Urinary Problems and Injuries,Age 11 and Younger - Preparing For Your Appointment

To prepare for your appointment, see the topic Making the Most of Your Appointment.

You can help your child's doctor diagnose and treat your child's condition by being prepared to answer the following questions:

  • What are your child's symptoms?
  • When did the symptoms start?
  • What do you think may have caused the symptoms?
  • Has your child had a fever?
  • Has your child ever had a problem like this in the past? If so, when? What was done to treat it?
  • Does your family have a history of urinary problems?
  • Has your child had a recent injury to the belly, pelvis, or back?
  • What home treatments have you tried, and how effective were they?
  • Does your child have any health risks?

A urine specimen may be collected during your child's office visit. Do not encourage your child to go to the bathroom immediately before the office visit. Special urine collection bags or a catheter may be used to collect urine from a baby or toddler who is not toilet trained.
