Hope for Sufferers of Urinary Incontinence and Overactive Bladder
November 21, 2016
Managing bladder control issues at any age.
Urinary Incontinence, also known as Overactive Bladder, is often misperceived as ‘something that happens to older people’ — those 70, 80 years of age and above. The fact is, OAB affects many much younger, reaching down to adults – men and women, in their late 40s and 50s. According to The National Association for Continence, only 1 in 8 Americans with bladder control issues have been diagnosed. Seeking a urinary tract specialist is paramount and can mean the difference between controlling the condition or not. Join a urogynecologist and incontinence patient as they share professional and personal insights about this condition. Learn more about overactive bladder, and why the embarrassment and stigma of losing bladder control, prevents many from taking decisive action.
