Genrally speaking, patients with Interstitial Cystitis should avoid caffeine, alcohol, and nicotine, as these are all bladder irritants. In addition, spicy foods should be avoided as well, and anything that could make your urine acidic in nature. This would include citrus juices. However, other patients with IC have reported dairy products may exacerbate their symptoms; so; each patient may respond to different foods and beverages in an individual way. There is some trial and error on each patient's part to see what items will make symptoms better or worse. A liberal use of fluids, especially water, is most helpful. Keeping your urine dilute will actually alleviate some of the pain and discomfort with voiding. Ideally, an evaluation by a specialist with expertise in IC vital to treatment. Good luck.
