Patient Education

As part of the nonpharmacologic interventions mentioned previously, patients should be counseled on bowel habits, medications (appropriate use, side effects), comorbidities, fluid intake, weight loss, scheduled voiding (if cognitively impaired), and reduced caffeine intake.[8] Pads should also be offered, if deemed necessary.[8] Patients should be encouraged to speak openly with their providers about LUTS in order to avoid developing a negative self-perception and poor quality of life, which can lead to additional comorbidities.[1,2,5]
