    Badly by the health professionals that I consulted.
    But, two factors that I think have greatly assisted in controlling my urinary incontinence- getting through peri-menopause and eliminating some foods from my diet, tomatoes, apples, grapes, chillies and spicey foods, citrus, chocolate and plums. I've kept coffee and strawberries in moderation. Other foods worth considering removing from the diet would be cantaloupes, carbonated drinks,chocolate, cranberries, Vitamin B complex, mayonnaise, Nutrasweet, Peaches, Pineapples,tea, vinegar.
    Not saying that this will work for you but possibly worth trying before heading for the Incontinence Physiotherapist or Uro-gynocologist for scans, flow tests and catheters. I was taking one 15mg tablet/day and still struggled to stay dry. Since the end of September 2012 I've used just 20. Not one of several health professionals I consulted mentioned peri-menopause or diet as contributing to urinary incontinence. Wish I'd known this before I wasted so much time, money and dignity.
