Other way around, you see - many accidents are caused by incontinence šŸ˜‹
I always wondered is incontinence genetic or only caused by accidents? My grandparents had incontinence and so I was wondering if Iā€™ll end up becoming as well? My bladder is very sensitive and I usually have to pee a lot. More often than when I was a kid. Does that mean something? Any of you have advice?
Iā€™m sure there are many different causes, mine was an auto accident and spinal cord damage

My Grandmother and my Mother were both incontinent in old age and I am incontinent now Diabetes has been the cause for al of us.

I think there are hereditary factors at play. My mom, Aunt and Uncle all have OAB at the very least. All from the same set of parents. Each of us have completely different diets and lifestyles.

My OAB, Iā€™ve had my whole life but my dad told me about my uncle who used to work as a driving instructor and used to have to use empty water bottles since he always had to go. I guess itā€™s genetic.

Brings to mind the old joke, ā€œIncontinence is hereditary... it runs in your jeansā€

(Only if you donā€™t wear a good nappy, of course...)
