Your diet can play a major role when you are dealing with urinary incontinence; certain foods and beverages are known to both irritate the bladder and worsen urinary incontinence symptoms. In many cases, incontinence caused by diet can be prevented by changing some of your food and drink choices.
Diet related incontinence is caused directly by the food you eat and the beverages you drink. If you’re concerned that your urinary incontinence is being caused by your diet, it’s important that you discuss your situation with your doctor. Urinary incontinence symptoms include accidental leakage, the inability to get to the restroom in time, difficulty urinating or only passing small amounts at a time, and feeling like your bladder isn’t empty after you go.
On the other hand, if your bladder is healthy, you should be urinating between four to six times each day, once or not at all overnight, and not having any issues with leakage in between.
It’s important to treat diet incontinence by cutting out the foods and beverages that can worsen your condition. The types of foods and drinks doctors recommend eliminating from your diet include:
A healthy, well-balanced diet is key to treating and managing urinary incontinence. To manage incontinence, it is important to make sure you get the right balance of fluids every day; cutting back on the amount of water you drink to try to manage your incontinence can lead to dehydration, kidney stones and can worsen your symptoms.
