Overactive Bladder Diagnosis

Bladder Diary

In the first part of the diagnosis, your doctor tends to ask several questions about the current conditions and signs. To give accurate answers, you need to keep records in a bladder diary and bring it to the appointment. This will provide the doctor with the necessary details and information on your condition. It is simple to create your own bladder diary with the following information:

– What did you drink? When and how much?

– Records on your urination: How long does each time take? How many times do you urinate during the day? The time between each visit.

– The severity of urine leakage or urgency [1]
