Incontinence Doesn't Come Alone

Steve Gregg

Incontinence is a symptom experienced by over 25 Million Americans. And nearly all individuals with incontinence experience another disorder or disease before struggling with bladder and bowel concerns. Some individuals who manage incontinence may have prevented it with diet, focused exercise, and regular check ups, but in many cases, incontinence can only be managed after the fact.

The top health concerns that can lead to incontinence as a symptom include: menopause, enlarged prostate, prostate cancer, diabetes, multiple sclerosis, spinal cord injury, stress, childbirth, Parkinson’s Disease, aging, obesity, and severe constipation.

The key to living with more than one health concern really comes back to maintaining the basic fundamentals of good health: sleep, diet, exercise, stress management, and regular checkups.
