Incontinence Facts

25 million Americans suffer from urinary incontinence, approximately 75 to 80 percent are women, though urinary incontinence affects men, too. Over 200 million people worldwide experience bladder leaks and there is often unnecessary shame and embarrassment associated with urinary incontinence, however, it doesn’t have to be that way with Veeda.

Incontinence is a very common medical condition of the urinary system, as the kidneys are meant to remove waste. Urine is stored in the bladder, but incontinence can occur when any part of the urinary system malfunctions. Ultimately incontinence is defined as the inability to control bodily functions either urination or defecation.

Although women over 40 years old tend to be at risk, one in three women over the age of 18 will experience incontinence, even if it is light bladder leaks (LBL). Men also over the age of 18 with an overactive bladder (OAB) can experience incontinence, though men between the ages of 70 to 80 will have a higher likelihood.
