How Many People in the U.S. Have Adult Incontinence? If you or a loved one is affected by adult incontinence, you should know that you are not alone. Approximately 25 million adult Americans, mostly seniors, have adult incontinence or a milder form, sometimes called bladder weakness or overactive bladder (OAB). Adult incontinence affects both men and women. While adult incontinence is most common in adults over 50 years, it can also affect younger people, especially women who have given birth. Although there has been a stigma attached to adult incontinence (especially when many adult incontinence products are called “adult diapers”), there’s no reason to be embarrassed of the condition. There are many causes of adult incontinence, including pregnancy, childbirth, weak bladder muscles, hysterectomy, complications from surgery, stroke, or chronic diseases like diabetes, Parkinson’s disease, multiple sclerosis (MS), and other diseases that affect the bladder nerves or spinal cord. If you suspect that you have OAB or adult incontinence, it’s important to talk to your doctor. If you hide the issue you could risk getting urinary tract infections, sores, skin infections, and rashes.
