Delaying onset of diabetes could have important public health implications
[Type 2 diabetes] independently increases risk of urinary incontinence in women,” report researchers. “Because risk of incontinence appeared associated with longer duration of [type 2 diabetes], even delaying the onset of diabetes could have important public health implications.”
In 1996, 81,845 women reported information on urinary function for the Nurses’ Health Study. Self-reported urinary incontinence, defined as leakage at least weekly, was ascertained in 1996 and 2000.
“The risk of prevalent incontinence and incident incontinence was significantly greater in women with diabetes than women without,” write the researchers. “In addition, risk of incontinence increased with duration of [type 2 diabetes].”
