Who hasn’t felt the pressing need to find a bathroom in a hurry? We all have, but does this mean we suffer from incontinence? Actually, the answer is no. Incontinence (urinary or fecal) is a medical condition where we have diminished control over our body’s ability to expel waste, most commonly urine. There are numerous causes for incontinence, and they can include:
Incontinence can be temporary in the case of a UTI or constipation but can be more persistent as we age or develop other health issues. There are also risk factors that can lead to the need to manage incontinence such as gender (women are more susceptible), age, obesity, and tobacco use can all increase the likelihood of developing incontinence. Besides the obvious inconvenience and embarrassment of incontinence, there are medical issues that can arise. Urinary tract infections, skin breakdowns, and an impact on your overall quality of life can all be connected to chronic incontinence.
