Boston, MA -- (SBWIRE) -- 07/08/2014 -- Incontinence is a widespread problem in Saudi Arabia. A study of 6,600 women aged 20 years and over was published by Alfaisal University's College of Medicine in 2012, with this finding that 29% of respondents suffered from urinary incontinence. Risk factors included older age and large baby birth weight, but were also linked to the common health problems of obesity and diabetes. There is thus a large potential consumer base for incontinence in the country. However, most of those suffering from incontinence in the Alfaisal University study did not seek medical care, with only 9% of respondents seeking medical advice. Most women suffer in silence, whilst many also use pantyliners or towels in lieu of incontinence products. This is mainly due to taboos surrounding incontinence, with many sufferers being reluctant to discuss these issues even with a doctor. In addition, the high price of incontinence products encourages many to opt for sanitary protection products instead.
