Urinary or bladder incontinence is the unintentional
loss of urine. Although about half of the elderly have episodes of incontinence, bladder problems are not a natural consequence of aging, and they are not exclusively a problem of the elderly. Urinary incontinence can be improved in 8 out of 10 cases.
Incontinence has a number of causes. Women are most
likely to develop incontinence either during pregnancy and childbirth, or after the hormonal changes of menopause because of weakened pelvic muscles. Older men can become incontinent as the result of prostate surgery. Pelvic
trauma, spinal cord damage, caffeine, or medications, can also cause episodes of UI. Other factors that contribute to bladder incontinence include decreased mobility or impaired thinking (such as forgetfulness, confusion, or
senility), particularly in combination with drugs such as sedatives, sleeping pills, and alcohol.
