Women With Urinary Incontinence More Likely To Develop Depression

Women who suffer from urinary incontinence are more likely to be depressed, says a study.Urinary incontinence is the inability to hold your urine until you get to a restroom. The condition is twice as common in women as in men, is often temporary, and can happen for various medical reasons.

The mix of depression and urinary incontinence is worse than either condition alone and doctors 'need to be attentive to these findings', wrote University of Toronto researchers in Psychosomatics, reported health portal WebMD.

'It is imperative that women with either condition be screened for the other, no matter what their age group might be,' the researchers said.

Between 10 percent and 50 percent of all women experience urinary incontinence at some point in their lives, it said.

Depression is also common, affecting more than nine percent of US adults in any given year, according to the National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH).
