my daughte also suffers with IC. She has been eating mainly veggies with a tiny bit of protein for 4 months now and is really doing well. She finds fruit doesn't agree with her bladder either but can take some nuts and seeds. Sometimes she has a small piece of bread made from spelt flour-but no alcohol or caffeine drinks-just water. It's been a long haul but she is slowly regaining her health. There are far more days when she is painfree than not.
