Keeping a Bladder Diary will provide you and your healthcare professionals with a good understanding of your bladder function and factors affecting it to be able to manage it better.
Keeping a Fluid Diary will provide you and your healthcare professionals with a good understanding of your bladder or kidney problem and how fluid intake influences your bladder/kidney health. It also will help to monitor changes with treatment. For example, making changes to your medications or frequency of bladder emptying may result in less urine leakage.
It is recommended that you complete the diary for a minimum of 7 days to identify any pattern or trend. If completing the bladder and bowel diary, you only need to collect information on fluid intake once.
You can download editable pdf version of the diary or create a digital diary on your device using the SCI Health Toolkit app.
Please note: Diaries must be downloaded to be completed – they cannot be filled in online
