Whenever somebody is experiencing trouble in controlling their continence functions, it is called incontinence. There are two main types of incontinence, which are bladder incontinence and fecal incontinence.
There are over 19 million North American adults with urinary incontinence, 80% of them are females while the rest are males. Depending on the severity of each case, people with incontinence might suffer partially or completely unable to control their bladder. As with most illnesses, we can of course treat, cure, or – at the very least – manage incontinence. Often incontinence is very easily treatable.
Due to the sensitivity of this subject, it is highly recommended for anyone with a incontinence problem to see a doctor for professional evaluation and consultation. In many situations, using adult pull up diapers will greatly help with incontinence issues.
Pull up diaper products are being sold with incontinence in mind: light incontinence, moderate incontinence and heavy incontinence. For those who had lost complete control of their bladder, it is highly recommended to buy and use the moderate to heavy incontinence adult pullups.
Adult diaper items today are offered with either bonus wipes, bonus ointment, or both. As users of incontinence products might not be agble to change the diaper for hours, using the moisture ointment barrier bonus would protect their skin from disorders like itching or irritation.
Adult pull ups also come in many different sizes, from S to XXL. Adult Pull Up Diaper sometimes referred to as “Adult Protective Underwear” or “Incontinence Pads”, and are available for men only, for women only, or for unisex.
Not all adult pull ups are equal. Some are designed to absorb heavy wetting, some are for general and daily use, and some others are to be used for night time. It is most likely that you may never need more than just one type of adult diaper specially when dealing with sufferers of heavy incontinence.
Using and wearing an adult pull up diaper is just like a normal everyday underwear. This is why many prefer this type. Most of the time they are adjustable, and you have to be sure that it fits properly. Otherwise, the diaper will leak (which is something that obviously we want to avoid). Most people prefer disposable type over washable. When done wearing the diaper – or if you need to replace it with a new one – simply tear the sides for easy removal and toss it in the trash. If you want, there are also reusable incontinence underwear. Although not very popular and a bit more pricey to buy, these reusable underwear can save money in the long run but at the cost of convenience.
Incontinence products are mainly used by those who are getting older, due mostly to their medical condition. But often it is something that otherwise healthy individuals might require related to certain types of work or access to toilets is not readily available or maybe pregnency causing added pressure to the bladder.
