Hello. I'm Dr. Christensen.
I'm sorry your wife is having problems. It's possible one of her medications (the Revelol) is contributing to her urinary problems. In many patients, Revelol causes tightening of the muscle around the urethra (the tube that drains urine from the bladder). This could allow your wife's bladder to overfill, which might lead to "overflow" or "urge" incontinence (involuntary leakage of urine) when her bladder reaches its maximum capacity.
However, I suspect your wife's situation is more complicated than that. It sounds like she has arthritis in her hips, which could delay her from going to the washroom when she first has the urge to urinate. Then, when she can't hold her urine any longer, she has to get to the washroom in a hurry -- and there are times when she might not get there in time. Doctors call this "functional" incontinence.
To make matters worse, many diabetics develop neuropathy (nerve damage) that interferes with their ability to sense when their bladders are full. In addition, diabetics -- especially women -- are more prone to urinary tract infections, which could contribute to urinary urgency.
Your wife's problems probably wouldn't improve much if she changed her medications, as they're probably not the main cause of her hip pain or her urinary urgency. She needs to see her doctor, who will probably want to analyze her urine and examine her hips to see if she has a bladder infection or hip arthritis. Additional treatment may be necessary.
I hope that helps. Good luck!
