This may be surprising, but this is a myth. Your chance of developing incontinence does increase with age, but it should not be accepted as a normal part of aging because incontinence often occurs as a symptom of another condition. For example, Parkinson’s disease, frequent urinary tract infections (UTIs), multiple sclerosis (MS), and more can contribute to increasing pressure on the bladder and bowels, leading to incontinence.
Due to the range of conditions that can cause incontinence, it is important to speak with your healthcare provider as soon as symptoms of incontinence begin to rule out underlying health conditions. With proper treatment and healthy lifestyle changes, you can greatly reduce symptoms and discomfort.
