My doctor told me I should try to reduce my BMI [Body Mass Index] to help my LBL. Does weight really have an effect on bladder control?

Yes, definitely. Even a few pounds can make a big difference. Extra weight increases intra-abdominal pressure, and a 5% - 10% weight loss can significantly help reduce it.
