The best diet for interstitial cystitis (IC) is one that is balanced across all the food groups and includes a wide variety of foods.

An elimination diet is your first step to figure out exactly which foods might be bothersome for you. An important tool to use during an elimination diet is a food diary. It will help you keep track what you are eating and determine your reaction to specific foods and beverages. It will also make it easier for you to identify other factors which may be impacting your IC symptoms, such as stress, exercise, or medicines.
