  • Baking Soda...

    Sodium bicarbonate is the chemical compound with the formula NaHCO3. Sodium bicarbonate (baking soda) is commonly used as an antacid for short-term relief of stomach upset, TO CORRECT ACIDOSIS IN KIDNEY DISORDERS, TO MAKE THE URINE ALKALINE DURING BLADDER INFECTIONS and to minimize uric acid crystallization during gout treatment. Prescription sodium bicarbonate products are given by injection to treat metabolic acidosis and some drug intoxications. Sodium bicarbonate is available as a nonprescription medical as well as a general house hold item. It is also used with other non-prescription drugs for short-term treatment of various conditions to treat anything from fever to moderate pain.

    Many people find taking soda in water helps with IC flares. Those of us who need to restrict sodium intake for blood pressure or other health problems need to bypass this one.

      baking soda

      I find sodium bicarb to be very helpful both for my bladder and my GERD. It did elevate my BP one time, but it hasn't happenend since, so there may have been some other factors involved.

        I think Calcium Citrate does the same thing with fewer effects.

          Yes, all citrates alkalize urine

          Yes, you don't have to take baking soda to alkalize your urine, any citrates will do the same thing without the sodium hit (calcium citrate, magnesium citrate and potassium citrate).

          All citrates encourage an alkaline shift; so patients already taking a calcium/magnesium supplement should switch to a calcium citrate/magnesium citrate preparation. The urologychannel.com

          The benefit of this also is alkaline urine helps keep bacterial infections at bay because they can't survive in this environment.

            The citrate information is interesting. Thanks Cindi and Lindee! I plan to look into this a little further.

              I take them at every meal, either magnesium citrate or calcium citrate. I haven't tested my urine ph but maybe I should. They seem especially helpful in the morning when I drink my one mug of coffee (low acid) for the day.
