    If you think you may have interstitial cystitis (IC), it's easy to feel discouraged. But rest assured, in many people IC is a treatable medical condition that can be improved over time.

    If you suspect your bladder pain and/or discomfort may be IC, or you have been diagnosed with IC and are managing its symptoms, consider the following:



    • Track your IC symptoms

      Keep a record of the severity and frequency of your symptoms, and see if any patterns exist over time.

    • Helpful IC dietary guidelines

      Since certain foods and drinks can trigger flare-ups of your IC symptoms, it is important to pay attention to your diet. Following these dietary guidelines may help you reduce flare-ups.
