Urinary Incontinence and How It Can Be Treated with Natural Remedies?

Urinary incontinence or the involuntary urination is a common and distressing problem, which may have a large impact on quality of life. The most common types of urinary incontinence in women are stress urinary incontinence and urge urinary incontinence. Women with both problems have mixed urinary incontinence. Stress urinary incontinence is caused by loss of support of the urethra which is usually a consequence of damage to pelvic support structures as a result of childbirth. It is characterized by leaking of small amounts of urine with activities which increase abdominal pressure such as coughing, sneezing and lifting. 

Additionally, frequent exercise in high-impact activities can cause athletic incontinence to develop. Urge urinary incontinence is caused by uninhibited contractions of the detrusor muscle. It is characterized by leaking of large amounts of urine in association with insufficient warning to get to the bathroom in time.

How to diagnose urinary incontinence?

  1. Stress test: The patient relaxes, then coughs vigorously as the doctor watches for loss of urine.
  2. Urinalysis: Urine is tested for evidence of infection, urinary stones, or other contributing causes.
  3. Blood tests: Blood is taken, sent to a laboratory, and examined for substances related to causes of incontinence.
  4. Ultrasound: Sound waves are used to visualize the kidneys, ureters, bladder, and urethra.
  5. Cystoscopy: A thin tube with a tiny camera is inserted in the urethra and used to see the inside of the urethra and bladder.
  6. Urodynamic: Various techniques measure pressure in the bladder and the flow of urine.
