Answer

Patients may be instructed to fill out a food diary, recording the relationship between the consumption of various food and drink items and their interstitial cystitis symptoms. In this manner, items that provoke or exacerbate the interstitial cystitis symptom complex can be eliminated from the diet in a methodical fashion.
