Urinary incontinence (poor bladder control) is a common condition affecting 1 in 3 women, 1 in 10 men and 1 in 5 children in Australia (Continence Foundation Australia).
It affects around 5% of the world’s population, equating to approximately 300 million people worldwide. Although incontinence is more common as we age, it still affects many teenagers and young adults of all genders every day. Levels of incontinence can vary from small leakages to complete loss of bladder control which can impact a person’s quality of life. Appropriate management and support are crucial to ensure comfort and cleanliness.
Types and levels of severity of incontinence:
Urine leaks when exerting pressure on your bladder. E.g., when you: sneeze, cough, laugh, exercise, jump or do heavy lifting
Your bladder continuously leak/dribbles due to being unable to empty properly
You experience more than one type of incontinence – generally a mix of urge and stress symptoms
An impairment that makes you unable to urinate properly or make it to a toilet in time. E.g., you have arthritis, and you may not be able to unbutton your pants quick enough.
Many factors contribute to incontinence such as age, pregnancy/childbirth, menopause, obesity and other medical conditions such as mental health, dementia, arthritis, diabetes, and more. It’s important to maintain a healthy diet and perform regular exercise to promote good bladder health to aid prevention and manage your incontinence. If you read any of the types of incontinence above and thought – ‘yes, that sound like me’ it is recommended you seek medical advice from your doctor.
