3 Things You Can Do RIGHT NOW To Fight Incontinence

While most people wait until January to start making resolutions, we at NAFC feel that it’s always a good time for positive change.

HERE ARE THREE THINGS YOU CAN DO RIGHT NOW IF YOU ARE DEALING WITH INCONTINENCE.

1. WATCH YOUR DIET.

Yes, we know it’s the holidays and this is probably the last thing you want to hear, but ensuring you’re eating and drinking healthy foods is very important when you have incontinence. Sugar, caffeine, alcohol – these are all common triggers for those with incontinence so be careful when you consume them. Learn your triggers by keeping a bladder diary for a few days to see if you notice a pattern in what you’re eating or drinking and your incontinence. Often, modifying your diet can be a very simple step in incontinence management.

2. FIND AN ABSORBENT PRODUCT THAT FITS YOU.

Many people suffer from leaks even when they use protection. The key to overcoming this is to find a product that is comfortable to you and that fits well. A product that is too big, or too small, can cause leakage. And pay attention to the packaging – getting a product that isn’t designed specifically for incontinence will do you no good and just leave you feeling frustrated.

3. MAKE AN APPOINTMENT TO SEE YOUR DOCTOR AFTER THE HOLIDAYS.

Yes, it’s probably the last thing on your mind right now, but by making the decision to talk to someone about your incontinence you’re taking matters into your own hands. Plus, lining up a doctor’s visit now will ensure that you start the year off on a good note.
