Bladder

As a conservative estimate there are around 14 million people in the UK today with some form of bladder problem. This figure means there are more people suffering with bladder problems than with Asthma, Diabetes and Epilepsy put together.

There's no discrimination either, as both men and women, young and old can be affected.

Despite being so common, bladder difficulties are still not as openly talked about as they should be and many people needlessly suffer in silence and don't get the help they need.

The choice and availability of treatments, products and medicines has never been greater and there is plenty of good advice and support available. In some cases bladder problems can be completely cured and in others they can be effectively managed with the right products or treatments so you can regain your quality of life.

On the following pages you will find information on the many different kinds of bladder problems, from urinary incontinence and overactive bladder through to bladder weakness (stress urinary incontinence) and urinary retention, including more specific conditions like Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia (BPH) and the Menopause. Available treatment and product options are included for each individual condition.
