In Urinary Incontinence: How Is Urinary Incontinence Diagnosed? the Office on Women’s Health, United States Department of Health and Human Services, Womenshealth.gov elaborate on:

“Your doctor or nurse may ask you to keep a diary for 2 to 3 days to track when you empty your bladder or leak urine. The diary may help your doctor or nurse see patterns in the incontinence that give clues about the possible cause and treatments that might work for you”.

In Diet Habits: Can Your Diet Affect Your Bladder or Bowel Control? the (United States) National Association for Continence (NAFC) elaborate on:

“There is no “diet” to cure incontinence. However, diet can have a profound effect on your voiding patterns. There are symptoms you may be able to manage just by altering your diet. You may want to complete a bladder diary and monitor your food and fluid intake to see if you are able to find any relationship between your intake and urination. Remember that certain “natural” or “energy” supplements may also contain ingredients that irritate the bladder, so read labels carefully. You may want to see if eliminating one or all of the items discussed in this section improves your bladder control”.
