Urinary incontinence

Incontinence - urinary

Urinary incontinence is any involuntary leakage of urine. It is a common problem which can have a profound impact on one's quality of life. Difficulty with bladder control can cause depression and limited social activity.

Urinary incontinence is usually treatable. Often it has a large psychological component, with the sufferer losing confidence. There is almost always poor muscular control. Getting back to normal involves practising using the muscles, and strengthening them with exercises.

Incontinence can occur at any age, but is more common in the elderly. One in three women over the age of 60 have some incontinence problems, but only half as many men. It is one of the most common reasons old people go into care facilities.

Obesity and diabetes are often associated with incontinence, but do not necessarily cause it. Several conditions such as diabetes can cause excessive drinking of fluids, and in turn higher production of urine. However, this does not necessarily cause incontinence.

For men, an enlarged prostate is the most common case of frequent urination and incontinence after the age of 40.

Brain disorders like multiple sclerosis, Parkinson's disease, strokes and spinal cord injury can interfere with nerve function and control of the bladder.
