Los­ing con­trol of blad­der?

Health & Nutrition - - SELF CARE -

Ac­cord­ing to re­search, at least one per­son in 10, aged 65 or above, suf­fers from uri­nary leak­age. Any loss of con­trol of urine is called uri­nary in­con­ti­nence. What you can do Don’t stop drink­ing wa­ter. Some peo­ple with in­con­ti­nence may limit their fluid in­take to avoid ac­ci­dents, but not drink­ing enough wa­ter can cause de­hy­dra­tion, which is par­tic­u­larly harm­ful for older adults. Limit al­co­hol, cof­fee and tea, both caf­feinated and de­caf­feinated, as they can ag­gra­vate in­con­ti­nence. Per­form pelvic floor (Kegel) ex­er­cises.
