“When Bathroom Runs Rule the Day (and Night)”

This recent article from the New York Times addresses urinary incontinence in men and women.

As the article states (and as we’ve heard many times from urologists and neurologists), behavioral remedies are recommended.  These include:

* strengthening pelvic floor muscles through Kegel exercises.  It may take two months for these to be effective.

* avoid bladder irritants such as caffeine, alcohol and artificial sweeteners

* consume most fluids earlier in the day

* practice bladder voiding on a schedule rather than wait for an irrepressible urge
