Urinary Bladder Weakness

Urinary bladder weakness leads to urinary incontinence, frequent urge to urinate even at night during sleep, urinary leakage, and increased urinary frequency. Causes of the weak bladder include obesity, bladder irritants like caffeine, spicy foods, diuretics, alcohol, nerve damage, and urinary tract infection. Bladder weakness can adversely affect the mental well-being of an individual. Avoiding bladder irritant foods, preventing constipation by taking food rich in fiber, and reducing excess weight are necessary. Behavioral techniques to control the urge and bladder retraining program may help train the bladder.
