Urge Incontinence: Tips for Daily Life
OAB and Your Diet
In addition to cutting down or eliminating alcohol and caffeine drinks, limiting other foods or beverages may help OAB. Try cutting back on:
- Acidic foods and beverages, such as tomatoes, pineapple, and citrus fruits such as oranges, grapefruit, lemons, and limes
- Salty foods, which can make you thirstier and hence, lead to drinking more liquids
- Spicy foods, such as chilies, which can irritate the bladder
- Carbonated beverages, such as sodas or seltzers
Though urge incontinence is uncomfortable, it's also very treatable. Changes in your lifestyle and habits can play a part in treating it.
