Lots of neurological conditions cause problems with going to the toilet. It can help if you have your 5 Fruit and Vegetables A Day, make sure you drink enough water, and try and get some moderate exercise. Sometimes complementary therapies might help as well. You might be able to get help from social services with personal care. And of course it's always important to wash your hands properly.

You can get access to disbled toilets in shopping centres and pubs by using a Radar key from Disability Rights UK.
