According to data from the CDC published in 2017, about 30 million adults aged 18 years and over or 12.2% of the American population suffer from type 2 diabetes.

Regarding the absence of data on the relationship between metabolic syndrome and urological diseases such as BPH, urinary tract stones, and erectile dysfunction in Indonesia, and the lack of public knowledge regarding these health problems, therefore we conduct screening and counseling at the Clinic of Universitas Brawijaya (UB) regarding BPH. and OAB.
