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.
Incontinence ranges from a slight loss of urine after sneezing, coughing, or laughing, to complete inability to control urination and can broadly be divided into seven different types.
- Urge Incontinence - when you develop an urgent need to pass urine and can not get to a toilet on time. This is mainly due to damaged nerve passages along the pathway from the bladder to the brain causing an involuntary bladder contraction
- Stress Incontinence - caused by damaged or weakened pelvic muscles unable to prevent leakage during activities such as exercise, coughing, sneezing, laughing, or any body movement which puts pressure on the bladder.
- Mixed incontinence – this occurs as a combination of both stress and urge types of incontinence
- Overflow Incontinence – Leakage or loss of urine when you are unaware of the need to urinate, caused by a leak in the urinary system or a leakage due to the bladder’s inability to hold the quantity of urine produced.
- Incontinence from underlying health conditions
- Incontinence from surgery
- Incontinence from neurological disorders
