Fibre and incontinence

Fibre plays an important role in your digestive health. It can help make you feel fuller for longer. It can also improve your cholesterol levels and blood glucose levels.

In this module, you will learn about why we need to have enough fibre in our diet. You will also learn how to know the signs of a healthy bladder and bowel.

You can also download the Fibre and incontinence fact sheet.

For the best experience, we recommend you view the online module on a computer or laptop. Some content may be displayed differently on mobile devices or tablets.
