  • Urinary Incontinence

What lifestyle choices help prevent incontinence?

  • Healthy weight maintenance.
  • Avoid tobacco.
  • Kiegel exercises. These exercises can strengthen the urinary sphincter and pelvic floor muscles.
  • Avoid excess caffeine or other liquids that are irritants. You may be recommended to drink more or less water as a preventive measure, depending on your bladder problem.
  • Increase fibre intake. This may help prevent constipation.
  • Moderate physical activity.

How does aging affect occurrences of incontinence?

As the bladder muscle ages this may lead to decreased ability to store urine and elevated overactive bladder symptoms. With blood vessel disease, there is a risk of increased overactive bladder. Good overall health — including no smoking, moderate blood pressure and a healthful weight — can help limit symptoms of overactive bladder.
