Living with Incontinence
- It is a medical condition more widespread than people would like to admit, and at the same time one of the least likely topics to discuss.
- If we get down to basics, our bladder is designed to store the urine that is continually produced by the kidneys until it is convenient to urinate, but when any part of the urinary system malfunctions, incontinence results.
- According to WHO reports, a quarter of the world’s population (15 % female and 10% male) suffers from incontinence. Research shows that almost 50% of elderly people suffer from incontinence of which the largest portion are elderly woman.
- The majority of people living with incontinence do not tell anyone about it, often not even their own doctor and especially not their friends. Family members are most likely to bring up the subject because they are directly exposed to it. It is not easy to be odour free when you have incontinence and most often the person will not realize the odour as our sense of smell will adapt to it. To top it all our sense of smell decreases with age, aggravated by chronic illnesses.
- It is very embarrassing if someone else brings up the topic of odour and this can cause a great deal of emotional stress and embarrassment. Most people affected by loss of bladder control separate themselves for fear of humiliation and loss of dignity. Young and older adults who suffer from incontinence often find employment impossible.
