- your doctor will ask you many questions about your child’s wetting and urine habits as well as their general health, growth and development. It is also important to let your doctor know if there is any family history of kidney conditions or other illnesses such as high blood pressure (hypertension) or diabetes.
- Sometimes, you may not remember accurately how often your child empties their bladder and how severe the wetting is, or if they are passing small or large amounts of urine, so your doctor will ask you to keep a diary of your child’s urine habits and fluid intake ( how much they drink each time, how often they empty their bladder and how much urine they pass each time, and if they are wet before or after passing urine).
- Please follow this link to obtain such a diary to use before your see your doctor, as completing this will help with your child’s initial and follow-up consultations. Link to bladder diary: Bladder Diary0018.pdf
