Q.

Incontinence

I did the test on this website and it said I'm at high risk for incontinence, what would be my next step? I'm 35 male overweight and I use adult diapers during the night and when I change myself I notice brown stains in the diapers should I be worried? And should I wear the adult diapers during the day? And how accurate is the test ?

Dear Robert

The brown stains might not be faecal incontinence, if you're overweight, it might just be external soiling.
I would suggest seeing a pelvic floor physiotherapist, and a urologist for your urinary incontinence.
Kind regards
