"Please teacher, may i go out?" (INCONTINENCE)

Do you find that you experience the urgency to urinate very frequently, even when the urine that you release is just a trickle or sometimes none at all?
These urinary symptoms include frequency, urgency, and burning. This is Incontinence.
For women, incontinence is a common side effect of childbirth. In men, most often it is a side effect of treatment for prostate problems.
Visit the doctor to be examined. If you have determined that it is not a case of UTI (urinary tract infection), then it is time not to take bladder control for granted. 
These are steps you can take to lower the chances of incontinence:

  1. Watch your weight kilos.  Just losing that excess weight can do wonders for women especially. Extra abdominal fat weakens the pelvic floor muscles and lead to stress incontinence (leaking when coughing, laughing, sneezing, etc.).                                           
  2. Smoking is a No-No. Smoking doubles the likelihood that a woman will develop stress incontinence. Nicotine is also linked to urge incontinence.                                                                                                                                                                                                                             
  3. Be active. This is proven in the Nurses' Health Study where middle-aged women who were most physically active were least likely to develop incontinence.
  4. Minimize bladder irritants. Caffeine, alcohol, carbonated drinks, artificial sweetener aspartame, spicy foods, citrus fruits and juices causes incontinence urges.
  5. Don't strain with bowel movements. As this can weaken the pelvic floor muscles. If your stools are frequently hard or take considerable effort to pass, ensure that your hydration is adequate with 8 to 12 glasses of water daily. Eat high fibre foods like whole grains and fruits and vegetables which helps with bowel movements against constipation. 
Yours always in good health and happiness,
