Happy Labor Day from the staff at Dr. Davis’ Office!
While celebrating this holiday, remember to avoid foods that may trigger your interstitial cystitis! Alcoholic beverages such as beer, wine, and liquor are irritants to the bladder and can cause an increase in frequency and pain. Spicy foods such as hot barbeque sauce, salsa, and other condiments are also bladder irritants.
We know it is unrealistic to avoid all of those great foods, especially on a holiday when food is typically the centerpiece to a holiday celebration, so remember to pick up your Prelief on the way to your party! Prelief reduces the acid in all food and beverages so you can enjoy a more comfortable diet. It is available for purchase at most drug stores such as Walgreens, Rite Aid, and CVS.
