  • Whey protein isolate?

    I was thinking about ordering some energy bars (from this cool website where you pick what goes in them) and I saw Whey protein isolate. Is this ok for us? Is it different than Whey Protein?

    It is all Whey Protein. An isolate just absorbs into your system more quickly then a concentrate. I drink Whey Protein powder everyday. Make sure it is an all natural Whey with no artificial sweeteners or flavorings added. I buy IsoNatural by Allmax. The only ingredient is whey protein isolate nothing else. It is expensive around 80 dollars for 5 pounds but I know it's IC friendly. It lasts about 2-3 months at 1 scoop a day.

    Tried:
    Detrol:only took one pill and it made me sick
    Elmiron:caused horrible pain(took 1 week)
    CystaQ:caused alot of burning and pain(only took one pill)
    Wellbutrin:only on it for three days as it caused alot of bladder pain
    Elavil:Took one pill and it caused a flare that lasted almost two weeks. It was the longest flare I've ever had. Never again..ouch
    Prelief:made my bladder burn and feel tingly.

    Take:
    Uracyst:Started May 19 2011
    Enablex:take one pill daily with no issues
    Naproxen:for pain as needed
    Baking Soda with water:as needed and it's a God send. It brings down my pain within 20 mins.
    Venofer: Started April 2012 by IV for low Iron. I do not tolerate oral Iron so this is the route I had to take.Does not bother my bladder but did have other side effects. I take Benedryl with each treatment to avoid side effects.
    Supplements:Whey Protein powder daily
    Dessert Harvest Aloe It has been helping alot but I can only take it every two days as my "die off" reaction has been severe.

      Protein Shakes and IC

      Hi,

      I was wondering if anyone noticed an increase in frequency after drinking protein shakes? I just started having a protein shake when I'm done my work out and I don't know if its the culprit but today my frequency is out've control. I did about an hour of cardio and then a long yoga session and I could barely make it through an 30 minutes without intense frequency. Has anyone else had this problem? It just seems like I can't figure out what it is that sets me off and its so frustrating! Thanks for your thoughts.

        Hi Whitney,

        I have my bars with whey protein, but everything else is just nuts and fruit. Maybe there's somekind of trigger ingredient? What flavor are they?

          WhitneyWonders Read the ingredient list. Protein powders are notorious for adding all kinds of preservative and artificial sweeteners. I only use IsoNatural by Allmax I never use a flavored protein(you can add your own IC friendly fruit or mix in fruit juice). Again the only ingredient is Whey Protein Isolate and that's it. If you read your ingredients and there is nothing iffy I would try a different one. If then it give you trouble you may have an intolerence to Whey Protein. It may just be one of your triggers. Good luck and let us know.
