Dietary Irritants to the Urinary Tract
Acidic Foods to Be Avoided
If bladder symptoms are related to dietary factors, strict adherence to a diet which eliminates the above food products should bring significant relief in 10 days. The proof is resuming your old dietary habits followed by the return of symptom complex. Once you are feeling better, you can begin to add these things back into your diet, one at a time. This way, if something does cause your symptoms, you will be able to identify what it is. When you do begin to add foods back into your diet, it is crucial that you maintain a significant water intake. Water should be the majority of what you drink everyday.*

Always consult your physician before making dietary changes.
