What Is Urinary Incontinence?
Urinary incontinence is a condition characterized by the loss of bladder control. The symptoms can range from an occasional urine leak while sneezing, laughing, or coughing to a sudden urge to urinate that is so strong you may not even be able to reach the toilet.
Most people suffering from this condition experience minor urine leaks. However, it is an embarrassing occurrence that can affect your daily life. That’s why it is vital to seek proper medical help.
When to See a Doctor About Urinary Incontinence?
If your condition causes you to avoid favorite activities, limit social interactions, and negatively impact your life, you should see a doctor. In addition, urinary incontinence can increase the risk of falls and injuries in the older population due to frequent rushed visits to the toilet.
How to Reduce the Risk of Developing Urinary Incontinence?
Here are the things you can do if you want to reduce the likelihood of developing urinary incontinence:
- Quit smoking
- Maintain a healthy weight
- Practice pelvic floor exercises
- Avoid trigger foods and drinks
- Consult about changing specific medication
- Eat more fiber to reduce chances of constipation
How Is Urinary Incontinence Treated?
After the examination, Dr. Brown proposes the best course of treatment based on the cause of your urinary incontinence and other factors. That may include lifestyle changes, bladder training, pelvic floor exercises, or medications. In addition, you may have to undergo a surgical procedure to better control muscles responsible for urination control and take the pressure off the bladder.
Schedule an appointment with Dr. Brown, and get a personalized treatment plan for urinary incontinence.
What Can Trigger Urinary Incontinence?
Certain foods and drinks can stimulate your bladder and make you go to the bathroom more often. The substances responsible for this are called diuretics, and they help your body get rid of water and salt.
Here are some things that may trigger your urinary incontinence:
- Carbonated drinks
- Chili peppers
- Sugary and acidic foods such as citrus fruits
- Artificial sweeteners
- Large doses of vitamin C
- Urinary tract infections
- Prostate cancer
- Enlarged prostate
- Urinary tract obstructions
- Neurological problems
What Are the Different Types of Urinary Incontinence?
Urinary incontinence can result from physical problems, lifestyle, genetics, and environmental factors. Here are different types of this condition:
- Stress incontinence
This common type of urinary incontinence causes minor urine leaks when your bladder is under pressure. That can happen when lifting something heavy or exercising. It can also be triggered when laughing, sneezing, or coughing.
- Urge incontinence
People with this condition experience a sudden urge to urinate. The feeling is so strong that getting to the toilet in time becomes challenging, and many people deal with involuntary urine loss. Individuals with urge incontinence often need to urinate more frequently, even at night. The condition can develop due to infection, diabetes, neurological disorder, or another underlying disease.
- Functional incontinence
The involuntary loss of urine occurs because of a mental or physical impairment that prevents the person from reaching the toilet in time. Functional incontinence is more common in older individuals.
- Overflow incontinence
This condition occurs when the bladder doesn’t empty completely, so people experience frequent urine dribbling. People with overflow incontinence often feel a strong urge to urinate but only pass a small amount of urine because of blockage or weak bladder muscle.
- Mixed incontinence
Incontinence can sometimes result from different factors, causing people to experience more types of incontinence. People with mixed incontinence face occasional minor leaks and have a more frequent need to use the bathroom.
