Best Protection Against Fecal Incontinence

Protecting yourself against fecal incontinence is a two-part process: management and treatment. Managing fecal incontinence requires the use of products such as adult diapers, cleansing wipes, under pads, and more. Treatments depend on the cause of the fecal incontinence in the first place, and should be discussed with your doctor. 
Protect yourself against fecal incontinence.

In order to properly manage fecal incontinence, look for products that offer a comfortable fit, that promote skin wellness, and have good absorbency and odor protection. No one wants to smell bad, or leak, so keep fit and function in mind.

Products for managing fecal incontinence come in a number of brands, each offering their unique technologies and features. The top brands include:
  1. Abena 
  2. Surecare 
  3. Tranquilty 
  4. Prevail

The second part of protecting against fecal incontinence is treatment. Treating the cause goes hand in hand with managing the symptoms. Many elderly think that fecal incontinence is just part of aging, and while it is true that there are more cases in the elderly, it is not an inevitable part of growing old.

Treatment often includes:

  1. Dietary changes- Changing the diet to make stool harder or softer depending on your specific problem can go a long way to improving fecal incontinence. 
  2. Exercise- Exercise promotes healthier bowels and should be part of a treatment plan. 
  3. Therapies- There are many therapies that can aid in treating fecal incontinence, many of which show promising results. These include: Biofeedback, Bowel training, Sacral nerve stimulation
  4. Surgeries- Sometimes the problem has to be treated surgically due to the severity of the damage that causes the incontinence. In this case, the patient may need to under go one of the following: Sphincteroplasty, Treat rectal prolapse, a rectocele, or homorrhoids, Sphincter repair, Colostomy
Don’t let fecal incontinence stand in the way of living your life. Seek treatment, and let The CareGiver Partnership help you find the right tools for managing it in the meantime.
