If you suffer from urinary incontinence you KNOW that you do. The evidence is indisputable, uncomfortable, and often embarrassing. You may wonder why diagnostic tests would even be considered. Well, because incontinence is often a symptom of something else, it is important to know why it is happening. Once your doctor has this information, they can determine the best way to address your issues.
There are a number of tests used to diagnose incontinence, but before any are ordered you should undergo a complete physical and discuss your current situation with your physician. Information you should provide includes, but is not limited to:
Based upon the results of your physical and your answers to the above questions your doctor may order additional tests. These can include one or more of the following. Some of the tests that doctors begin with include:
Other tests may include an EMG, a Cystoscopy (where a tube is inserted into the Urethra), or a Cystourethrogram (X-rays taken while urinating). Finally, if you are considering surgery, your urologist may order what is known as urodynamic testing. This is a series of tests that can include measuring your urine flow rate (uroflowmetry), your urine pressure, and urine left in the bladder after you use the restroom. It is important to be honest with your doctor and undergo the recommended testing. The information provided can help diagnose underlying issues and identify ways for you to live both a healthier and more enjoyable life.
