Eating Correctly and Incontinence
Bladder Friendly Recipes and Food Tips for Managing Overactive Bladders
If you experience incontinence, what you eat and drink can play a big factor in the severity of your symptoms. There is no set diet for incontinence that will allevate an overactive bladder, but what you eat or drink and how much can have an impact on the level of control you have over your bladder. With some helpful food tips for those with an overactive bladder, what to eat and drink can reduce the urge to urinate, promote a healthy bladder and kidneys, and improve control of your pelvic muscles.
Food Tips to Maintain Bladder Health
Benefits of Fiber
Fiber helps regulate digestion and alleviate constipation, which can be uncomfortable for those with overactive bladders. With a properly balanced diet, you can minimalize the pressure on your bladder and help improve bladder control.
Caffeine and Alternatives
You may not know, but your morning cup of coffee is not only a diuretic but a bladder irritant. There's plenty of ways to get your morning or afternoon boost. Try some delicious alternatives to drinks with caffeine and reduce your urge to urinate.
