It is a sad but common fact that often people with chronic diseases can experience incontinence and Diabetes is one condition that can cause or worsen incontinence problems.

The physical reason behind this is mainly due to nerve damage where the signals sent to the brain to control or empty the bladder and bowel are not working efficiently.

Obesity is a key risk factor for Type II Diabetes and it is important to manage early signs of incontinence before the symptoms and severity increase.

Here at Fico Centre, we arrange appointments for out-patient treatments of Secca Therapy. This is a minimally invasive procedure, offered as a day case with surgeons across the UK. Please call us to discuss in further detail 0844 561 6606.

The symptoms experienced depend on the position and amount of damage within the central nervous system.

Symptoms can include problems with:

MS is a lifelong condition that affects three times more women than men. Once diagnosed, MS will not go away and, for most people, the symptoms are variable from day to day and unpredictable. This can make living with MS very challenging.
