Other Diseases and Conditions


There are many other conditions that can affect urinary and bowel incontinence. Some create a physical barrier in getting to the toilet in a timely manner while others create a neurological disconnect between the need to void and the ability to act.

Some of these include:

  • Multiple sclerosis
  • Parkinson’s disease
  • Cerebral palsy
  • Stroke
  • Spinal cord injury
  • Traumatic brain injury
  • Pelvic trauma
  • Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS)
  • Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD)
  • Dementia
  • Physical disabilities
  • Some psychological conditions

Any concerns, should of course, be discussed with a medical practitioner.
