What is Urinary Incontinence?

Assisted Living Ann Arbor


What is urinary incontinence? It’s the involuntary loss of urine, according to the National Association for Continence (NAFC). 

Types of incontinence include:

  1. Urge incontinence – Also known as an overactive bladder – an urgent need to urinate.
  2. Total incontinence – This can indicate that your sphincter muscle is weakened, resulting in uncontrollable leakage.
  3. Stress incontinence – Occurs when you have increased abdominal pressure that increases pressure from your bladder.
  4. Overflow incontinence – This happens when your bladder doesn’t completely empty when you go to the bathroom.
  5. Functional incontinence – This is caused by other disabilities such as neurological disorders or arthritis. 
  6. Mixed incontinence – This is a person who suffers from more than one type of incontinence, such as stress incontinence plus urge incontinence.
