Choosing the right incontinence product can feel overwhelming, but our experts are here to help!
“When someone develops incontinence, the inability to control their bladder or bowels, it can feel overwhelming because there are so many products on the market. They often drive to their nearest grocery or drugstore and just pick a random product. Since grocery or drug store employees are not trained on incontinence, it leaves many feeling embarrassed and confused about which product to choose. We often see customers who come to us frustrated that their product is leaking and sometimes they have even doubled up on products, believing that layering products is the best solution”, says Tammie Kister, an Incontinence Specialist at Medical West Healthcare Center.

Vegans are often deficient simply due to the lack of eating B-12 rich foods. However, some people eat foods that contain vitamin B-12, yet still find they are deficient. Some causes for this could be due to underlying conditions that prevent their body from absorbing B-12.
