9 Types of food that trigger Urinary Incontinence


Urinary incontinence in women often leads to a lack of confidence in living everyday lives. The initial treatment is to make behavioral changes along with restraining foods and drinks that contain substances that stimulate the bladder.   

Studies have shown that caffeinated drinks like coffee and tea stimulate frequent urination. Caffeine works as a diuretic, as it reduces water reabsorption when it passes to the kidneys, causes the kidneys to excrete a heavy amount of water. In addition to caffeine, here are 9 kinds of foods and drinks trigger frequent urination.

  • Tomato extracts or tomato-based products
  • Chocolate
  • Citric acid fruits
  • Cranberry 
  • Alcoholic drinks
  • Carbonated drinks
  • Spicy foods 
  • Dessert or sugary foods

If consuming these types of foods and drinks trigger your bladder and result in urinary incontinence, it is recommended to stop the consumption immediately. And if the symptom persists, you should seek medical advice for diagnosis and receive proper treatment.
