Fluids

When you have bladder issues, you might feel less encouraged to drink a lot of water, because you feel that this increases your problem by having to urinate more often. On the contrary not drinking enough can make your symptoms worse. Instead you should time your intake as well as your bathroom visits to gain better control. Urine that is more concentrated from not drinking enough fluids may contribute to bladder irritability, bladder spasms and may contribute to the growth of bacteria in the urine.

Drinking lots of fluid can help flush out bacteria. Water is best option, but fruit juices can count for some of your fluid needs. Most people should try for 6-8-oz glasses of water per day (or 1.5 -2 liters) – unless your healthcare provider says otherwise.

Always check with your healthcare provider, as some medical conditions require fluid restrictions 

When you travel or participate in sports, you might feel like drinking less, because you are afraid of leaking urine or don’t want to catheterize at inappropriate times. But, drinking more fluids is even more important during these times. If you travel in hot climates or sweat during physical exercise you risk becoming dehydrated

Not drinking adequately can also result in constipation, which affects your general health and may also affect your bladder health.

If you have a urinary tract infection (UTI)

Increase the amount of water you drink when you have a UTI. Fluids perform two jobs: they help flush out bacteria from your bladder and they thin (dilute) your urine. It is less painful to pass diluted urine than concentrated urine, which is more irritating.

Avoid caffeinated drinks like coffee, tea or soda. Caffeine can irritate your bladder even more when you have a urinary tract infection.

What about cranberry juice?

You might have heard about the wonders of cranberry. Some people may benefit from drinking cranberry juice or taking cranberry extract tablets, but there is no clear proof of efficacy.

Always check with your healthcare provider first as cranberry (as well as other supplements) may have an adverse effect with certain medications.
