On American Diabetes Association Alert Day March 26, the Association is encouraging the public to take the diabetes risk test on Facebook and share the test with loved ones. Everyone should be aware of the risk factors for type 2 diabetes and social media can help spread awareness.
First, consider that incontinence can be triggered or worsened by various medications, especially diuretics, which cause urge incontinence. Urge incontinence happens when the weakness of the sphincter muscle closure combined with a behavioral trigger (such as locking your front door) which causes the bladder to squeeze and large amounts of urine to leak.

As the need for in-home caregiving grows to accommodate aging baby boomers, so, too, do opportunities to age in place safely, independently and affordably.
|Incontinence products are better than ever!|
These types of items no longer carry with them the stigma that adult diapers once had because they are designed to be absorbent and less bulky than ever before. They are designed to give the person self-confidence and dignity. No more looking like a toddler at any age beyond four is necessary when dealing with incontinence issues. Instead, reasonable looking underwear that protects the wearer from embarrassing wet spots is the order of the day.

|Incontinence Products for Women|
- Inability to control the bladder
- Inability to reach the toilet in time
- Lack of realization that she needs to use the restroom
The inability to control the bladder might come from weak bladder muscles or it might be the side effect of certain medications or surgeries.

Because they are not fully encasing the person’s nether regions, incontinence pads may be less secure than diapers. Diapers are designed to take a full load of urine and contain it. The pads that a person may use cannot contain as much as a diaper just based on the volume comparison of each. For that one limitation, people gain benefits from using a pad over a diaper that includes less bulk, greater freedom of movement and less of a possibility of notice by others.
|Incontinence Bed Pads|
Incontinence bed pads are designed for the time when the person is sleeping. They protect the mattress from stains and moisture, and they provide the sleeper with a measure of security in that they do not have to worry about soiling the mattress. The bed pads can be used not just with adults, but also with children who may have problems with controlling their bladders. No matter what the age of the person is, bed pads are appropriate if the person urinates in the bed. Incontinence bed pads are used in hospitals, but they should never be used to transfer patients from one area to another.
|Tena Adult Diapers|
|Adult Diapers offer freedom!|
Some people in wheelchairs may use diapers because they know that they will be unable to reach the toilet alone or in time. Regardless of the reason that a person is in a wheelchair, it is nice for him or her to be able to not have to have a colostomy bag and catheter. It is also nice to not have to worry about the embarrassment factor.
|Depends for women|
Pads are the most common type of incontinence product. These are not complete diapers or underwear, but a protective device that a woman can wear in her pants. A comfortable pad will fit neatly into a woman’s underwear and will be thin enough for her to wear most types of pants without someone noticing. Pads are more or less for women who may have a light incontinence problem. For heavier incontinence issues, there are diapers and protective underwear available.

Connecting with other caregivers can reduce stress and result in a healthier, more effective caregiver, and social media plays an important role in informing and connecting caregivers. Caregiver stress is common and can lead to serious health problems. However, actively seeking help, information, and support can reduce stress and loneliness.
