|Depend Underwear can provide a big dose of dignity|
Using Depend underwear for men can provide you with security and protection and a big dose of dignity. Most men experience incontinence after prostate surgery, however there are many others that suffer on a daily basis. Currently, 13% of men over the age of 60 have reported at least one incidence of urinary incontinence. This problem is embarrassing for both genders, but men tend to be more reserved about seeking medical help. After all, women are used to wearing pads since their teen years. This is not true for men. Using incontinence products can help to manage your condition and can give you the protection you need.
How to Choose an Incontinence Product
Sample packages are available for many different types of incontinence. You can easily get a sample packet of different supplies that will suit your particular problem. Consider using incontinence pads, adult diapers, and an external catheter. These supplies all work in a different way and each can give you relief from the burden of incontinence.

To select the right product, track how frequently you deal with incontinence problems by using a voiding diary. You can ask for a complimentary one by calling The CareGiver Parntership. If you are frequently dealing with incontinence, you may need to seek out medical assistance. Incontinence can be related to underlying medical conditions that need to be addressed. Consider what your current health state is as excess weight can also lead to incontinence. Keep a journal of accomplishments you make and reward yourself for a job well-done. Feeling self-assured is a process that involves your person both inside and out. This is a great mental step to take as you are focused on re-gaining control over your bladder. Having the right attitude will help you to look at the situation differently and can really push you to do something about your problem.
It is important to focus on your health as improper eating will cause bowel problems. Do you have a high intake of spicy or sugary foods? Soda is known for stimulating the bladder, causing you to urinate more frequently. Due to this concern, look at your diet and start making serious changes. Your physician can recommend some lifestyle choices to improve your problems related to urine loss.
Obesity is becoming a real health problem in America. If you have some extra weight, now is the time to start losing it. Excess weight will press down on the bladder, forcing urine to release from the bladder. This means you can end up with an incontinence episode when you least expect it. By exercising daily, you are working to keep your weight under control. Not only will it help with your weight but it will strengthen the muscles. Stronger muscles can focus on doing their job to hold in the urine, preventing it from releasing.
Are you getting the proper amount of rest each night? Many studies have linked incontinence to stress and sleep disturbances. If you are not taking the time to properly rest your body, you will feel worn-down during the day. You will also find that it is not as easy to control your urinary episodes and you can have several accidents throughout the day.
Wearing Incontinence Products
Once you reach a certain age, you may notice that your body no longer responds the way it used to. Urinary incontinence is a part of the aging process for millions of Americans. Thankfully, you do not need to suffer from embarrassment as you can use a variety of incontinence products. The Depend products are designed to hold more liquid and provide odor eliminating protection from other brands on the market. The Real Fit style look and fits like real underwear - hence the name. Additionally, with the large variety of sizes and fits it is now easier than ever to find the perfect product for your needs. Depend Real Fit underwear for men are the closet thing to regular underwear that I have seen.
