  • Intaad kaadi dhigto mar kasta.
  • Sidaad dareentay siday u xoogan tahay rabitaanka inaad faaruqiso mar kasta.

How do I measure the amount of urine passed?

Put a container (like an ice cream container) in the toilet. Now sit on the toilet and relax with your feet on the floor. Pass urine into the container. Then tip the urine into a jug to measure it. Men may want to stand and pass urine directly into a measuring jug.

Sidee baan u cabiraa degdegga?

Shaxdaan waxay muujinaysaa sida loo adeegsado tiro si ay u sifayso degdegga aad dareemayso.

How do I measure leaking using a Pad Weight Test?

This test helps to work out how much urine you leak over a few days. To do this test you will need some accurate scales for weighing. You do this test by:

  1. weighing a dry pad in a plastic bag before you wear the pad,
  2. 1then weighing the wet pad in a plastic bag after you wear it, and
  3. taking the weight of the dry pad away from the weight of the wet pad.

This will show how much you have leaked because each gram equals one ml.

Like this:

Wet pad

400g.

Dry pad

150g.

Weight Difference

250g.

Amount leaked =

250mls.

Sidee baan u cabiraa sii-daynta anoo adeegsanaya Baarista Miisaanka Baadka?

Baaristan waxay gacan ka gaysataa si loo ogaado intay le’eg tahay kaadida aad sii daysey dhowr maalmood. Si loo sameeyo baaristan waxaad u baahan tahay heerarka miisaanka oo saxda ah. Baaristan waxaad ku samayn kartaa:

  1. adoo ku miisaama baadka oo qalalan Kiishka balaastiga ah ka hor intaadan xiran baadka,
  2. ka dibna ku miisaama baadka qoyan Kiishka balaastiga ah ka dib markaad xirato, iyo
  3. markaana ka jara miisaanka baadka qalalan kan miisaanka baadka qoyan.

Tani waxay muujinaysaa intaad sii daysey sababtoo ah garaamkii kasta wuxuu la mid yahay hal ml.

Sidan oo kale waxyaalaha qaarkood :

Baad qoyan

400g.

Baad qalalan

150g.

Faraqa miisaanka

250g.

Xaddiga la-siidaayey =

250mls.

What will happen during the check up?

During the check up, you will be asked about your diet and your weight. You will also be asked about your past health and your health now. You may be asked:

  • How is your flow of urine?
  • How many times at night are you woken by the need to empty your bladder?
  • Are you taking any medicines or vitamins? Medicines can make big changes to the way the bladder and bowel work. Make a list of ALL the medicines you take, not just those the doctor has prescribed. Note the dose you take and how often you take them. It is a good idea to take all of your medicines with you when you go for the check up.
  • How much alcohol or caffeine do you drink? Drinking a lot of alcohol or caffeine-based drinks like coffee, cola or sports drinks may upset the bladder.
  • Are you constipated? Constipation can mean straining to open your bowels. This puts a big load onto your pelvic floor muscles. Straining can damage the pelvic floor muscles. Constipation can also upset the bladder.
  • Do you have any bowel accidents? Do you leak from your anus (back passage)? Weak pelvic floor muscles could mean you pass wind or bowel motions when you don’t mean to.
  • Does your bladder problem affect your sex life in any way?

Questions for women only:

  • Do you have any children? Pregnancy and having babies can change bladder control.
  • Are you going through menopause? Hormone changes can make bladder problems worse.

Maxaa dhaci doona inta lagu jiro baarista?

Inta lagu jiro, waxaa lagu weydiin doonaa wax ku saabsan cuntadaada, culeyskaaga, caafimaadkaagii hore iyo sida caafimaadkaagu hadda yahay. Waxaa laga yaabaa in lagu weydiiyo:

  • Side bay tahay socodka kaadidaada?
  • Imisa jeer habeenkii ayaad toostaa markaad u baahato inaad faaruqiso kaadi-haystaada.
  • Miyaad qaadataa wax daawo ah ama fitimiino ah? Daawooyinku waxay sameyn karaan isbedelo waa weyn sida kaadi heysteenu iyo caloosheenu u shaqeeyaan. Liis ka same dhammaan daawooyinka aad qaadato, ma aha oo kaliya kuwa dhakhtarku kuu qoray. Ogsoonow dhooska aad qaadato iyo sidaad badanaa u qaadato. Waxaa fiican inaad soo qaadato dhammaan daawooyinkaaga oo dhan markii aad aadayso baarista.
  • Ilaa intee aalkolo ama kafeyn ayaad cabtaa? Cabitaanka aalkolo ama kafeyn badan oo cabitaan ah sida cabitaanka kofeyga iyo kookakoolaha waxaa laga yaabaa inay wareeriyaan kaadi heysta.
  • Calooshu ma ku fadhidaa? Calool-fadhigu waxay macnahiisu noqon kartaa majiirid si aad u furto mindhicirkaaga. Taasi waxay culays weyn saari kartaa muruqyada miskahaaga. Majiirashadu waxay waxyeellay kartaa muruqyada miskahaaga. Calool-fadhigu wuxuu kaloo kicin karaa kaadi-haysta.
  • Marna makugu dhacday shil mindhicirkaaga ah? Ma shuuqdaa futadaada (gadaalka dambe)? Muruqyada miskaha oo dabacsan waxay noqon karaan inaad dhuusada wado ama calooshu ku socoto markiii aadan u baahnayn.
  • Dhibaatada kaadi-haystaada sina ma usaamaysaa nolosha galmadaada?

Su’aalaha haweenka keliya la weeydiiyo:

  • Wax carruur ah ma leedahay? Uurka iyo cunugyadu la dhalaa waxay wax ka baddeli karaan kontaroolka kaadi‑haysta.
  • Miyaad gaartey xaaladda dhalmo-dayska? Isbaddallada ku dhaca hormoonada waxay kaadi-haysta ka dhigi karaan mid liidata.

Some of the tests that could be used for your bladder control check up include:

  • a physical check (if you say this is okay).
  • a urine sample may be taken for testing.
  • a blood test may be taken for diabetes or prostate problems.
  • an x-ray or ultrasound.
  • a urodynamic test is a specialist check to show how your bladder works.

Baarista qaarkeed kuwaas oo loo adeegsan karo hubinta kontaroolka kaadi-haystaada waxaa ka mid ah:

  • jeegarayn jidheed (Haddii aad sidaas waa Okay tiraahdo).
