A 39-year-old female asked:

Does an over active bladder cause depletion of water soluble vitamins?

No: The bladder is a muscular bag. "Over Active Bladder" simply means that the bladder muscle is contracting at times when it shouldn't. It doesn't effect the kidneys which is where water soluble vitamins are taken from the blood. Best wishes!
