Visualize your complaints

Bladder problems arise from a number of frequently observed urinary tract disorders and affect a large part of our population. The most common problems are frequent and/or excessive urination, pain associated with urination and loss of urine. Many people feel shame or experience anxiety about the symptoms caused by their bladder problems. And feelings of a suboptimal personal hygiene may affect their sexual behavior and intimate relationships. If you suffer from bladder problems, the first step towards tackling them is to make clear what exactly your complaints are and how severe they are.

The diagnosis of bladder problems

Bladder problems can be caused by one of the following conditions:

  • Cystitis: viral and bacterial bladder infections affect the majority of women and sometimes also men.
  • Urinary incontinence: condition where involuntary loss of urine is a social or hygienic problem.
  • Overactive Bladder (= unstable bladder): the bladder does not store urine as it should, but sends out signals of urgency too often.
  • Interstitial Cystitis (= the cause of the so-called ‘urgency and frequency syndrome’): an inflamed bladder wall of unknown origin with pain and severe urgency.
  • Bladder cancer: according to the American Cancer Society, the fourth most common cancer in developed countries all over the world.

In order to make a correct diagnosis of what causes your specific problems, your doctor will need a thorough insight into your drinking and voiding behavior and your pattern of urine losses during the day and night. Until now, such insight could only be obtained by filling in pen-and-paper based voiding diaries. With the launch of iP Voiding Diary, you can discretely capture such valuable data in the privacy of your own bath room and enter that into your iPhone (or iPod touch).

iP Voiding Diary generates comparative reports, that help you understand what is wrong and prepare you for discussing your bladder problems with your doctor. At the same time, your doctor will welcome this extra information as valuable input for additional diagnostic procedures towards identifying the specific cause of your bladder problems.

Developed by professionals

Many of the above causes of bladder problems can be cured or dealt with if diagnosed at an early stage. iP Voiding Diary facilitates that early diagnosis. iP Voiding Diary was built with the help of professional urologists and therefore meets the requirements that your doctor has for evaluating your voiding behavior. Usually such data recording is done in periods of 24 hours. iP Voiding Diary allows you to purchase exactly the amount of cycles that your doctor prescribes for your situation; usually 1 to 3 cycles are sufficient for an adequate further analysis of your problems.

“The biggest problem in my clinic? Shame! People just wait too long before seeking medical advice. That’s why I see iP Voiding Diary as urological first aid at home.”
Erich Taubert urologist
