For a site that reviews adult diapers for managing incontinence and bedwetting I thought I should provide at least some information related to these medical conditions in all of their various forms.
I do however expect that most people who find themselves here are probably already familiar with their condition and are looking primarily for reviews on the different kinds of products available.
Adult diaper reviews is really what I specialize in and what this site is all about. However, I am also interested in finding ways to help you overcome your condition so that one day you may never need an incontinence product again.
To do that we need to explore the many different kinds of bladder and bowel issues there are. Once we come to a full understanding of what the underlying causes are then we can futher explore possible treatments to overcome this condition.
At least as full of an understanding as today's medical knowledge and diagnostic tools will allow to have.
Incontinence is the medical diagnosis of a person who, for whatever reasons, cannot control their bodily functions. Whether it be a loss of bladder control or a loss of bowel control to varying degrees of severity.
Like many conditions it shows no biases. It can effect people of any age. Even teens and youths!
There can be all sorts of causes for this but here is a brief overview of a few different forms that one might suffer from:
Treatments for these various situations can range depending on the condition, the cause, age and sex of the individual experiencing the problems.
The prevelance of different symptoms reported in the population varies depending on what factors your examining.
For example, How many children between the age of 6-12 wet the bed? Of those children how many have daytime accidents?
Where do they live? What ethnicity are they? What gender are they?
How often does it happen? Once a month? Once a week? Greater than once a week?
The list of questions goes on and on for both children and adults. The results will differ quite greatly depending on what quesitons are asked and factors determine inclusion.
Thankfully there's been enough studies and enough data collected that we can determine some rough estimates and generalizations.
For instance, generally incidents of daytime UI in children gradually decreases as children get older. Also, the difference between how many girls experience episodes over how many boys gets to be 5 to 10 times greater by the age of 16.
This difference in the experience of loss in either gender extends into adulthood and also touches upon types of incontinence.
Over half of all women with UI suffer from Stress Incontinence.
While there are many different possibilities for treatment there are also plenty of supplies available to help manage the problem until you can find a treatment that works for you.
Most adult diapers are good for both sexes. There are however a few specially designed male products and female products.
Some are made for looks that are more appealing to each sex while others are made to have absorption in all the right places.
Male pads would be a great example of that!
There are plenty of other accessories too like adult wipes, plastic pants, lotions and even boxers!
There are plenty of options available to help you avoid making a mess of your clothes, your pride, reputation and to help you clean up as well.
So grab a hold of your condition. Take control of the situation.
Don't let incontinence control you!
