Dehydration is caused by the insufficient intake of fluids or if the body loses more fluids than it assumes. Increased diuresis can cause the body to lose large quantities of fluids. We can, therefore, safely say that urinary incontinence may lead to dehydration, both though increased diuresis and due to the way we change our behaviour to deal with incontinence (limiting fluids).

The menopause and the incontinence symptoms you may be dealing with cause the epidermis to lose large quantities of lipids and become very dry. Don’t forget then to tackle the issue both from the outside, by using special creams, and from the inside, by consuming the right quantities of fluids.
