Abstract

Introduction. Diabetes, obesity and the metabolic syndrome are all associated with bladder dysfunction and over 50% of diabetic patients suffer some type of bladder dysfunction. We have recently shown altered bladder contractility in a rat model of type I diabetes (Vahabi et al., 2011), which is used as a model of diabetic bladder dysfunction.
Aim. To investigate bladder contractility in bladder strips from an obese rat model of pre-diabetes.
