Dietary Modification

Dietary information is reviewed with all patients to assist in improving bowel and bladder function. Patients are provided with written informational handouts regarding foods that are high in fiber or foods that either stimulate or slow transit. Offering creative fiber alternatives that may be more appealing for the individual to easily incorporate in their daily diet regime assists with compliance. Such alternatives include unrefined wheat bran that can be easily mixed with a variety of foods, cereals, muffins, as well as over-the-counter bulking agents. Adequate fluid intake and limiting caffeine intake are essential for normal bowel and bladder function. It is essential to monitor the amounts and types of fluid intake. Urinary oxalates can be irritating to tissue; therefore, avoidance of oxalate-containing foods may improve irritative bladder and vulvar symptoms.
