Adults
25 million adult Americans experience transient or chronic UI

Urinary Incontinence (UI) is a stigmatized, underreported, under-diagnosed, under-treated condition that is erroneously thought to be a normal part of aging. One-third of men and women ages 30-70 believe that incontinence is a part of aging to accept.

One-third of men and women ages 30-70 have experienced loss of bladder control at some point in their adult lives and may be still living with the symptoms.
More than half of all residents in nursing homes are incontinent and it is the second leading cause of institutionalization.
The elderly’s need for frequent toileting and/or the urgency to void increases the risk of falls by as much as 26% and bone fracture by as much as 34%.8

Stress urinary incontinence, the most prevalent form of incontinence among women, affects an estimated 15 million adult women in the U.S.
29% of individuals ages 60-70 experience leakage when coughing, sneezing, or laughing compared to 17% of men and women ages 30-39. A portion of these individuals also experience urge incontinence.2

One-fourth of women older than 17 reportedly experienced stress incontinence during the immediately preceding 30 days from being questioned. 24% of women ages 25-44 experienced symptoms compared to 33% of women ages 45-64.

About 17% of women and 16% men over 18 years old have overactive bladder (OAB) and an estimated 12.2 million adults have urge incontinence.

One in five adults over age 40 are affected by OAB or recurrent symptoms of urgency and frequency, a portion of whom don’t reach the toilet before losing urine.

Over Active Bladder (OAB) and UI occur about twice as frequently in women as in men and become more prevalent with advanced aging.

Women with OAB are significantly more likely to suffer from other health disorders, such as hypertension, obesity and arthritis, than women without OAB. Also, OAB sufferers are two to three times more likely to regularly experience disturbed sleep, overeating, and poor self-esteem, compared with non-OAB sufferers.
An estimated 17 million community-dwelling adults in the United States have daily UI and a further 33 million suffer from the overlapping condition, OAB.

Urinary incontinence in men

Aged Adults
Men tend to experience incontinence less often than women, and the structure of the male urinary tract accounts for this difference. It is common with prostate cancer treatments. Both women and men can become incontinent from neurologic injury, congenital defects, strokes, multiple sclerosis, and physical problems associated with aging.

While urinary incontinence affects older men more often than younger men, the onset of incontinence can happen at any age. Over Active Bladder (OAB)

One in five adults over age 40 are affected by OAB or recurrent symptoms of urgency and frequency, a portion of whom don’t reach the toilet before losing urine.

Overactive Bladder

Overactive bladder is typically caused by spasms of the muscles of the bladder, resulting in an urge to urinate (hence, urge incontinence). Overactive bladder is primarily a problem of the nerves and muscles of the bladder.
