A Practical Guide to Bladder Control
You've heard the myths about urinary incontinence. It's time you learned the facts:
Myth: "This is just part of growing old. People have to live with it."
Fact: Incontinence is not caused by aging. It's a symptom of one of several medical disorders.
Myth: "The condition probably isn't treatable."
Fact: 80% to 90% of known cases respond to the treatments described in this book.
Myth: "You don't hear much about incontinence, so it must be pretty rare."
Fact: Just beacuse people don't like to talk about a problem doesn't mean it's rare. In fact, half of all adult women suffer from urinary incontinence at some point in their lives. It affects one in five men.
If you have a bladder problem that's taken control of your life, Staying Dry is the book that will put you back in charge.
