Keeping a Bladder Diary for OAB
Overactive bladder (OAB) is group of urinary symptoms that affect millions of people. Nearly 30% of men and 40% of women in the U.S. experience OAB at some point in their lives. Typical OAB symptoms include a sudden, strong urge to urinate, urine leakage as well as frequent urination during the day and night. OAB can usually be managed through lifestyle changes or with medication and surgery in severe cases. Many people learn to control their OAB by monitoring their bladder behavior and making modifications to their daily habits. Keeping a bladder diary is a great first step in managing an overactive bladder.
