Adjusting diet helps to reduce symptoms or avoid the occurrence of symptoms. According to the data collected by the interstitial cystitis Association (ICA), the control of symptoms by adjusting diet varies from person to person.
Although for patients with interstitial cystitis, there are some experiences and suggestions on the diet that can be followed, but to find a suitable diet habit still needs the patient's unremitting efforts to adjust and experience.

Sometimes it is a long process, and it needs a strong self-control force because the adjustment of any kind of habit is not easy. Generally speaking, acid food, pickled products, smoked products, stimulating food, and drinks should be avoided as far as possible. Now I will summarize the data and experience of clinical patients. The foods that should be avoided are as follows:
A. Cheese, yogurt, chocolate, bean products, citric acid, coffee
B. Tomatoes, onions, peppers, ginger products, vinegar, sauces (including homemade bean paste)
C. Sour apple, apricot, orange, grape, peach, pineapple, plum, sour grass, sour cherry
D. Aged, canned, pickled, processed or smoked meat and fish products, corned beef and meat products containing nitrates and nitrites
E. Alcoholic beverages (including beer and liquor), carbonated beverages such as soda, coffee or strong tea, acid juice, especially orange or date juice

The best way for interstitial cystitis to control your diet is that you can try eating what most IC patients think it can be tolerated at the beginning, then slowly increase other foods, try to eat a small amount of multiple meals instead of overeating, and record the diet log, record every kind of food you can eat.
After a few weeks, start eating one forbidden food at a time. If the disease does not recur after eating, you can continue to eat it. If symptoms get worse, you can remove it from your diet list. After you finish the diet screening, you can try to add a small amount of forbidden food to your diet list every other week.
