A high-fibre diet helps prevent incontinence.

It is important to eat the right food to keep your bowels healthy and regular. Dietary fibre is not digested, so it adds bulk to the stools, which is important to keep things moving and avoid constipation.

A poor diet can cause chronic constipation, which can eventually result in faecal incontinence.

Visit our Incontinence Centre for more on managing this condition.
