Q.

What is urinary incontinence and how common is it?

A.

Urinary Incontinence, or bladder leakage, is defined as any involuntary leakage of urine. It is a symptom or combination of symptoms related to the two functions of the lower urinary tract system: urine storage and bladder emptying. Symptoms are sometimes related to temporary or reversible conditions.

Over 65 million American men and women experience bladder leakage. That’s about 1 in 4 adults. For more details on the commonality of urinary incontinence watch the video below.

Q.

How can i prevent and manage accidents?

A.

A weakened or overactive bladder doesn't have to keep you from living your life. Here are some things you can do to promote bladder and urinary health.

  1. Keep an eye on your diet
    Losing weight can prevent the onset or help relieve symptoms of stress and mixed incontinence. The reduction of body weight will reduce added pressure put on your bladder and the pelvic floor, therefore reducing leaks when laughing, coughing, sneezing and other physical activities.

    It is also important to avoid or minimize foods and drinks that can irritate the bladder. These include spicy and acidic foods (like tomatoes and citrus), dairy, alcohol, caffeine, carbonated drinks, fruit juice, and coffee (including decaf).

  2. monitor what you drink
    When you have bladder leakage you may be inclined to decrease your fluid intake. But actually, to keep your bladder healthy, you should stay hydrated by drinking approximately six to seven 8-oz glasses of water a day. This could vary slightly depending on your size and physical activity level, so listen to your body signals on how much to drink to stay hydrated.

  3. exercising
    Exercising is important in many ways including to strengthen internal abdominal and pelvic floor muscles. Pelvic floor health is essential to prevent and reduce urine leakage. You can do this with Kegels, Zumba, yoga, Pilates, Tai Chi. There are helpful You Tube videos to help learn how to correctly identify if you are contracting the pelvic floor muscles.

  4. bladder retraining
    Retrain your bladder to hold more urine, for longer. This works best for people who have urge or mixed incontinence. While awake, empty your bladder at regular intervals (like 20 to 30 minutes or as long as you can manage). Each week, gradually increase the time between using the bathroom. Continue this exercise until you reach an interval of time that works for you.
