I am female, age 60, and have had a little problem with stress incontinence – ‘leaking’ when exerting, sneezing, etc. Thru eliminating dairy for other reasons, I slowly became aware that certain dairy components — often ‘hidden’ in unlabelled foods — were the culprit. READ LABELS and eliminate anything containing: ‘milk solids,’ ‘modified milk ingredients,’ and ‘whey.’ I do mean ELIMINATE – not a single bite. Very important: Only buy baked goods that are labelled. Virtually all unlabelled bakery goods must contain one of these as they bring on the problem.
Even if you don’t believe me – try it for a week. Whenever the problem reoccurs, think back: what did I eat in the last 12-24 hours. Even a bite is enough.
Another note: this is not easy. Processed foods of all kinds – even sliced ham!! – almost always contain these ingredients. BUT IT WORKS. For more than 10 years, I’ve been leak-free — except when I cheat — it’s true, sometimes there is something too good to pass up. LOL
