The study revealed a clinical correlation between patients with a vitamin D efficiency and urinary incontinence.
The study found that higher vitamin D levels are indeed associated with fewer pelvic floor disorders. The authors concluded that the treatment of vitamin D deficiency in all women could improve overall pelvic muscle strength, decreasing the likelihood of problems like urinary incontinence.
