Urinary Continence

Year: 2021
Neurogenic bladder is a common feature of Machado-Joseph Disease (MJD) and describes the condition when the nerve pathways that control bladder function are impaired. This can cause issues related to overactive bladder (OAB) like urinary incontinence (UI) and retention. This Help Sheet provides general information about urinary incontinence that may be encountered by people living with MJD. It is important to remember that each person with MJD needs to be assessed and supported according to individual need.
