Are your loved ones experiencing prolonged issues with incontinence? Managing urinary incontinence can be challenging. So, we have put together some effective ways to help your loved ones cope with the day-to-day challenges of urinary continence.
1. Fluid Management
Avoid or limit beverages that contain alcohol or caffeine such as coffee or tea. These beverages are diuretics, which increase urination and can cause bladder stress.
Additional bladder irritants to avoid include:
• Carbonated Drinks
• Spicy Food
BE SURE to drink sufficient plain water to stay hydrated!
2. Kegel Exercises
Frequent gentle exercises help strengthen the muscles that help regulate urination. Kegel exercises are one of the most natural and most effective ways to control urinary incontinence. Just a few simple Kegel exercises every day will improve the pelvic floor muscles, giving the person better control over the bladder.
3. Use of Urinary Incontinence Products
