associated with benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) based on the American Urological Association symptom index may be limiting. There are often concurrent conditions that may be responsible for the urinary complaints of men with BPH, namely hyperglycemia. Both conditions manifest many of the same symptoms and complaints by patients, but treatment of one can lead to a missed diagnosis of the other.
