  • Food triggers

    Keep up the great response!!
    Hi my name is Jennifer O'Neill and I am a dietetic intern studying IC. I am working on a research paper to make health professionals more aware of IC and the special diet. If you'd like to help please email me a response to the following questions or post on here: [email protected]
    1) What foods are your personal triggers?
    2) What IC symptoms do you experience when you eat these foods?
    3)Age, Gender, other medical illnesses or diagnoses?
    4) Have you ever seen a registered dietitian RD for a specialized diet or questions?

    thanks so much!

        Hi Jennifer,

        Welcome to the ICN. So glad you chose IC and diet for your research paper. I'm newly diagnosed and food is still trial and error for me. One thing I'm learning fast is that diet makes a BIG difference! I will get back to you and be glad to answer any questions. Thanks for your interest

          I'm also glad you have chosen IC as a topic. Not very many dietitians are familiar with IC and diet requirements --- I am sending you a private message to respond to your questions.

          Warm personal regards,

          Stay safe
