Bladder Control

Do You Have Bladder Control Issues?

Bringing up urinary incontinence, even with your doctor, is enough to make anyone squirm. But without treatment, you could suffer rashes, sores and urinary tract infections. So ask for your doctor’s help.

Urinary incontinence may be caused by medication side effects, weak or overactive muscles, nerve damage from some chronic conditions or an enlarged prostate in men. Age can contribute, too.

Describe symptoms to your doctor to guide your treatment plan. Your doctor might suggest bladder muscle exercises, a change in toilet habits, medication or special clothing.

Losing weight and drinking less caffeine could help ease symptoms, too. Take control of this problem and get back to doing what you love.
