The Bladder and its Function Bladder

Your Diagnosis and the Bladder

Bladder problems, including both leakage and inability to empty the bladder can have many causes, and are not as uncommon as you may think. They can for example be caused by neurological diseases, spinal cord injury or simply as a part of getting older.

In this section, we look at different conditions and their potential effects on the bladder. The goal is to help you better understand why bladder dysfunction may be, or become part of, your particular condition, as well as provide information on how catheterisation can help you manage your bladder disorder safely, comfortably and with a minimum of fuss.
