Interstitial cystitis

Interstitial cystitis

This is a condition in both women and men but more in women.

Interstitial cystitis, also known as painful bladder syndrome, is a chronic condition that causes pain and discomfort in the bladder and pelvic region. There is no known cure for interstitial cystitis, but there are several treatment options available to manage the symptoms and improve quality of life.

At our urology hospital in Ahmedabad, we offer a comprehensive approach to treating interstitial cystitis, which may include a combination of the following:

  • Lifestyle modifications: Certain foods and beverages can exacerbate symptoms of interstitial cystitis, so making dietary changes such as avoiding caffeine and acidic foods may help to alleviate symptoms. Stress reduction techniques, such as meditation or yoga, may also be helpful.
  • Medications: A variety of medications may be used to manage symptoms of interstitial cystitis, including pain relievers, antihistamines, and bladder relaxants. In some cases, medications may be administered directly into the bladder.
  • Bladder distention: This procedure involves filling the bladder with fluid to stretch it, which may help to reduce symptoms in some patients.
  • Bladder instillation: This involves administering medications directly into the bladder to help reduce inflammation and relieve symptoms.
  • Botox injection: For refractory cases this is an extremely effective treatment that can give relief upto 6 months.
  • We also encourage our patients to use relaxation techniques and guide them about the same. We follow a holistic approach in treating Interstitial cystitis.
