#8. Cut out caffeine
Caffeine, a diuretic, can contribute to bladder irritation and stimulate muscle contractions, which can both cause incontinence. Caffeine is known to excite the brain, and since the control of the bladder is in the frontal lobe of our brains, it has an excitation effect on the bladder as well, along with a slight diuretic effect. It’s best to avoid or restrict its use when you have incontinence, especially the urge form.
