FONTENELE, Ticiana Mesquita de Oliveira; ABDON, Ana Paula de Vasconcelos; ARAUJO, Marina Campos  e  BEZERRA, Ilana Nogueira. Association between energy and nutrient intake and urinary incontinence among adult women. Cad. saúde colet. [online]. 2018, vol.26, n.1, pp.45-52. ISSN 1414-462X.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/1414-462x201800010145.

Objective

To evaluate the relationship between urinary incontinence and energy and nutrient intake among adult women.

Method

A cross-sectional study was carried out with 382 women (≥ 18 years old) attended in a Primary Health Care Service in Fortaleza-CE. The evaluation of IU was performed using the International Consultation on Incontinence Questionnaire - Short Form (ICIQ-SF) and food intake was estimated through a food frequency questionnaire (FFQ). Nutrient intake was adjusted for total energy consumption, using the residual method. Logistic regression models were used to test the association between the consumption of energy and nutrients, and IU.

Results

Greater cholesterol consumption was associated with UI (fourth quartile vs. first quartile: adjusted OR =2.26; IC 95%=1.19-4.29). No association was observed with the consumption of energy, macronutrients, lipid fractions, sodium and fiber, and UI, however there was a greater intake of protein and lower sodium intake among women with urinary incontinence (p <0.05).

Conclusion

This study found an association only between cholesterol intake and IU. Specific analysis of the types of food consumed should be developed to better assess the influence of dietary factors on UI.
