  • EGGS?

    Can someone explain? The list of "OKAY" foods on this website lists eggs. The list my Uro gave me, excludes eggs. Whats up with that?

    Hi there! I noticed the same thing. There's a lot of discrepancies between the list on here and the one my doctor gave me. What I've found is it's a little different for everyone. I personally don't think I have a problem eating eggs - I usually eat eggbeaters (which are made from egg whites) and I don't have a problem. I've noticed that some of the things on the list don't seem to bother me and others that arent' listed do bother me sometimes.

    I hope you get an answer from someone because I was wondering the same thing.

    Good luck!

      The reason for all the "discrepancies" is simply because different ICers react to foods and beverages differently. All of the diet lists are merely suggestions, what MOST ICers are sensitive to. There is no definitive list that is 100% true for all ICers. This really is quite an individual disease when it comes to diet. Personally diet affects me very much, whereas diet may not affect some other ICers at all. My suggestion is to determine your own list of "trigger" items by recording what you eat and monitoring how you feel. I did the elminiation diet many years ago to determine my trigger foods, and it helped me a lot.

      Good luck
