Make some continence resolutions in the New Year

It’s time for New Year’s resolutions! While holidays, a new job or spending more time with your family may be at the top of your list for 2018, why not set some continence goals too?

As a nation we don’t talk about it enough, but bladder and/or bowel control problems affect more than 1.1 million New Zealanders over the age of 15, including 25 percent of younger women, 34 percent of older women and 22 percent of older men.

But there is plenty you can do to keep your bladder and bowel in good working order  - and it can be as simple as drinking plenty of water or sitting properly on the toilet.

We’ve come up with some continence resolutions and tips so you can make a healthy start to 2018.
