Women Are Finding Bladder Pain Relief In A Gluten-Free Diet

Women are experiencing bladder pain relief when they stop eating grains and foods made from them

Tuesday, September 28, 2021 - Women experience the first signs of pain from interstitial cystitis (IC) immediately after childbirth or surgery on the reproductive system. Doctors take the easy way out and prescribe Elmiron, the only drug available for the last two decades to treat the condition, only to have patients experience Elmiron vision loss. IC often begins as a bladder infection that doctors may treat with antibiotics. Taking Elmiron may or may not provide pain relief and patients are warned that they may have to take it for at least three months before it builds up in the blood and starts to work. An alternative therapy called Super Aloe Vera Capsules shows great promise for coating the lining of the bladder and relieving chronic bladder pain in about 90% of the patients that take it. Super Aloe Vera is 100% natural and should have full FDA approval within weeks. Another way to treat chronic bladder pain that you will never hear about from a mainstream doctor may be to stop eating grains and foods made from grains.

The Journal of Gluten Sensitivity writes that one woman who had no success with Elmiron found bladder pain relief by stopping eating grains at the recommendation of a holistic therapist. The woman was told by her doctor that Elmiron was the only treatment for her post-hysterectomy chronic bladder pain but experienced no relief. " I havenít been to a urologist in a few years. My original urologist moved away and when I mentioned to the next one that the only relief I found was a gluten-free diet, he didnít seem that interested. Other doctors I have seen didnít even know what gluten was and also seemed disinterested," according to Celiac.com

Women that have developed vision damage have filed or plan on filing Elmiron eye lawsuits against Janssen Pharmaceuticals and their parent company Johnson & Johnson for failing to warn them of Elmiron's eye damage side effect. They claim that having taken Elmiron (pentosan polysulfate sodium) daily for more than one year, as directed by both the company and the doctor prescribing the drug, caused them to develop pigmentary maculopathy, a form of night blindness due to dark spots forming on a part of the eye called the retina. The retina is the light-sensing area in the back of the eye and keeping it clean is essential to having clear vision. Dark spots on the retina will read as dark spots in one's vision when read by the brain. Janssen Pharmaceuticals now warns patients to avoid taking more than the prescribed amount of Elmiron every day. That warning came 20 years too late for thousands of women who did not know of the adverse side effects. According to Science Daily, around one out of four patients on Elmiron long-term developed Elmiron Eye Damage. The first jury trial could begin in January 2023, about a year after scientific experts have the opportunity to weigh their case before a federal judge. Ophthalmologists have thought for decades that maculopathy was age-related and offered no solutions. Retinal maculopathy is characterized as progressive and degenerative as is Elmiron vision damage which will continue to worsen even if the patient stops taking the drug.
