  • IC and Endo Diet List

    Just wondering if there is a IC/Endo diet, or if anyone has a endo diet. When I had my hysto years ago, I never was informed of a diet.

    I haven't been able to get my condition under control using the IC diet and medications. I'm allergic to Elmiron, instills hurt me badly.
    Diagnosis: Endometriosis, IC, PID, PCS, PFD, PN/PNE, VV, fibro, Pelvic Adhesions, DDD, Hysterectomy at a young age. Unable to take estrogen, causes pain—extremely bad pain.

    Thankful: For all the support and comfort I receive on this site.

    I haven't seen a diet for endo patients. Does anyone know if there is one?

      I found a list of things to avoid:


      FOODS TO AVOID


      •wheat * - this includes breads, cakes and pasta products, all based on wheat
      •red meats - promotes negative prostaglandins
      •refined and concentrated carbohydrates - bread, flour, cakes made from refined flours
      •refined sugars and honey - causes inflammatory reaction
      •alcohol - consumes vit B stored in the liver
      •caffeine which is found in tea, coffee, soft drinks -increases abdominal cramps and increases estrogen levels
      •chocolate - as it contains sugars
      •dairy produce including all milk and cheese - inflammatory
      •fried food, margarine and hydrogenated fats - can stimulate negative prostaglandins
      •soy products and soy protein products - tamari can be used in small amounts
      •tinned and frozen packaged foods as little as possible
      •additives and preservatives - increase chemical load on the system

        Endo Diet

        meResque

        Thank you, I new gluten was a problem, but I have had a hard time sticking to a gluten diet. I guess I need to try harder. Pasta is so quick to cook when flaring and suffering from pain. I also drink a lot of milk, and when I eat meat, which these days is rare, I mainly eat red meat. My son has taken on the choir of cooking, and he really likes red meat. I also use honey in my peppermint tea.

          A lot of grocery stores carry GF pasta these days. It is fairly cheap (as far GF products go) and there are many brands to choose from. I buy rice pasta and the difference between it and wheat pasta is hardly noticeable.
          Me: Canadian. 31.

          IC symptoms: Cramping, burning, frequency. Pain!

          Pain management: Ibuprofen. AZO. Marijuana. Prelief. The IC Diet.

            Have you been tested for celiac disease? They suspected that might be one of the problems I was having (I have severe IC and endometriosis, so they wanted to rule it out)...I was pretty sure I didn't have it, and the results did come back negative. Maybe you should get tested for it.

              I have been wondering about celiac disease. I will ask my doctor about getting tested. Thanks for the replies everyone.
