Choosing the right type of incontinence
product is very important
When a person first starts experiencing incontinence symptoms they should contact their health care professional. You should never assume that incontinence is something that you just have to live with or is a normal part of aging. Incontinence is more common as we age only because it is often related to medical conditions that become more common as we grow older. However, no matter what your age or health status the only way to have an accurate diagnosis and receive the appropriate treatment is to see your doctor when your incontinence symptoms first become apparent. Waiting out of shame or embarrassment only worsens the problem and makes the treatment longer, more difficult, and more costly.
