Teleseminar on Diet and Interstitial Cystitis Recorded August 20, 2014
At noon Central time on the third Wednesday of each month, Dr. Penny Wilson hosts interactive calls to talk about current topics and answer your questions. The calls typically are 30 minutes, sometimes longer. To find out about upcoming calls, check out the Eating for Performance Facebook page.
On August 20, 2014, Dr. Penny interviewed Julie Beyer, MA, RDN about interstitial cystitis and diet. Recorded with a live audience of about 30 people, the teleseminar is now available as a recording. To make it easier for patients to find this program, Dr. Penny has graciously given me permission to put the direct link on my website. It is long (a bit over one hour and 20 minutes) but it is free for patients and has a LOT of valuable information!

American Urological Association recommended dietary modification as one of the first line treatments for the puzzling and painful bladder disorder, "interstitial cystitis," suggesting that patients partner with registered dietitians to help them determine their personal trigger foods. In fact, over 92% of IC patients say that various food and beverages can increase their symptoms and over 84% of patients surveyed said that modifying their diet improves their quality of life. This makes dietary intervention the most successful treatment available for interstitial cystitis. Dietitians can play a key role in helping IC patients control their symptoms by teaching patients various dietary and lifestyle modification techniques.
