      I also follow the diet in the Patient Handbook Donna mentioned. It's also important to become a label reader & to eliminate foods with acidic preservatives (citric, ascorbic, malic acids) , artificial colors & flavors.

      Good luck! Hoping you are on the road to recovery---

        Do look through the handbook and you can find lots on the IC diet on there. I recently decided to get more serious with the diet, and discovered that anything with tomatoes make me flare up and have a lot of pain for days afterward... so beware of tomatoes. Most people with iC cannot handle them.
