Urinary Incontinence Treatment

Urinary Incontinence Treatment | Currae Hospitals | Mumbai, India
Like every possible disorder that has affected mankind over the ages, there are a lot of misconceptions surrounding urinary incontinence (loss of bladder control)
that can clog treatment and delay in arresting the condition. The commonest myths about incontinence include
Urinary incontinence is part of the aging process
While our body does change with the onset of age, we would do well to remember that incontinence isn’t anything less than an abnormal condition and definitely not an inevitable part of aging
Precious little can be done to treat urinary incontinence in elderly people
Currae specialists will be glad to assure you that there are ways to reign in incontinence. Early diagnosis can radically improve or totally reverse the condition
Surgery is the only successful treatment
No, surgery is just one option, that too primarily for stress urinary incontinence (SUI). There are ample behavioural therapies, lifestyle changes, exercises, medication and new technology that can be used to reign in incontinence
Less fluid intake will improve incontinence
On the contrary, limiting fluids with a vengeance results in more concentrated urine, one that irritates the bladder and worsens the problem. Consuming enough fluids and allowing a couple of hours between trips to the restrooms keeps the urine diluted and helps maintain normal bladder capacity
Absorbent products are the only option for homebound people or those in long-term care facilities
They most certainly aren’t. For some people, a curative intervention like bladder training, or planned and incited voiding, can yield results. The doctor settles on absorbent products only if these options have failed

Did you know that there are different types of urinary incontinence?

Functional inconsistence in which a physical or mental condition prevents you from reaching the washroom on time (eg severe arthritis might prevent one to take off their pants on time)

Mixed incontinence where there is more than one type of urinary incontinence

Overflow incontinence is characterized by constant dribbling because the bladder doesn’t completely empty out

Stress incontinence is the condition in which urine leaks unless you exert pressure on your bladder by activities like coughing, laughing, sneezing, exercises or lifting heavy objects

Urge incontinence is characterized by sudden intense urges to urinate followed by an involuntary loss of urine
