IC Pain Association Offers Good Advice To Replace Elmiron

Eating a better diet may help to alleviate most cases of chronic bladder pain and other digestive disorders.

Friday, October 1, 2021 - A leading cause of Interstitial Cystitis (IC), a painful condition affecting millions of people, mostly women, is food sensitivity. The Interstitial Cystitis Association (ICA) offers advice on pertinent topics like the foods to avoid and diet that may alleviate bladder pain and lead to better health overall. Irritable bowel syndrome and constipation may accompany interstitial cystitis, according to ICHelp.org. Experts believe eliminating certain foods and adding other foods to a daily diet can significantly decrease the painful symptoms of digestive system problems. While ICs food triggers vary from person to person, some bad foods are common to everyone. The foods that trigger IC are similar to those that trigger heartburn and acid reflux. IC sufferers should avoid, "coffee (caffeinated and decaffeinated), tea (caffeinated and decaffeinated), soda, alcohol, citrus juices, and cranberry juice, foods, and beverages containing artificial sweeteners, hot peppers, and spicy foods." Increasing the fruits and vegetables and decreasing the amount of meat and dairy may also help fight obesity, reduce high blood pressure, and lead to generally better health. A surprising number of women experience bladder pain relief from eating gluten-free. One of the painful symptoms related to interstitial cystitis is having to frequently and painfully urinate. For the last 25 years, Janssen Pharmaceuticals and Johnson & Johnson have enjoyed a multi-million dollar monopoly on selling Elmiron to treat IC. Thousands of urologists have been quick to prescribe Elmiron as the only treatment on the market for interstitial cystitis better known as painful bladder syndrome. Elmiron eye lawsuits allege that taking the drug every day for many years has caused them to develop a form of night blindness called pigmentary maculopathy and suffer the inability to see clearly in less than optimal lighting conditions. Elmiron eye damage causes its victims to have difficulty driving at night and is permanent, degenerative, irreversible. Pigmentary maculopathy continues to increase after one stops taking Elmiron.

The results of a study conducted in 2016 indicate that taking Super Aloe Vera Capsules offers significantly more IC pain relief than taking Elmiron (pentosan polysulfate sodium), the only drug available for more than 20 years to treat IC bladder pain. Super Aloe Vera Capsules has not received final FDA approval but is recommended by holistic doctors. A definitive study of 100 volunteers with IC is underway by the FDA to study Super Aloe Vera`s potential. The FDA writes that the effort is "A Double-Blind, Placebo-Controlled Study to Establish the Safety and Efficacy of Super-Concentrated, Freeze." The FDA study results are expected in January 2023 along with an approval decision. PRNewswire reported that a 2016 study conducted by The Urology Wellness Center in Rockville, MD, and the ICA, reported, "symptom relief in 92% of patients, with 63% citing substantial improvement in urination urgency and frequency and nearly 70% achieving substantial improvements in pelvic pain and burning."
