Life Syle Measures Alone

The initial approach in managing bothersome ‘waterworks’ lower urinary tract symptoms (LUTS) is to employ conservative lifestyle measures such as: fluid intake management, avoiding caffeinated drinks and pelvic floor exercises.

However, commonly, medication is prescribed as a first line treatment option. Attention to detail in assessing fluid intake and voiding habits can significantly improve some patients’ perception of their symptoms. Please see our information sheet on bladder training.
