Summary

A bladder diary provides an objective evaluation of the severity of urinary storage symptoms and associated urinary incontinence. Bladder diaries are not used to diagnose detrusor overactivity or urodynamic stress incontinence; however, they help to guide conservative management and to provide lifestyle advice, and keeping a bladder diary is the only method available to diagnose nocturnal polyuria.
