Next Monday the 29th May is World Digestive Health Day (WDHD which starts a worldwide public health campaign that focuses upon a particular digestive disorder in order to increase general public awareness of prevention, prevalence, diagnosis, management and treatment.

This year World Digestive Health Day Campaign is titled “Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD): Navigating Evolving Therapies in an Evolving Disease“.

Inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) is a group of idiopathic chronic inflammatory intestinal conditions. The two main disease categories are Crohn’s disease (CD) and ulcerative colitis (UC), which have both overlapping and distinct clinical and pathological features.

If you suffer from Irritable Bowel Syndrome or bowel incontinence we have a huge range of incontinence products available from:

Incontinence Disposable All in One Briefs are an ideal support for carers who need to ensure high degrees of absorbency and containment but need incontinence products that are easy to put on and take off with minimal disruption to the user, who of course may be quite immobile.

 

 

Disposable incontinence insert pads can be thrown away after usage, meaning that hygiene and convenience are great benefits. It is very easy to carry disposable incontinence products with you and change them as and when is needed.

 

 

Incontinence Disposable Pull-Up Pants offer a higher degree of security than incontinence pads. Although these incontinence pants appear more expensive than using incontinence pads you can reduce cost by buying in bulk through our special multi case offers plus users report that they are less prone to leaks.

 

 

Incontinence Products for Beds

To most people the horror of a crinkly hot plastic sheet on the bed is the necessary but unpleasant reality of incontinence conditions. However you may be surprised at the quality of new incontinence products that provide excellent protection, are breathable, soft and absorbent and come in a wide variety of types.

Please visit our Incontinence UK website for our full range of incontinence products.

If you are struggling with incontinence and have bladder weakness at night don’t worry as we have put together this useful guide to help you retrain your bladder and ensure you get a better night’s sleep.

  1. Some drinks can irritate your bladder – Avoid drinking things which irritate the lining of the bladder such as alcohol and caffeinated beverages like tea and coffee, especially the high caffeine, sugar and carbonated energy drinks. Water is best.
  2. Retrain your bladder and be the boss again - Holding off going to the toilet and increasing the time between bathroom trips can eventually strengthen the bladder and increase its capacity.
  3. Is stress getting to you? Find ways to relax and reducing the stress in your life will have benefits all round not just on your bladder.
  4. Be aware of infections – a urinary infection can also lead to bladder weakness at night and can cause pain or a burning sensation when urinating.  If symptoms continue then visit your doctor for medication.
  5. Late night drinking – It’s important to drink that’s true, but be aware of how much you drink in the last two hours before you go to bed.  Don’t cut down on your fluid intake, just distribute it more evenly throughout the day.

At Incontinence UK we realise that both men and women with bladder weakness may have different needs during the day than at night. Our night incontinence pads range is specifically designed to provide the right support to keep you dry all night.

Night Shaped (Soffisof Shaped) Incontinence Pads

These night shaped incontinence insert pads are for heavy to severe incontinence and are widely recommended by healthcare professionals, including the NHS. The anatomic shape ensures comfort and standing cuffs prevent leakage. Price £12.99

Lille Supreme Form Large Shaped Incontinence Pads (Unisex)

These Lille Supreme Form Large Shaped Incontinence Pads are for moderate to severe incontinence problems.   Durable, discreet with non-rustle polyethylene backing.  Price from £8.99

 

TENA Slip Ultima:  Unisex All in One Incontinence Briefs

TENA Slip Ultima offers the highest and maximum protection of the TENA Slip All in One Incontinence briefs – 10% more absorbent than TENA Slip Maxi. The slightly longer product core secures faster acquisition speed and enhanced urine retention, reducing the risk of leakages for those who require higher absorbencies – suitable for severe incontinence and night time use.   Price £18.99

We have many incontinence products available suitable for both day and night including a range of disposable and washable incontinence bed products so please visit our website to order online or call us on 0800 068 3625 for more information.

Here at Incontinence UK we understand that regular and involuntary peeing during pregnancy can be annoying, and occasionally embarrassing, but it’s normal and (mostly) temporary. If the liquid is clear and odourless, there’s a slim chance you might be leaking amniotic fluid and we recommend that you call your doctor or nurse immediately.

During pregnancy, many women experience at least some degree of urinary incontinence.  The incontinence may be mild and infrequent for some pregnant women. But it can be more severe for others. Age and body mass index are risk factors for pregnancy incontinence, according to one study.

WHAT TO DO ABOUT PROBLEMS WITH EXCESS PEEING DURING PREGNANCY:

  • Do your Kegels! Try to work up to three sets of 30 Kegel exercises a day.
  • Keep your weight gain moderate, since extra pounds put extra pressure on your bladder during pregnancy.
  • Train your bladder to behave. Urinate every 30 minutes — before you have the urge, in other words — and then try to extend the time between pees each day.
  • Try to avoid constipation during pregnancy, so that your full bowels don’t put added pressure on your bladder.
  • Keep drinking at least eight glasses of fluids every day. (Cutting back on water to control the peeing only makes you vulnerable to dehydration and urinary tract infections.)
  • Avoid coffee, citrus, tomatoes, soft drinks, and alcohol — all of which can irritate your bladder and make it harder to control those leaks.
  • Incontinence pads can help absorb leaking urine (no tampons, please — they don’t block the flow of urine and they’re off-limits during pregnancy anyway).
  • As a last line of defence, do Kegels or cross your legs when you feel the need to cough or sneeze, or when you’re about to laugh or lift something heavy.

If you are pregnant and are suffer from mild incontinence; then please do visit our Incontinence UK website for all products relating to incontinence. We stock a huge variety of products from well-known brands including small disposable insert incontinence pads that can fit into your own underwear or washable incontinence pants with a built in pad.
