Over 25 million Americans suffer from some type of incontinence, making it one of the most widespread conditions in this country. It can profoundly affect people's social, family and work lives. And yet, studies have shown that most people wait years before even bringing the subject up with a doctor. Embarrassment, shame, and thinking that incontinence is just a part of aging are all reasons this condition is left untreated in so many. But we are here to tell you that incontinence, while it may be common, is definitely not normal. Nor is it anything that you should be ashamed of. It is a health condition that can and should be treated.
