Getting Incontinence Help
Urinary incontinence, or the inability to control one’s bladder, is a frustrating problem that affects more than 25 million American adults. Learn about incontinence, myths about incontinence and how you can get the help you need.
Don't fall for the myth that, just because you had children or are getting older, incontinence is a given—plenty of mothers and older women have no such problem. Learn ways you can counteract incontinence as you age.
While incontinence is most common in women, it affects men of all ages too. There is a variety of protective products available to manage male incontinence specifically.
Using Incontinence Products
There are two main categories of incontinence aids to consider when choosing the right product for your needs: those worn with your own underwear and those that replace it. Find out which will work best for you.
If you have control over your bladder but wake up to use the bathroom several times during the night, you're experiencing what's known as "nocturia," or an overproduction of urine at night. Those who experience nocturnal polyuria produce a nighttime urine volume that's greater than 20 to 30 percent of the total 24-hour urine volume.
Talking to Your Doctor
Urinary incontinence is a medical condition that affects more than 25 million people in the United States. It can often be treated or managed, but many people are reluctant to seek medical attention because they feel embarrassed or think that it's a normal part of aging.
Urinary incontinence leaves the aging population at risk for impaired skin integrity. Learn what can happen to your skin and how to prevent skin breakdown.

Removing Urine Stains
Whether you're cleaning up after a cat or dog, a young child or incontinent adult, you know how difficult it can be to remove urine stains and odors. The reason that this type of stain is so difficult to remove is because of the uric acid crystals found in urine. Any type of urine from mammals, whether it is human or pet urine, contains uric acid crystals, which can only be removed by using an enzyme based cleaning product.
