    Incontinence is sometimes called a silent epidemic because people struggling with the condition often do not talk about it to others or their physicians. Researchers estimate that 13 million or more people in the United States alone are affected by incontinence.
    • One out of 10 people age 65 or older are estimated to experience bladder control problems.
    • A significant percentage of elderly people living in their own homes have some type of incontinence.
    • Almost half of nursing home residents have incontinence.
    • More women than men are affected by incontinence.
    When untreated, people with incontinence may limit their activities outside of the home for fear of embarrassment. Subsequently, the condition can contribute to loneliness and depression caused by social isolation. When treated, symptoms of incontinence can be reduced or eliminated altogether:
    • Most people with stress incontinence either improve significantly or are cured.
    • Less than half of people with urge incontinence are cured.
