Weight Loss Linked to Incontinence in Obese Women

January 28, 2009: 06:05 PM EST
A program to reduce incontinence through diet and exercise has provided “conclusive” evidence to support the commonly held belief that losing weight can help to reduce incontinence in obese women. The Program to Reduce Incontinence by Diet and Exercise (PRIDE), conducted in Birmingham, Alabama, and Providence, Rhode Island, shows that women can reduce weekly urinary incontinence episodes by nearly one-half (47 percent) if they’re on an intensive weight-loss program. Only 22 percent of women in an information-only group achieved the same level of reduction.
