What is Urinary Incontinence?
Urinary incontinence is a loss of bladder control. It is the uncontrollable leakage of urine. It means a person urinates even when they don’t want to. Control over the urinary sphincter (bladder) is either lost or weakened.
It is a common problem affecting many people. It is most commonly found in women as compared to men. On average females of age group, 30-60 are most likely to suffer from it. There are several reasons why urinary incontinence can occur in someone. Obesity and smoking are considered to be risk factors for urinary incontinence. This problem can be treated by a Kidney specialist.

In some conditions, the severity is so high that you don’t get time to reach a toilet in time. Urinary incontinence is not a disease, it’s a symptom given by your bladder.
