Children and adults sometimes “escape” urine (also because of laughing)
Most adults have had the unpleasant experience that their urine “escapes” uncontrollably even though they do not have incontinence (especially when laughing intensely). However, in a more severe form, it is a symptom that affects all age groups of people and both sexes. It is accompanied by a feeling of shame and the need for isolation.
Urinary incontinence is a condition in which the involuntary release of urine becomes a social or hygiene problem that can be objectively proven. This is not talked about openly, and it is easier for people to talk about heart failure, cancer or, for example, diabetes. Involuntary leakage of urine is a topic that is kept silent during visits to doctors. The causes of this problem are as numerous as the categories of population that are affected by this problem.
About 8% of the population suffers from an occasional or constant need to urinate involuntarily (according to estimates). Age groups that are more often affected by this problem are women who have given birth several times and the elderly population. One of the risk factors for this problem is extra pounds located in the abdominal area. Medical experts and doctors made comparisons of younger age groups according to gender and differences were found. Figures show that the ratio of incontinent women of fertile age is 10%-15% compared to men of the same age of only 5%. This difference is lost for people over 70 years of age.
Many children “wet” the bed even at an older age, are afraid of various humiliations from their peers, and generally avoid social activities that include spending the night. Their psychological problems are due to bedwetting at night. Elderly people often feel helpless because others worry about their own hygiene. Elderly people feel uncomfortable and withdraw into inner peace and therefore do not get all the help they need. A problem in the health budget of most countries of the world and a big item is the financing of aids that help to urinate more easily. The insole is a basic part of daily clothing for most nursing home users. Aids are often prescribed without a preliminary examination, and the possibility of treating this discomfort is not considered.
Uncontrolled urination even in old age can be avoided if the cause is treated properly and in time
In the countries of Western Europe, we encounter the following causes of uncontrolled urination: loss of mobility (mobility) due to aging or an accident, memory loss due to brain atrophy, uncontrolled spasms of the urinary bladder due to the degenerative process of the musculature of the urinary bladder, chronic infections or cancer of the urinary canal, disorders of the urinary canal and in women, overall disorder of the sphincter muscles due to loss of muscle tone of the pelvic floor musculature.
Many causes can be prevented and the consequences can be cured
The prerequisite for this is that the causes and therapeutic options for bladder disorders in old age are known to smaller groups of doctors, medical staff and caregivers, but also to everyone involved in the treatment, care, care and supply of people with this health problem.
The fastest step towards healing is early recognition of the cause

  1. Eat frequent but small meals.
  2. The recommendation is 8 to 10 glasses of water a day.
  3. Chew your food well because the salivary glands secrete substances that add an alkaline quality to every bite.
  4. Add leafy green vegetables to every meal (bitter tasting if possible)
  5. Limit the intake of saturated fats (mayonnaise, margarine), sugar (cakes, fruit juices), meat (red meat) and caffeine, as they stimulate the secretion of insulin by releasing sugar and encourage the multiplication of candida and bacteria in the urethra.
  6. It is necessary to have a balance of acidic and basic nutrition for a healthy diet. Stress, lack of water, acidity of the body, intake of foods with a high GI content are the main causes of diabetes, urinary tract infection, prostate disease and the occurrence of other chronic diseases, which result in uncontrolled urination.
  7. You should maintain an ideal body weight and reduce extra pounds. Losing extra pounds is the only possible way to reduce the intake of bread, pasta, sweets (by half of the previous intake) and to increase the intake of raw vegetables to 4 cups and fruit by at least 2 portions (which increases the feeling of satiety, facilitates regular digestion, provides antioxidants, vitamins , minerals). Physical activity is also important.
  8. It’s never too late to start pelvic floor muscle exercises. A relaxing position (lying on your back with your legs slightly raised or legs on a pillow) and feet flat on the ground is important for the exercises. Hands are placed on the lower abdomen to control the muscles involved in these exercises.
  9. Tense the muscles for 2 seconds and release for 2 seconds. Repeat the exercise 10 to 15 times. You start with the endurance exercise of the pelvic floor muscles when you have found the right group of muscles and you are already exercising regularly.
  10. Pelvic floor muscles get tired very easily. Therefore, it is important to take a short break when exercising pelvic floor muscle endurance. Endurance exercises movements consist of 5 seconds of tense and 5 seconds of relaxed muscles. Do as many repetitions as you can handle. Further endurance exercise consists of one long muscle tension exercise lasting 30 seconds to 2 minutes. A few people can extend this period of exercise.
