Caring for someone with OAB
Overactive bladder (OAB) is more common than many people think. An estimated 46 million—about 1 in 3—US adults aged 40 and older reported OAB symptoms at least sometimes in the past 4 weeks. So someone close to you may have OAB symptoms.
The good news is that there are ways you can help. Here are some things you can do:
- Encourage the person you care about to speak with a doctor to find out if they have OAB or something else
- Let them know that OAB is treatable. They don’t have to just accept its impact on their lives. You could also check out the Talk to Your Doctor page for tips to help them make the most out of a doctor visit
- Talk to them about medicine and small lifestyle choices. Both may help in different ways to manage OAB symptoms. Remember, no one should have to just put up with OAB. A doctor can help decide what treatment may work the best
