urinary incontinence in diabetes mellitusStudy on the influence of diabetes mellitus on the development of further urinary incontinence is carried out for several years. In Norway were interviewed more than 21 thousand people older than 20 years - in a survey of diabetes sick only 685 people, of whom 39% suffered from urinary incontinence, among other respondents, do not suffering from diabetes -was diagnosed in 26%.

urinary Incontinence is divided into several types - stress, mandatory, mixed (combines the first two species) and due to overflow of the bladder. Norwegian researchers found that patients with diabetes incontinence has urgent character and relates to a mix. Then these same patients were divided into groups, distinguished by categories: body mass index, age, Smoking. Because of this separation was revealed the reciprocal relationship between presence of diabetes and types of urinary incontinence: the diabetes (diabetes) and urgent NM (urinary incontinence) - 95% CI: 2.16 - 1.03, OR: 1.49; SD and mixed NM - 95% CI: 1.67 - 1.05, OR: 1.32; diabetes and severe NM - 95% CI: 1.96 - 1.21, OR: 1.54. This implies that the disease significantly affects the development of urinary incontinence is difficult severe incontinence and urgent.

In children it is one of the symptoms of diabetes when the child is six urinary in a day (norm) and makes from ten to twenty. While frequent urination is not performed only in the daytime, but at night, in many cases, children develop enuresis.

But not only one diabetes - a risk factor for the later development of incontinence, excess weight also affects its appearance. One way to prevent this complication with diabetes is to lose weight, but to heal, thus, existing incontinence will not work, only to prevent its development in the future. Losing weight drastically is not necessary, just a small weight loss - it should according to studies conducted in California Polytechnic state University among over two thousand women of advanced and middle age, divided into groups. In the first group of participants reduced calorie intake and perform certain exercises for three hours a week out of an average of six pounds each, and in the percentage number of subjects who did not have found incontinence, increased by 3% with the loss of about 800 grams weight, and in total, only 10.5% of participants from this group were found the signs of this complication, and in the second group participants didn't do anything and 14% of them identified the symptoms. In the end, the study showed that the reduction of risk of development of urinary incontinence due to a drop in blood sugar is due to the reduction of calories and exercise.
