Do people who are heavier have more bladder leaks?
Being overweight can negatively impact bladder control. Excess pounds can place undue pressure on the bladder, leading to more leakage.
The good news: Maintaining a healthy weight can help you manage leakage. By choosing a healthy, well-balanced diet and avoiding a sedentary lifestyle, you can lessen your risk of leaks.
