Underactive Bladder

An Underactive Bladder condition, which is also known as Underactive Bladder Syndrome (UAB) and Detrusor Underactivity (DU), is a urological condition characterized by bladder underactivity causing difficulty in voiding, resulting in incomplete bladder emptying. Patients with UAB have a diminished sense of when the bladder is full and are not able to contract the muscles sufficiently, resulting in incomplete bladder emptying.

Dr. Melanie Crites-Bachert recommends the MyGo Time app (http://mygotimeapp.com) for patients who wish to track their bladder and bowel habits and share the results easily with their physician (a valuable commodity if using telehealth services.) The images below show the features of the app (which is now available for Android users as well as iPhones / iPads).
