Urinary incontinence or bladder incontinence is a term that is most commonly associated with bladder problems. It can be one of the most embarrassing problems as the leakage of urine cannot be stopped, and even a minuscule activity can lead to urinary discharge. They can be minor in some cases but over a period they can give rise to a condition where even a general cough or sneeze can leak urine. In extreme circumstances, the need to urinate would be severe that a person could not even get to the toilet in time. It is not exactly a disease but a symptom and can lead to many other conditions if left unchecked. These symptoms have to be checked with a urologist. The leading incontinence causes are our everyday lifestyle and habits. Other types of causes include Stress Incontinence, Urge Incontinence, Overflow Incontinence, Functional incontinence and mixed incontinence. Many factors attribute towards urinary continence - some include the food that we eat including caffeine, alcohol, carbonated drinks, corn syrup and foods that are high in spice. Other factors could include more severe health factors like pregnancy, childbirth, menopause and neurological disorders. A urologist can perform a simple urinalysis to diagnose its condition. The Incontinence Treatment includes mostly of behavioral techniques such diet management and trip plans to the toilet when the urge to urinate comes. In some cases, incontinence medications are also prescribed that are helpful to an extent. Adult diaper pads could be used for elderly patients for whom the drugs might not work.
