How is Nocturia diagnosed

Your doctor will probably start by asking you some questions. You may then be given a fluids diary to fill in for a couple of days at home. This is to record how much you drink and how much you urinate. The fluids diary is a great help to doctors to establish the type of treatment they will prescribe. You can print out a fluids diary from this website.

 

Fill it in and take it with you when you go to see your doctor. When you have filled in the fluids diary and talked with your doctor, they will make a diagnosis.

Sometimes, further examinations are carried out. In other cases, a treatment is prescribed straightaway to see if it has a positive effect.
