  • need some advice ok IC foods

    I am new to IC only being diagnosed for a couple of weeks. trying to get on the IC diet. I was wondering about Folic Acid is it ok or not ok to have? I got the list of ok foods from web site and bread was ok but it has folic acid in it and I was not sure? If anyone could help I would appreciate it. BAMAFAN

    Folic acid as part of wheat (like bread) is not usually a problem for us.
    (Don't know about folic acid supplements though.)

    I am not a medical authority nor do I offer medical advice. In all cases, I strongly encourage you to discuss your medical treatment with your personal medical care provider. Only they can, and should, give medical recommendations to you.
