Neuropathy that comes from long term diabetes can be one of the causes of urinary incontinence. Childbirth as well as aging muscles can also be part of the problem that contributes to small leaks. Doing your Kegels will help a bit. Also, try to make regular trips to the bathroom because you may not always feel the nerve signal that your bladder is full. We tend to drink more fluid that normals and may not notice the need to visit the restroom. I also keep baby wipes in my bathroom for gentle cleaning and to prevent skin irritation.
Hope this helps.
