Urinary Incontinence

Urinary incontinence is the loss of bladder control and is a common problem that affects men and women.  According to the American Urological Institute, millions of Americans suffer from urinary incontinence.  Studies have shown that there are many things that increase risk for urinary incontinence.  It is well known and assumed that old age leads to urinary incontinence but other factors can contribute such as pregnancy and delivery for women that increases with the number of children and includes vaginal delivery as well as C-sections.  Men who have prostate problems are at an increased risk as well as some prescription medications.  Obesity, diabetes, stroke, high blood pressure and smoking has also been linked to higher cases of urinary incontinence.

There are several types of urinary incontinence and it is not considered a disease in and of itself but considered a symptom of conditions.  Although linked to aging, it is not a normal part of getting old nor is it hereditary.  Urinary incontinence can be treated.  The types of urinary incontinence include Stress Urinary Incontinence (SUI), Overactive Bladder (OAB), Mixed and Overflow Incontinence.  To learn more about Urinary Incontinence, visit the Urology Care Foundation website.
