While UI and OAB are primarily associated with aging, other risk factors identified include elevated body mass index (BMI), neurologic diseases, recurrent urinary tract infections (UTIs), hypertension and diabetes, and elevated triglycerides. The specific mechanism which causes UI and OAB is unknown, but in patients with this condition, urodynamic control is not well regulated. The main muscle of the bladder, the detrusor muscle, will involuntary contract - regardless of the bladder volume - which leads to the urge to urinate.

When someone has OAB, affected or damaged nerve cells cause the bladder to contract uncontrollably, creating leakage, the strong sudden need to “go right away.”
