Frequency and Volume Chart - Print-friendly version of this chart, click here!

This chart is a very important part of the preparation you need for your appointment with the urologist.  It will help provide your urologist with information that may relate to your symptoms and will be useful in making a diagnosis and providing treatment. It is essential that you complete the chart and bring it with you to your appointment

Please continue your normal schedule of eating/drinking and activity so we have a record of how much you normally drink (fluid intake), how much urine you make, and how often you empty your bladder on a daily basis.

Keep the diary with you and fill it out, as completely as possible, for three days before your Urology appointment. These do not have to be three consecutive days, but should each encompass a 24-hour period of time. To measure your urine, you can purchase an inexpensive measuring cup (i.e. 2 cup). You want something that will be easy to carry with you.
