I was hoping on some advice I suffer with what I believe is incontinence I’m 80 and just manage this by changing my underwear regularly which isn’t ideal my age! I was thinking of just using some normal sanitary pads but I don’t know if this would be advised. I would appreciate some advice on products available for light incontinence.
Thank you in advance
Yes, caffeine and sugar are both common bladder irritants which can worsen incontinence. You can still consume these on occasions, however ensure you do not have them excessively. A good replacement for coffee is herbal tea, which has much less caffeine in. Citrus fruits and spicy foods can also worsen incontinence.
Have you heard of bladder retraining?
