Bowel incontinence, also known as fecal incontinence, is when you are unable to control your bowel movements. It's a common issue among senior adults; it can span from an absolute loss of control to erratic stool discharges when passing gas. Although bowel incontinence is not usually a severe health issue, it has the ability to heavily interfere with your daily life. You do not have to endure this issue. Contact a Digestive Health Center near you as soon as possible to consult with a GI provider in Thibodaux, LA who will help develop a treatment plan that will enhance your quality of life.

There are a few signs that indicate that bowel incontinence is occurring. The most common signs of bowel incontinence are:

  • Leakage of stool or gas that can’t be managed
  • Discharging stool when you are not in the bathroom, for instance when you cough or have flatulence
  • The urgency to have a bowel movement
  • Lowered recognition of the need to have a bowel movement or pass gas

If you think you are experiencing bowel incontinence and need assistance managing it, request a consultation with a GI provider at your nearest Digestive Health Center location so that they can establish a treatment plan that will give you relief.

The best strategy to treat bowel incontinence is to find the root cause and determine a treatment plan. Treatment recommendations could differ and more than one method could be needed to regulate symptoms. Noninvasive treatments for this usually involve your diet. Some of the recommended diet changes include:

  • Avoid consuming caffeine, as this could help to stop diarrhea
  • Drinking multiple cups of water every day to inhibit constipation
  • Eating upwards of 20 to 30 grams of fiber every day (can make stool heavy and better to handle)

During your consultation with our Thibodaux, LA GI specialists, we can discuss alternative options for treatment.
