Bladder Matters

Bladder Matters

Urinary incontinence, the loss of bladder control, is a common and often embarrassing problem. If you deal with incontinence or an overactive bladder, you know that your personal freedom and your day-to-day activities can be severely restricted because it can affect your work, leisure time, travel, and other aspects of your life.

In most cases, simple lifestyle changes or medical treatment can ease your discomfort or stop urinary incontinence.

Torrance Memorial's Miracle of Living June lecture will increase your knowledge about incontinence and provide information on how to gain more freedom in your life.

  • Is it a urinary tract infection (UTI) or an overactive bladder?
  • What tests are done to deter- mine which one it is?
