Is This the Answer to Your Leakage Problem?

Solve your light bladder leakage problem. 
Do you have a leakage problem? Leaking urine is not ever going to be pleasant, but it can be treated. Light bladder leakage is a condition characterized by the involuntary loss of urine. It can cause social anxiety, lead to isolation, discomfort, skin irritation, and more. 
Fewer leaks means:
  • Less discomfort
  • Less risk of dealing with problems like a damp mattress, or wet clothing.
  • Fewer nighttime disturbances.
  • Less laundry.
  • Less embarrassment and social withdrawal.
  • Less skin irritation.
  • Less odor.
In other words, dealing with your leakage problem is going to improve your quality of life, reduce expenses, and help you feel healthier, happier, and more confident in social situations.

This all sounds great, but what are the steps to get there? How can you solve your leakage problems? Unfortunately there is not a one size fits all answer to solving light bladder leakage. However, these steps can help:

Step one: Keep a voiding diary. This is a bathroom journal, where you document when you go, and more. This will help you better understand your condition, and give doctors a chance to better evaluate your symptoms. A voiding diary is very useful for both the sufferer and the physician as it can give insights into the condition, help with selecting the right management products, and more.

Our printable voiding diary can help you and your doctor get a clear picture of your incontinence, and also your needed absorbency.

Step two: Diagnosis and treatment. Take your voiding diary in and visit a doctor. Diagnosis is important because there are many types and causes of incontinence. There is stress incontinence, urge incontinence, overflow incontinence, functional incontinence, abnormalities that lead to incontinence, mixed incontinence, temporary incontinence, and bed-wetting. There are also different degrees or severity of each type. This means that seeking a diagnosis is key to getting the proper treatment plan.

After being diagnosed, the physician should help you determine a treatment plan. This may involve pelvic floor exercises, biofeedback, bladder training, catheterization, surgery, medication, or something else.

Step three: Manage your symptoms with the right products. The next step is to manage your symptoms. This is done by wearing absorbency products, cleaning the skin with special soaps, and using other supplemental products like bed pads and deodorizers to help you live with normalcy and dignity.

According to Kimberly-Clarks consumer research the average consumer wastes over $130 the first time they buy incontinence products. This is understandable as there are so many different products, brands, styles, and sizes, as well as absorbency. It can be very confusing, and once a package is opened, it can’t be returned, making mistakes costly. Avoid this by trying samples before buying cases. Samples can be purchased in sets of 4 for just $3.49. Visit our website or call 800-985-1353 M-F 9-4 CST to talk to a product specialist.
