The Best Foods for a Healthy Bladder

HMU has 10 locations around the greater Houston area to help treat overactive bladder

You may have heard of Movember, but did you know that November is also Bladder Health Month?

If you have interstitial cystitis or overactive bladder, this is the perfect time to begin a more bladder-friendly diet. Although there are many treatments for these conditions, your diet is a great place to start.

There are many foods that may cause your IC or OAB to flare up, although they can vary from one person to the next. To determine which foods may cause problems, the Urology Care Foundation recommends trying an elimination diet. This diet requires you to stop eating any foods that may cause bladder problems. After a few weeks on the elimination diet, you can begin to reintroduce one food at a time to determine if it may be a problem.

Although you will probably find that you need to avoid some foods, there are still plenty of options available. Here are some great dishes that are not only delicious but also bladder-friendly! You may be surprised at what you’ll find.

Caramel Popcorn

This delicious snack is always a favorite. Since caramel popcorn is a crowd pleaser, it’s a great choice for parties and get-togethers. Enjoy more recipes from the Urology Care Foundation here.

Savory Crushed Blueberry Sauce

Keep Bladder Health Month in mind as you make Holiday dinners. This dish is the perfect bladder-friendly alternative for cranberry sauce. IC Friendly Recipes has many other recipes for the holidays and more.

Spinach Quiche

Quiche is perfect for breakfast, but can also be a wonderful lunch or dinner. It can even be prepared ahead of time and baked just before you are ready to eat.

These aren’t the only recipes that can have a positive impact on your bladder health. Remembering which foods can contribute to your bladder health is a simple way to improve your daily life. These tips and suggestions are the perfect place to start! Although diet can’t completely get rid of your IC or OAB, it’s a great way to begin your journey.
