This guideline outlines the urological problems commonly associated with neurological disease. Most of this is familiar stuff. I will highlight things that stick-out or are new.
Remember that urological problems can be associated with bowel problems and sexual problems too and that these can cause social problems (such as carer stress) as well as physical problems such as recurrent UTI and renal impairment.
UTI – if assessing for UTI in someone with a catheter – do not take a bag sample to test as they will frequently show colonisation without infection – get a sample direct from the catheter.
