The cause of Interstitial Cystitis/Painful Bladder Syndrome (IC/PBS) is largely unknown, however there are several theories. One of these theories links IC/PBS to other autoimmune disorders such as fibromyalgia. The practitioners at Women’s Excellence in Bladder Control recognize this important link and take care to address other autoimmune disorders the patient may be experiencing.

As one of the leading gynecology practices in Michigan, Women’s Excellence treats many women with endometriosis utilizing the latest pharmacological and surgical treatments. This large population of endometriosis patients, created the need for a bladder control center within the Women’s Excellence brand. According to Debbie Henry, certified nurse practitioner at Women’s Excellence in Bladder Control, “Women with endometriosis are about 40% likely to have concomitant IC/PBS and endometriosis itself may very well be a problem that develops as a part of an autoimmune syndrome”.

Autoimmune Disorders are difficult to diagnose and even harder to treat. Since disorders such as endometriosis and IC/PBS can be red flags to a bigger autoimmune picture, the practitioners at Women’s Excellence in Bladder Control are savvy in identifying the signs and symptoms of autoimmune disease and will initiate basic testing to determine if an autoimmune process may be in play. Women’s Excellence also has a network of specialty physicians that they refer to if autoimmune disease seems probable.

With autoimmune disorders being so common in the female population, it makes sense that a practice devoted to treating women be well versed in diagnosing, offering basic treatment, and referrals for such conditions. “At Women’s Excellence in Bladder Control, we are catching more and more cases of autoimmune disease in women who are already suffering with endometriosis and/or IC/PBS. We are succeeding where other practices are failing. We are treating the whole female patient, not just the bladder or uterus, and we are giving a lot of women new hope for a life with less pain”, adds Henry.
