Exercise And a New App To Help With Incontinence

Incontinence is an issue that over 25 million adult Americans deal with. Although the condition does not have any adverse affects on health, it is an inconvenience and can interfere with daily life as well as hinder social life. People that suffer from incontinence often withdraw themselves from social activity as a result of feeling embarrassed or ashamed of their condition. Luckily, there are various incontinence products on the market that are designed to help those affected lead normal everyday lives without having the worry of leakage being visibly apparent.

Improve Incontinence Within 8 Weeks

There is a revolutionary way in which incontinence is being managed and improved and it is in the form of the PeriCoach mobile app. This app acts as a coach and instructor, including an exercise challenge for those with incontinence which lasts eight weeks long. The PeriCoach system helps to improve incontinence along with a better quality of life.The developer of the app states that approximately 70 percent of females discovered that a structured and tailored program was beneficial in improving incontinence symptoms.

The eight-week challenge incorporates a virtual pelvic floor coach. PeriCoach works in conjunction with your workout equipment in order to strengthen your abdomen muscles, reducing the symptoms that are associated with incontinence. By partaking in the program for just a few minutes every day, incontinence patients can manage stress incontinence. Many individuals are unaware that by simply working out your pelvic and abdomen muscles, the strength of those muscles which are responsible for incontinence get stronger and stronger. This in turn reduces leakage over time.

The Role Bacteria Plays in Incontinence

bacteria-and-incontinence

In order to understand the role that bacteria plays in urinary incontinence, one must understand the way scientists understood bacteria’s habitation in the human urinary system. The urinary tract has long thought to have been a clean and sterile environment where no bacteria can grow. Since urine is constantly being produced and expelled from the system, it was thought, there was not enough time for bacteria to grow therein. Until today, researchers did not have the invasive tools needed to examine the growth of bacteria in the urinary system. As of today, however, the proverbial floodgates have opened and we now know more than ever about what is causing urinary incontinence.

The Cause of Urgency Incontinence May Lie In Bacteria

It was originally thought that urgency incontinence was caused by weak muscles, psychosomatic triggers, and abnormal signaling that prompted the bladder muscles to contract involuntarily. Unfortunately, these factors only seemed to account for about 3/5ths of the cases. That is, not all of the urgency incontinence cases could be explained by these causes.

Scientists and researchers continued to search for the other underlying conditions that made 2/5th of cases respond adversely – or not respond at all – to treatments catered to the above conditions. Researchers at the university of Oregon Health and Science University recently published a study in Frontiers in Cellular and Infection Microbiology, and found that that the bacteria that live in the urinary tract may hold the answers we seek (Source).

Bacteria Discovered In Urinary Tract

Even when clinical cultures come back negative, there still may be a host of biological life (i.e. bacteria) in the urinary tract. These bacteria may be responsible for many of the symptoms individuals with incontinence face. Researcher’s’ goal was to find how the urinary microbe is different between women with urgency urinary incontinence, and women without urgency urinary incontinence.

Healthy Bacteria: Key Differences Between Women With and Women Without Incontinence

They collected urine samples using a transurethral catheter and sequenced the samples with Illumina MiSeq., afterwards, processing them with workflow package QIIME. What that basically means is that the bacteria samples obtained were unadulterated or mismatched with other bacteria that may have come from external tissues. The findings were sound and suggested that there is a community of bacteria that live in the urinary tract! The most surprising finding: women with urgency urinary incontinence had less bacteria than women without urgency urinary incontinence.

This bacteria community creates a “microbial diversity” in women with urgency urinary incontinence. Between women with and women without urinary incontinence, it was discovered that women with actually had 14 less types of bacteria on average. The more severe your urinary symptoms, the less bacteria you are likely to have.

The Difference Between Healthy and Unhealthy Bacteria

We need both good and bad bacteria in our bodies. An unhealthy balance of good versus bad bacteria can be what leads to you feeling unhealthy or ill (Source). Bad bacteria can multiply and grow, leading to irritation, inflammation, and infection. Left untreated, bad bacteria can also contribute to a variety of health problems. Probiotics, defined as good bacteria actually help with a variety of bodily functions including digestion and homeostasis. Probiotics also help reduce the occurrence of urinary tract infections, a real concern for individuals afflicted by urinary tract.

Incontinence Underwear For Men and Women

Incontinence briefs and incontinence panties by Wearever are designed to minimize the bacteria that cause unpleasant odors. Bonded waterproof outer layers prevent leakage and spotting, while inner layers wick away moisture from the body while absorbing stray urine. The middle layer, made with Agion™ antimicrobial fibers prevent bad bacteria from multiplying and growing out of control.

Incontinence Supplies That Help You Get Your Life Back

How Incontinence Can Affect Daily Life

incontinence

Urinary incontinence, commonly referred to as UI,  is something that is a daily inconvenience and a constant struggle for those who have it. With the appropriate incontinence supplies, involuntary leakage of urine can be managed and dealt with. The unwanted annoyance of urine leakage can severely affect the social lives of those who suffer from it which in turn can lead to self-confidence issues along with a feeling of hopelessness.

Urinary Incontinence Causes Disturbances in Lifestyle

Urinary incontinence (UI) is a bladder control issue that:

  •  Happens to nearly one in four women world-wide
  • Affects a figured 15 million adult females in the United States
  • Affects nearly 25 million Americans and over 200 million individuals globally
  •  Is the result of an overactive bladder and is most prevalent in women who have had children, are pregnant, or are menopausal which explains why there are more female sufferers than male ones

Although urinary incontinence is non-life threatening and is by no means an indication that you are unhealthy, it is still an inconvenience that has emotional side effects resulting in a lack of quality of life. For those who once enjoyed exercise and daily work-outs may find themselves no longer able to enjoy these activities due to urine leakage when pressure and stress is applied to the abdominal area. As a result, sufferers tend to me less active and less social for the simple fact that they fear leakage may occur

Urinary Incontinence and Self Esteem Issues

Self-image along with confidence and happiness is compromised when you can no longer enjoy activities that you once previously enjoyed partaking in such as exercises that put added pressure on your abs. Those who are affected may be embarrassed when an accident happens due to urine stains and a fear that people around them may smell an odor. This can result in social isolation, being afraid that those around you may notice or make commentary.

Incontinence can also severely affect:

– Sleeping cycles which can make you feel exhausted come morning time, leaving you with limited energy to enjoy your day

–  Has the power to limit your ability to do activities leaving you feeling stray and alone

Wearever Adult Incontinence Products Can Improve Quality Of Life

Shame. Shame. Shame. Well… not anymore.

The thing you need to realize about urinary incontinence is that it’s a hidden condition. This is both good and bad. It’s good in that you are not the only person in this world suffering from bladder issues; other people have it too. But it’s bad because no one talks about it.  And so you feel like you are the only person in the world with an incontinence condition.

Since most people with this condition would want as little people as possible to know that they have it, they keep it secret. Technology has allowed adult incontinence products to become so thin, so discrete, that you won’t even notice when your friends are wearing them. So what ends up happening is two people, both belonging to the same social group, ashamed to admit their hidden condition, do not know that the other is suffering from incontinence!

Quality Male & Female Incontinence Products

Today, male and female incontinence products have empowered people to live better lives. One need no longer feel embarrassment when going outside because the absorbent material can keep you dry all day. If you do have a leakage accident it will not be noticed by the people around you. When exerting yourself by exercising, dancing or laughing you no longer need to fear that your “secret” will be discovered. That’s how good these products have become. You’re able to wear them all day, in full confidence that your condition will not give you away.

Decades ago, individuals wearing adult incontinence products stuck out like a sore thumb. Disposable diapers and other products would bunch up and cluster around the waist. Even the most untrained eye could pick up on the fact that you had a noticeable bulk around your pants or knickers. Moreover, the female and male incontinence products of yesteryear did not have odor absorption materials…so if you had an accident on a crowded bus, the smell would make it known, and people would turn to you.

But perhaps it being a simpler time, this allowed for more interaction. If a group of seniors, for example, saw that one of their friends looked to be wearing incontinence wear, they might have been more motivated to open up about their own incontinence issues. So the fact that one could easily be spotted wearing incontinence products might one not feel so alone. But this is a farfetched idea.

Incontinence Awareness

What we need as a society is more dialogue and awareness around the issues surrounding bladder incontinence. The emotional burden of dealing with incontinence does not have to be carried alone. Nor do we need to go backwards in technology in order to feel closer to our peers. Urinary incontinence affects millions of people in the United States. A 2007 study done in the U.S. reported a cost-of-illness of $66 billion dollars (Source).

There’s no need to feel shame. Because chances are your neighbor, or best friend, or family member could be worried by incontinence issues too. Wearever attempts to bring such discussion to the forefront of society by providing resources on our blog and encouraging an open dialogue.

Wearever incontinence briefs, incontinence panties, and incontinence bed pads provide sturdy protection that you can rely on.
