Answer

Various dietary measures have been examined as therapy for interstitial cystitis. [62] These dietary measures and the previously mentioned behavioral measures can be effective when used alone, but they can also be complementary to virtually all other interventions for interstitial cystitis. Some studies have reported that up to 90% of patients reported symptom exacerbations linked to food, beverage, and dietary supplements. [63]
