ARAUJO, Maíta Poli de et al. The relationship between urinary incontinence and eating disorders in female long-distance runners. Rev. Assoc. Med. Bras. [online]. 2008, vol.54, n.2, pp.146-149. ISSN 0104-4230.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0104-42302008000200018.

BACKGROUND: To determine the prevalence of urinary incontinence in female long-distance runners and to compare it with the presence or not of eating disorders. Methods - A total of 37 women have completed the International Consultation on Incontinence Questionnaire-Short Form (ICIQ-SF) and the short version of the Eating Attitudes Test (EAT-26). A one-hour pad test was performed to determine urine loss. Mean values of continuous variables were compared using an independent sample t-test or the Mann-Whitney U test. RESULTS: 23 athletes (62.2%) reported urine loss. The mean of the ICIQ-SF was 4.03 ± 5.06. There was a significant relation between the 1-hour pad test (p=0.02) and eating disorders (p=0.03). CONCLUSIONS: There was urinary incontinence in female long-distance runners and a correlation with eating disorders. Coaches should improve their knowledge about this problem and establish cooperation with a multidisciplinary team.
