Millions of people are affected by incontinence and bedwetting, and the conditions are not discriminate of age or gender. Urinary incontinence is a condition that causes the involuntary leakage of urine, one which has a profound impact on quality of life for people everywhere. Some studies show that as many as 1 in 13 adults are incontinent, and 1 in 5 children will bed wet. Though incontinence is a common medical condition, many people still feel embarrassed to seek advice and discuss treatment and incontinence products – such as waterproof mattress covers – that can better their situation and alleviate them of worry.
There are numerous causes of incontinence. Generally, it is divided into four categories: stress, urge, functional and overflow. Incontinence products are effective at treating most of these categories, but the key is to identify why incontinence is occurring to find the best method of treatment.
For all types of incontinence and bed wetting, it's important to diagnose the condition by visiting a specialist in the field, or an urogynecologist. The urogynecologist will perform numerous tests to identify the cause of the incontinence and a physical examination to detect any medical conditions that may be attributing to incontinence. After diagnosis, there are various treatments for incontinence, many of which revolve around various exercises to strengthen pelvic muscles. There is also bladder training techniques and a variety of medications that can inhibit urinary incontinence.
However, one of the most important concerns with incontinence and bed wetting is how to deal with the issue on a daily basis. Incontinence does not have to affect your quality of life or disrupt your normal activities.
