Although metabolic syndrome affects the incidence of overactive bladder, the relationship between this disorder and lifestyle habits remains unclear. In the present study, the researcher focused on lifestyle habits, and decreased pelvic floor function from lifestyle habits and obesity in order to establish the new nursing care to manage symptoms of overactive bladder. Women with overactive bladder had decreased pelvic floor function even though they were not obese. On the other hand, overactive bladder was not related with lifestyle habits among community-dwelling elderly people. These results indicated that decreased pelvic floor function is an independent risk factor of overactive bladder among women and the development of overactive bladder is different between sexes. Further studies are needed to analyze the relationship between overactive bladder and living habits by age and gender.
