Diabetes incontinence products and lifestyle

Posted Dec. 25, 2012, at 4:47 a.m.

Incontinence ProductsA diabetic tends to suffer from frequent urination and depending on the age of the diabetic, may not always be able to exert control over it resulting in involuntary wetting of clothes. Diabetes incontinence therefore is an invaluable aid to diabetics. Wearing an incontinence pad or incontinence briefs, a diabetic could go about his or her day to day activities with confidence and without fear that their disease will cause an embarrassment.

Types of diabetes incontinence products

Apart from diabetic incontinence that can be worn like an undergarment, drug stores and most shopping malls also stock incontinence products that help protect mattresses and bed sheets.

Supports your current lifestyle

The easy availability of child and adult diabetic incontinence means that people suffering from loss of bladder control due to diabetes or any other disease or accident, need not retire or alter their lifestyle.

The modern diabetes incontinence product

Typical diabetes incontinence is made from more than one material. The inner part is usually padded with anti-reactive, skin-friendly, soft anti-bacterial and highly absorbent material. Again, the type of material used is also dependent on type of incontinence use – urinary or fecal.

A popular misconception is that fecal incontinence pads absorb fecal matter; in reality, it only absorbs the fluid and holds the fecal matter within a separate bag like structure. The special material that is used within the incontinence pad ensures zero spill or stains especially at the edge of the incontinence product. Most commercially available diabetes incontinence products are water and moisture resistant.

Buying diabetes incontinence products

When you buy diabetes incontinence products, look out for the ‘ISO capacity’ label. The ‘ISO capacity’ label indicates the maximum quantity of liquid it can hold. Select a product that caters to your specific needs. Also, diabetes incontinence products such as incontinence panties and briefs are also available in non-rustle material, i.e. they do not rustle when the user walks, are thin so its outline is not visible through the clothes. People suffering from lack of control over body fluids need not any longer alter their lifestyle or working hours – they do not have to opt to work at nights. More importantly, modern day diabetes incontinence products effectively hold fluid and fecal matter without causing stains or releasing odor.

In tune with your fashion statement

Love wearing figure-hugging jeans or the latest fashion apparels and accessories? The technology adopted by the manufacturers of diabetes incontinence products closely mimics the technology adopted by fashion garment manufacturers. Modern day diabetes incontinence pads are molded according to the contours and shape of human body. This not only helps prevent leakage, it makes the product more comfy and wearable along with your fashion garments. Truly, modern diabetes incontinence products have come a long way and the embarrassment associated with it is a thing of the past.

If you are suffering from diabetes and resultant loss of control over body fluids, life without the diabetes incontinence products would have been humiliating and almost impossible.

Where to buy

Diabetes incontinence products for men and women are available at most drug stores and shopping malls. However, the best place to buy them is online; you can shop in the privacy of your home, compare products and select the one that best suits your needs. Incontinence products are always carefully and discreetly packed.
