You Are Not Alone!

Between 3 and 6% of the population, or roughly 3 to 8 million women in the United States likely have interstitial cystitis or IC. In addition, approximately 1 to 4 million men and countless children also suffer with the pelvic pain, urgent and frequent urination that characterizes this puzzling disease. It is likely that this estimate is low, since IC is often confused with other pelvic and urinary tract diseases. Of these millions of people suffering, over 92% report that certain foods and beverages trigger their symptoms and that removing these foods from their diet can make a huge difference in their quality of life.

Not only is diet modification the most effective treatment for IC patients, diet is something a patient CAN control in a situation that often seems uncontrollable. So, take some time and roam around the site, and if I can help you in any way, please don't hesitate to contact me!
