Absolutely there are.
As with any incontinence, it is first important to note that incontinence is not a condition, it is a symptom of something else. If you have repeated episodes you should discuss it with your doctor. The second thing to note is this: incontinence is treatable, so get a proper diagnosis.
As with any treatment options, it is always preferred to make lifestyle changes or some forms of physical therapy to improve the condition before resorting to the more risky treatments, such as drugs and their side effects, or surgery. And with incontinence, there are definitely changes you can make to your diet to improve continence.
Here are some tips:
1) Decrease intake of coffee, alcohol, and diuretic juices like Cranberry juice.
2) Dropping weight can increase your continence as well, so if you’re heavy find a good diet that works for you. Bulk will put extra pressure on your bladder, not to mention the numerous other benefits to living a healthy lifestyle.
3) Drink plenty of water – it will keep you clean and flush the bacteria that can cause urinary tract infections (and thus increasing the feeling of the need to urinate.)
4) While not related to food and diet, doing kegel exercises are useful for both men and women, but especially for women, to firm the pelvic wall muscles that can cause incontinence when they become too weak.
