Adult incontinence shouldn't stop you from enjoying your life. These tips can help you and your friends live life to its fullest – despite bladder leaks.
Living with adult incontinence? Well, you’re in good company — about 1 in 3 women experience bladder leaks. Here are great ways to help your sensitive bladder and live life as usual.
Zumba and zucchini
Healthy eating and exercise habits can help shed pounds, and weight loss can relieve pressure on your bladder.
Reenergize your exercise
The stronger the muscles in your pelvic floor, the more control you'll have over leaks when you need it. Doing Pelvic Floor Exercises a few times a day goes a long way to keeping those muscles strong so they are ready when you are.
Re-think your drink
Enjoy your morning mocha latte, but order it “half-caf” or decaf because caffeine can stimulate the bladder and lead to more leaks.
Keep a diary
Make an appointment to talk to your doctor about your sensitive bladder. Share notes on when and why your bladder leaks, as these are valuable clues for your doctor.
