Urinary incontinence or the accidental leakage of urine can happen at any age. Here are some of the most common causes.
Over time, diabetes can lead to nerve damage or diabetic neuropathy. One consequence is incontinence, which can happen at any age. Because nerves send signals that communicate between the brain and urinary system, any condition that causes damage to the nerves can potentially lead to incontinence. Other health issues, such as Parkinson’s disease and stroke may also lead to incontinence.
Traumatic Brain Injury
Injury to the brain or spinal cord such as with combat duty, car accidents and sports-related accidents, is a common cause of incontinence along the lifespan.
Urinary tract infection
Urinary tract infections or UTI’s are not only painful, but they also cause irritation to the bladder. The irritation may result in urge incontinence or a strong need to urinate. Sometimes the urge is so strong the bladder releases involuntarily. UTI’s are easily treated with antibiotics, so call your healthcare provider as soon as you notice any troublesome changes to your urinary habits.
Smoking, excessive alcohol consumption, obesity, and a sedentary lifestyle are all contributing factors to incontinence. Your doctor may be able to help you implement lifestyle changes to manage or eliminate your incontinence symptoms.
An enlarged prostate can block the urinary path, causing overflow incontinence. Prostate cancer is also associated with incontinence.
