Guidelines about Nocturia
Introduction to Guidelines
Guidelines and Expert Consensus Documents aim to present all the relevant evidence on a particular issue in order to help physicians to weigh the benefits and risks of a particular diagnostic or therapeutic procedure. They should be helpful in everyday clinical decision-making. It is therefore of great importance that Guidelines and recommendations are presented in formats that are easily interpreted.
To date, several Guidelines have been produced on the diagnosis and treatment of lower urinary tract symptoms (LUTS), and many of them also have included Nocturia. Of course, the aim of each individual Guideline can differ from the other, as some have been specifically addressed to investigate LUTS in men, some others to generally investigate only diagnosis and treatment of UI.
