  • I'm Confused!!

    I printed out alist of acidy foods from the Prelief website and it lists:
    pears, pear juice, peppers and olive oil. All are supposed to be "IC safe".
    How come?
    Is the acid different? I know how dumb that question sounds

    Thanks, Erin

    I am not the expert here but there is percentages, some percentage of acid is easier to handle than others. You need to test smaller ones out for yourself. If you are really bad giving up the whole list on Prelief's website may help you.

      I would rely on the list found in the Patient Handbook on this site. You'll find the handbook at http://www.ic-network.com/handbook/

      I can eat pears with no problem.

          Hi, I'm new and confused. The question that I would like to ask you is, where did you find on the Prelief web site that it listed the foods with high acid or "problem" food? I have been searching and am not able to find anything. Thanks for your help ahead of time. Judy G

            Dear Judy:

            Our new website does not contain a specific list of high or low acid foods.

            Our recommendation is to take at least 2 Prelief tablets with each meal as something could be mildly acidic and still be a problem for some. (You can also take 2 Prelief tablets at bedtime if desired).
