  • Eggs or no Eggs?????

    Hello ladies. I was just diagnosed last month with IC and I amd still working on doing the IC diet. In the literature I got when I started Elmiron it said eggs were a no no. I located a list somewhere on this site that has been very helpful. It says eggs are ok. Just confused and scarred to eat something I shouldn't. help!

    Hi. I don't know your answer, but I used to be sensitive to eggs. I can eat them now but not many and not often.

      Eggs are on the "usually okay" list. They aren't a problem for me.

      Stay safe

          I know what you mean Sara. I noticed in the little booklet that they gave me w/ my Elmiron that eggs were a no no but on here it said they were okay. I tried them and I have had no problem with them at all. In fact I had an omlet the other morning when I was out for breakfast.

          I have been diagnoised for 6 1/2 years now. I have taken a long break from the ICN but really miss helping out my fellow IC patients and want to get back into posting.
          1st hydro 4/07 showed no visible signs of IC but tons of mast cells in all my biopsy samples which did prove IC.
          2nd hydro 4/13/09 showed dark purple glomerulations and I had a capacity of 450 cc's. This hydro proved that my IC had progressed.
          I have tried every oral medication as well as rescue instills and DMSO.

          I have been lucky enough to see Dr Hanno, the top IC specialist in PA who has told me due to the fact that I have not responded to any "standard" treatments that I have a severe, end stage case of IC with a horrible quality of life (didn't have to tell me that last part!)

            Eggs are no bother to me. Love em!

              The best thing would be to just try them as you start adding things back in to the elimination diet. They were the first thing I tried and it was fine, but then again, most foods I've tried haven't been a problem. I wonder if it's in the elmiron info because a fair number of people are allergic to eggs and IC flares with some peoples' allergies?

                You know with IC we are all so different in what symptoms we have, what meds work and what we can or can not eat. Everyone is so different. Like the others I have no problem with eggs, but there might be some out there that might have a problem with them. What I would do just to make sure, if you want to try something is to do it one at a time, then you will know which one will aggrevate your IC
