Urinary incontinence status and risk factors in women aged 50 –70 years: a cross-sectional study in Hunan, China

ConclusionsUI in women aged 50 –70 years in Hunan was not as prevalent as reported in previous studies. Some possible reasons are addressed; for example, the primary survey in this study was not a UI-focused survey. Women who were older, lived in the countryside and had histories of gynaecological disease, hypertension or card iovascular disease were more likely to have UI. Health departments and medical staff should target patients with factors that potential contribute to UI development.

This shuffling worries me because it seems to be a sign of worse to come. Am I over-reacting? Is th...
