Urinary incontinence occurs when a person is unable to control the bladder, leading to urine leakage. This often happens when you laugh or cough or may be characterized by a sudden, intense urge to urinate. While many people are affected by urinary incontinence, they may feel self-conscious about bringing up the subject with a professional. Doing so is important, however, because treatment options are available for those who are affected by this condition.
A Note About Lifestyle Changes
Urinary incontinence develops as a result of other conditions. For many people, limiting certain foods or beverages can eliminate this inconvenient symptom. These include alcohol, caffeine, chocolate, artificial sweeteners, carbonated drinks, spicy foods, foods and beverages high in vitamin C, and certain medications such as blood pressure and heart drugs. Many women experience incontinence during pregnancy that resolves when the baby is born. But what if the condition does not resolve on its own?
Treatment of Underlying Health Issues
Bladder infections and constipation can both lead to incontinence. Treating this issues will often resolve the problem. When men experience urinary incontinence, it can be a sign of prostate cancer or an enlarged prostate.
