About 20% to 25% old people suffer from loss of bladder control, many cases of incontinence may be from diuretic pills and many medications can cause temporary incontinence.
Constipation, urinary tract infections, stones in the urinary tract, multiple pregnancies, and being overweight are other causes of incontinence.
The 2 most common types of persistent or chronic loss of bladder control:
1 Stress incontinence: occur when small amounts of urine leak out during exercise or when you cough, laugh, or sneeze. It is more common in women than in men, but it may affect some men after prostate surgery.
2 Urge incontinence: happens when the need to urinate comes on so quickly that there is not enough times to get to the toilet.
Causes include bladder infection, prostate enlargement, tumors that
pass on the bladder, Parkinson`s disease, and nerve-related disorders
such as multiple sclerosis or stroke.
