Action point


Not keeping well hydrated is often a problem in people suffering from incontinence.

Poor hydration can increase the risk for developing bladder irritation and infections.

"Waterin" and "My bladder diary" are apps that will remind you to drink water at regular intervals. You can also set your own water goals for the day.

Visit our Incontinence Centre for more on managing this condition.
