    Just use a notebook. All you need is the day/date, time and how much fluid intake, time and void output, and what symptoms you were feeling between, during and immediately after voiding. Along side the voiding diary you could also keep a food diary if you feel foods might be causing issues.

        I tell patients to use a stenographer's notebook--one that has the line down the middle of the page. That way you can note foods and other significant events (sexual intercourse or your period, for example) in one column then the symptoms in the other.

        I also have downloadable diaries on my website: http://ic-diet.com/recipes%20and%20resources.html

        They are at the top of the page.

        I hope that helps!

        PS: I did a diary/calendar when I was first diagnosed and it was the best thing I did! It really helped me remember some of the small things and the doctor REALLY paid attention when I took all of the notes to him.

        Did you know that up to 94% of interstitial cystitis patients find some symptom relief when they change their diet, and that dietary modification is recommended as a first line treatment for IC? Check out the IC Food List to get started!
