As new Alzheimer’s biomarker results are reported at the Alzheimer’s Association International Conference 2014, let’s explore the relationship between Alzheimer’s and incontinence and ways to help a loved one manage the disease.
|Face the world confidently, despite LBL.|
Over 13 million individuals suffer from involuntary urine loss, or leaks, referred to as urinary incontinence. Over half of these are women, and not all of them are seniors either. In fact, these days younger women, career women, and many under age 50 suffer from light bladder leakage.
|B-Sure helps those with ABL remain active.|
by Lynn Wilson, Founder of The CareGiver Partnership
The CareGiver Partnership is carrying a product designed to help men and women with light accidental bowel leakage (ABL) live with normalcy and dignity. B-Sure absorbent pads are designed to help those with ABL maintain active lifestyles.
|Women with LBL now have options,|
information and variety.
Did you know the average woman with incontinence waits six years from her first incontinent episode to seek the help of a doctor? Urinary incontinence, or the involuntary loss of urine, even in small quantities is a common problem, but in the past it was often a problem women did not want to talk about.
With over 13 million sufferers in the US alone, the time to suffer in silence is over. These days, the problem remains the same, but things are changing.
|Constipation is sometimes the cause of ABL.|
ABL, or Accidental Bowel Leakage can happen to anyone, and does happen to many. And sometimes constipation is the cause.
My neighbor’s little boy was constipated, and because it hurt to go, he held it in. For a week. This caused all kinds of problems, including leaks. And now he has to follow a very specific regime for eating, eliminating, and more. It is a huge hassle, hard on him socially, and has resulted in a lot of expense and frustration for his poor mother. He is now on a year-long treatment plan to correct the damage and curtail the ABL.
