In fact, this could be one of the quickest and easiest resources for learning more about how to use your computer. The grandkids will be happy to share their tips and tricks for browsing the Internet and taking advantage of other computer programs that can make your life easier!

  1. Buy the Newest Technology on the Market

It is so much easier to learn about the ins and outs of a computer when you toss out the old technology and replace it with the latest upgrades. If you’re using a new desktop computer or laptop, you’ll be able to navigate the web quicker without long loading delays.

Diseases that Lead to Urinary Incontinence Symptoms

Most people know that loss of bladder control leads to urinary incontinence or light to heavy leakage throughout the day and night. And, although it is very common in older men and women, urinary incontinence is not inevitable for seniors as they age. But what most people don’t know is that urinary incontinence can emerge as a symptom of certain diseases that affect our nerve endings, such as diabetes and multiple sclerosis. Here’s why each of these diseases can affect bladder control, resulting in leakage:

Diabetes and Incontinence

incontinence

Type 1 diabetes occurs when the human body does not make enough insulin, caused by the immune system attacking and destroying pancreatic cells that produce insulin. Urinary complications from Type 1 diabetes can arise because of the damage the disease causes to blood vessels and nerve-endings in our bodies. In most people, this nerve damage slows the communication between bladder muscles and the brain, which causes the bladder muscles to release before the brain knows it’s time to visit the restroom.

Alternatively, nerve damage from Type 1 diabetes can also weaken bladder muscles so that the bladder cannot completely empty during urination. In this case, the bladder muscles do usually have time to communicate with the brain but, after urination, those affected will notice light to heavy leakage after they feel as though they’ve completely emptied their bladders.

Like Type 1 diabetes, Type 2 diabetes can also lead to urinary incontinence symptoms. However, symptoms of urinary incontinence in individuals with Type 2 diabetes usually results from body weight pressing against the pelvic muscles, causing the bladder muscles to release. In general, both Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes can cause frequent urination due to increased fluid intake, as diabetes can cause increased thirst as a result of excess glucose in the bloodstream. As you can imagine, drinking more liquids means increased, frequent stress on bladder muscles that are already weakened, often exacerbating the issue.

Multiple Sclerosis and Incontinence

ms and incontinence

Similar to diabetes, multiple sclerosis (MS) can also cause bladder control problems due to the delayed transmission of nerve signals between the bladder and the brain. Multiple sclerosis is a disease that causes the immune system to eat away at protective coverings on nerves, resulting in – among other symptoms – issues with nerve signals that usually tell the brain that the body needs to release urine. Like diabetes, damaged nerve-endings from MS can result in an overactive bladder that cannot hold the usual amount of urine, or it can also cause urinary retention, which is when the bladder muscles are too weak to properly empty, causing leakage after the body thinks it has fully emptied the bladder. Both of these conditions can cause a myriad of symptoms including urgent urination, delayed start of urination and nighttime urination.

The Solution: Wearever® Incontinence Products

Urinary incontinence can create major challenges in managing one’s work, home, and social life. Because of the constant fear of light to heavy leakage, people with urinary incontinence can feel a loss of self-esteem, self-confidence and general independence. However, if you have urinary incontinence, it’s important to remember that you are not alone and that there are resources and products out there that can dramatically improve your daily lifestyle and help you return to a sense of normalcy.

Obesity Increases Risk For Incontinence In Young Women

urinary incontinence

A recent study has revealed that obesity is linked to urinary incontinence in young women. Obesity has the ability to double the risk of urinary incontinence in young to middle-aged women; however, research suggests that young women can reduce this risk by maintaining a healthy weight, eating healthy, and exercising daily.

Obesity and Incontinence

When compared with women of average weight, researchers from the University of Queensland found that obese women ran twice the risk of developing urinary incontinence. It’s believed that the excess weight surrounding the abdomen places pressure on the bladder, leading to incidents of incontinence. In their study, the University of Queensland examined approximately 14 other studies that involved 47,293 women across eight different countries that expressed concerns with incontinence. In their findings, they discovered that nearly 35% of women who were overweight were more likely to have urinary incontinence. However, no differences were found between women younger than 36 and those 36-55 years of age. This finding is quite significant since countless studies that were previously carried out found an increased risk of urinary incontinence amongst older women. Now, it seems that younger women may have this risk. In light of this discovery, the researchers at the University of Queensland stated, “This result point to the importance of excess weight, above and beyond age-related risk” (source).

Additionally, there were a few limitations with the findings. For example, only five of the studies they examined accounted for the women who had given birth. They also did not specify the different categories of obesity. Tayla Lamerton, a PhD candidate in women’s health at the University of Queensland in Brisbane, explains, “We know that urinary incontinence can be a complex issue, especially among younger women…understanding overweight and obesity as a determinant of urinary incontinence could play a role in the way we counsel those affected by the condition, and our findings provide a building block to further explore lifestyle interventions for preventing and managing incontinence.”

For now, researchers recommend that obese women take the proper measures to live a healthier lifestyle. A reduction in weight could very well alleviate the pressure placed on the bladder and pelvic floor muscles, and therefore, reduce the symptoms of incontinence.

How Often Should You Get Screened For Incontinence?

urinary incontinence

The Women’s Preventive Services Initiative released new and updated guidelines for annual urinary incontinence screening for women. Since urinary incontinence can affect women of all ages, it’s essential for them to take part in yearly screenings to ensure peak urinary health. How annual gynecological appointments are highly important for women to take part in, the same concept is being applied to these urinary screenings. With these annual screenings, specialists will be able to note any warning signs of the development of urinary incontinence, as well as help manage it properly.

Urinary Screenings

Currently, urinary incontinence affects approximately 51% of women. While urinary incontinence impacts one’s ability to control their bladder, it also hinders them in other ways. Urinary incontinence can greatly harm one physically, functionally, and even socially. Unfortunately, plenty of negative stigma surrounds this affliction, leaving women and even men embarrassed to discuss their problem with friends, family, and professionals. Across the globe, many women are disinclined to talk to their health care providers about their urinary incontinence, leaving their problem untreated and overlooked. Without treatment, the symptoms of urinary incontinence can grow increasingly worse.

According to the South African Urogynaecology Association, there is a severe lack of studies that regard the widespread presence of urinary incontinence in South African women. It’s easy to assume that the lack of these studies are directly correlated with the fact that many women are hesitant to admit their problem. On their website, the South African Urogynaecology Association explains, “It has been suggested that the prevalence of incontinence and urinary dysfunction globally is lower in Black and Asian women than in White women. However, in the Western Cape the prevalence of daily UI in Black women was 17.2%, in Cape Coloured women 12.8%, and in White women 13.2%” (source).

The New Guidelines for Urinary Screening

The Women’s Preventive Services Initiative came together and created a new set of guidelines that promote annual screening for urinary incontinence. These screenings will help determine if a woman has urinary incontinence and examine how it affects her daily life. Currently, the guidelines to the new screening requirements are published in the journal, Annals of Internal Medicine.

With proactive treatment for urinary incontinence, doctors can help women manage their symptoms and lead an improved quality of life.

Top 3 Labor Day Destinations in the United States

Sept3

In the United States, Labor Day is widely known as the unofficial end of summer. Schools are starting their fall semesters, temperatures are cooling down and travelers are taking their last vacations before the winter holidays. Where you choose to vacation this Labor Day weekend will likely depend on what you and your family seek in a vacation, from bustling cities to nature retreats to beautiful beaches. If you’re still not sure where to vacation, check out these top 3 Labor Day destinations and get to planning:

  1. For the City Lover: Orlando, Fla.

From the adults to the grandkids, Orlando is a classic vacation destination full of activities that the entire family can enjoy. This central Florida city boasts some of the most thrilling theme parks in the United States, like Walt Disney World, Universal Parks & Resorts, SeaWorld Orlando and many more. But, if amusement parks aren’t your cup of tea, you can still relish in tons of other entertainment, shopping and outdoor excursions that Orlando has to offer. Experience America’s rich artistic history in the Orlando Museum of Art, go on a shopping spree at The Mall of Millenia or The Florida Mall or even take your adventures to the Atlantic Ocean with a dolphin tour. We can feel the sunshine just thinking about it!

  1. For the Outdoor Enthusiast: Redwood National Park, Calif.

The tallest trees on the planet call Redwood National Park “home,” attracting nature-loving tourists from all around the world. In fact, the tallest tree on Earth, aptly named Hyperion after the Greek Titan, is located in Redwood National Park. It has grown to stand over 379 feet tall in its roughly 600-year lifespan. In addition to seeing the towering coast redwoods, Labor Day weekend visitors can also take advantage of scenic drives, hiking, bicycling, kayaking, horseback riding, searching tidepools for marine life and much more.

  1. For the Beach Bum: Charleston, S.C.

Charleston, South Carolina’s largest (and oldest) city, is known for its traditional southern charm, fragrant jasmine blossoms and — most importantly — its nearby beaches! Look no further than Folly Beach this Labor Day weekend if your idea of the perfect vacation involves relaxing in the sand with a good book or hitting the waves. And, when the sun starts to set, you’ll be close to all the nightlife Charleston has to offer since Folly Beach is only about a 30-minute drive from downtown.

Regardless of the destination you choose this Labor Day weekend, remember to be safe and travel comfortably and worry-free of leakage by packing all your Wearever incontinence products. Happy travels!

Men Tend To Deal With Incontinence Over Seeking Help

According to the Urology Care Foundation, anywhere from a quarter to one-third of Americans suffer from urinary incontinence. Unfortunately, this statistic isn’t nearly as definitive as the numerical data of other common medical conditions simply because many who have urinary incontinence don’t always seek help.

Far too often, patients are too embarrassed to tell a doctor about their urinary incontinence and its associated symptoms, ultimately letting themselves suffer in silence. While there is absolutely no shame in seeking treatment for urinary incontinence, many Americans would rather submit themselves to the ever-enduring painful spasms. This is especially true for men.

Although we generally associate cases of incontinence with women, it’s not uncommon for men to have it either. However, since incontinence is strongly associated with women, men who do develop it feel too ashamed to speak up. While this greatly hinders the capability of incontinence studies, it also forms the stigma that incontinence is a ‘woman’s affliction’. Doctors, researchers, and other medical practitioners are working hard to end this inaccurate ideology and give both men and women the confidence and assurance to speak up about their battle with urinary incontinence.

Urinary Incontinence in Men

The true number of men who suffer from urinary incontinence is very much unknown. This is largely because many studies on urinary incontinence are centered around women, as well as the fact that most men don’t seek treatment for it. In one study conducted by the National Association for Continence, research showed that roughly 18% of men with symptoms of incontinence discussed the issue with a doctor (source). And while that 18% is only comprised of the few men who stepped forward and admitted their ailment, that still leaves over millions and millions of Americans with undiagnosed symptoms.

Additionally, in a separate study organized by UT Southwestern and published in the journal Urology, researchers found that men who suffer from stress incontinence–incontinence that occurs from physical activity, coughing, exertion, etc.–will suffer the symptoms for approximately two years before seeking help from a medical professional. Additionally, about one-third will wait for more than five years (source).

Diagnosis and Treatment

Urinary incontinence in men could develop as a side effect from certain medications, surgeries (especially prostatectomies), aging, and more. It’s true that male incontinence is not as widespread as incontinence in women, but it is still a very common occurrence. In light of this pressing issue, Dr. Joceline Fuchs, Assistant Instructor of Urology, explains, “Our goal is to spread the word that effective treatments exist for men with stress urinary incontinence, but also to facilitate an immediate and accurate diagnosis among stress urinary incontinence patients.” It’s true, there are many different treatment methods that greatly help soothe symptoms, decrease the frequency of urination, and altogether improve the quality of life for many patients. Unfortunately, even with this information out there and prominent, millions of men and women still refuse to seek treatment.

To get a better understand as to why so many men hide their pain with urinary incontinence, the researchers at UT Southwestern decided to conduct an alternative study. In this study, researchers reviewed the cases of 572 men who were evaluated for anti-incontinence surgery in Dallas, Texas between 2007 and 2017. In their research, they found that the median length of time the men waited to seek professional help was 32 months. More than a third of this group waited over five years. Additionally, the group of patients who were in their 80’s claimed to of waited approximately seven years.

Currently, doctors and medical officials are still working tirelessly to show that urinary incontinence in men is entirely normalized. Most importantly, seeking treatment can make all the difference in their lives.

4 Ways to Meet New Friends as a Senior

elderly

Getting yourself out into the social world and meeting new people can be hard for people of all ages. Whether you’ve relocated, lost touch with old friends or simply retired, meeting new friends as a senior can be particularly challenging. Gone are the days of easily meeting new people at school, work or your children’s extracurricular events. So, it’s important to take advantage of every opportunity to mingle with new faces. In fact, according to a Michigan State University study, some people experience the same positive effects on health resulting from strong friendships when compared to relationships with family members. If you don’t know how to get started, check out these four fun ways for seniors to meet new friends:

  1. Enroll in an Interesting Class

There are tons of amazing public classes out there for every hobby that fascinates you, from painting and writing to dancing and gardening. Once you’re surrounded by like minded people, it’s much easier and natural to socialize and find common interests. Plus, if you attend regularly, the classes will help you refine your communication skills, so you’ll learn how to socialize with new friends anywhere!

  1. Engage with social media

Social media isn’t just for the millennial generation. It’s also a great tool for seniors to meet new people in their communities. The digital world is full of opportunities to develop real-life or online relationships with friends and support systems. Your grandchildren will certainly be impressed once they figure out how savvy you are on social media!

  1. Volunteer

Find a cause or issue that you’re passionate about, and volunteer alongside people who share that same enthusiasm. If you love helping animals, try a local pet shelter. If art or history excites you, consider reaching out to a museum in your area to see if they have volunteer openings. The opportunities are truly endless.

  1. Join a Senior Center

Senior centers are often associated with Bingo night and bowling, but most centers have moved passed these stereotypical offerings and have evolved their activities to include fun, entertaining things like karaoke, field trips, concerts and more. These are just a few of the many opportunities senior centers present for bonding with fellow seniors!

Now, who’s ready to get out of the house and socialize? Before you head out into the world, don’t forget your Wearever incontinence panties and incontinence briefs to help keep you dry from light to heavy leakage while you’re making new friends!

Celebrities Discuss Their Lives with Incontinence

From television stars to supermodels, many celebrities are using their public visibility to discuss living with urinary incontinence and encourage open, healthy conversation about the topic. These celebrities are speaking out in solidarity to reinforce that leakage does not discriminate based on age, profession or fame. Rather, millions of people across the United States are living with urinary incontinence for a variety of reasons, including pregnancy, child birth, health conditions, diet, stress levels and more. Check out what these four celebrities have to say about overcoming leakage and regaining their confidence throughout their experiences with incontinence:

Kris Jenner

Kris-Jenner

Best known for being the fearless leader of the Kardashian-Jenner family, Kris Jenner opened up to her fans about her life with urinary incontinence during an episode of the family’s reality television show, “Keeping up with the Kardashians.” After experiencing light leakage while exercising and laughing, Jenner decided to visit a doctor on camera. According to his observations, Jenner’s doctor concluded that she was experiencing stress incontinence and recommended pelvic exercises to help prevent leakage. The most important thing Jenner asks women with incontinence to remember? “People think they’re the only ones dealing with this. Light bladder leakage is not a big, bad monster, and it’s nothing to be ashamed of,” she said. “Once you prepare yourself, you can laugh and jump and sneeze, and do it with confidence.”

Chrissy Teigen

Chrissy-Teigen

Being a world-renowned supermodel and food author keeps Chrissy Teigen quite busy. But, recently, Teigen added yet another role to her resume — mother of two. Teigen and her husband, singer John Legend, welcomed their second child, a baby boy, this past May. She bravely opened up to the public about not only her struggles with postpartum depression, but also adjusting to postpartum incontinence. “No one told me I would be coming home in diapers, too,” Teigen said earlier this year on Twitter, referring to returning back home after giving birth to her son. However, this is quite common for mothers after giving birth. In fact, up to 50 percent of women experience changes in urinary control during and after pregnancy, according to Roger Goldberg, the director of urogynecology research at the University of Chicago’s NorthShore University HealthSystem. Simply, women experiencing postpartum incontinence are not alone.

Sheryl Underwood

Sheryl-Underwood

Comedian and talk show host Sheryl Underwood wants the world to know she is not ashamed of her urinary incontinence, something she has experienced for over ten years now. According to Underwood, she first noticed her leakage after her partial hysterectomy surgery. Being a young, successful comedian, Underwood needed a solution that could help keep her dry throughout the day, so she turned to incontinence products and hasn’t looked back since. “I wasn’t going to run from [incontinence]. Most people would feel a kind of concern,” she said. “You don’t want to have to worry. Most people would be ashamed. I’m not because this is now a regular part of my life.”

You should never feel alone throughout your experiences with incontinence. There is a warm, embracing community of people who are going through the same thing, from celebrities and business people to stay-at-home parents.
