Research has shown that stress urinary incontinence (SUI) (ie, involuntary leakage on effort or exertion or on sneezing or coughing) affects approximately 4% to 35% of women, causing significant morbidity and a decline in quality of life. It has been found that obesity is a major risk factor for incontinence including SUI and urge urinary incontinence.
