I have been dribbling on a night for some time now. I have had type 2 diabetes for 16 years and in the last 6 months or so i have started with ‘incontinence’ its only really through the night and only usually light (depending on how much i’ve drank before bed) doesn’t wake me up but im wet when i do wake up. Can my diabetes be causing this? just wondering if its some sort of ‘side affect’?
What kind of pad are you in currently? It may be that your pad is not absorbent enough and you can try another pad.
Alternatively, you could try a pull up pant or all in one. These are often designed to absorb more liquid than pads. As you leaks aren’t extremely heavy, you may be more comfortable in a pull-up pant. These are stretchy and are designed to be worn as a replacement to your normal underwear. Many of these feel just like ordinary underwear. All in ones, on the other hand, are more of a nappy style product. They are slightly bulkier than pull up pants.
Which of these would you be comfortable trying?
Yes, you can purchase bed mats and sheets to go over the bed. Is it just your bed sheet and mattress that are affected by leakages?
