Can Food Cause Flares for Interstitial Cystitis Sufferers?

When you think about dealing with your interstitial cystitis, you probably think about your bladder first and not your stomach - or your diet. While it is true that your bladder plays the primary role in your condition, food sensitivities can make your condition worse. Although foods affect people differently, there are a few that tend to be problematic for most people living with interstitial cystitis. Innovations Stem Cell Center treats patients living with interstitial cystitis with fat stem cell therapy.

What Is Interstitial Cystitis?

Interstitial cystitis causes pain and pressure in the bladder. Sufferers of the condition experience frequent urination, inflammation and pain in the pelvic region.

The condition can affect both men and women. Some causes of the disease include age, some autoimmune disorders, gender, and even complexion.

Foods Affect People Differently

Research studies have shown that diet can cause flares for people living with interstitial cystitis. That being said, some people know what causes their flare-ups, while others have not identified their triggers yet.

On top of this, some individuals have found that eating foods in their raw or fresh form cause issues, but when these foods are cooked, they don't cause problems.

Food allergies or intolerances further complicate the matter and can cause interstitial cystitis flares.

Common Food Triggers

While food triggers differ from person to person, some foods affect a wide range of people living with interstitial cystitis. These include coffee, tea, energy drinks and other caffeinated beverage; soda; wine and alcohol; and juices. Spicy foods and peppers can also be problematic for interstitial cystitis patients. Food and drinks with artificial sweeteners can also cause flares.

How to Identify Trigger Foods

You can help find the foods that cause you problems with a few tips from Innovations Stem Cell Center:

1. Consider the known foods to cause issues: caffeinated beverages, sodas, juices, spicy foods and artificial sweeteners.
2. Journal it - keep track of foods you eat and identify what makes your symptoms worse.
3. Eliminate foods that bother you to see if your symptoms improve.
