It is also known as Nocturia when you have an overactive bladder at night. It is a condition in which you have to urinate in the middle of the night. Causing factors such as excessive fluid intake, sleep issues, or a blocked bladder have all been identified. In order to treat nocturia, certain actions such as fluid restriction and medications that alleviate the symptoms of an overactive bladder are employed.
As a result of these research, it is believed that your diet plays an important role in this; that is, some foods may cause your bladder to become more agitated and irritable. While there is no specific diet for an overactive bladder, avoiding and restricting certain foods can help with management and control of the condition. Let's have a look at some of the foods you should eat and avoid if you have an overactive bladder problem.
When it comes to eating at night, there are a few foods to consider if you want to avoid frequent urination.
Due to the high potassium and fiber content of bananas, they are particularly good to the urinary tract.
Cashews, almonds, and peanuts are excellent foods to include in your diet if you have an overactive bladder.
3. Cucumber is a vegetable that is commonly used in salads.
Cucumber, which is high in antioxidants, fiber, and vitamin K, is a good choice for people who have an overactive bladder because of its high content of these nutrients.
Eggs are another wonderful source of protein that will not irritate your bladder when consumed in moderation.
Because they contain a significant amount of fiber, they should be ingested on a regular basis. They include a high concentration of polyphenols, which are helpful to your general health.
Note: Consuming these foods will not cure or manage overactive bladder, but they will assist in reducing the frequency with which urine is produced.
If you have an overactive bladder, there are certain foods you should avoid.
1. Tea and coffee are available.
Caffeine is present in high concentrations in these beverages, which can increase bladder activity and exacerbate overactive bladder symptoms such as increased urination urgency and frequency, as well as incontinence.
2. Fruits of the Citrus genus.
Citrus fruits, such as oranges, limes, and lemons, have been shown to significantly worsen overactive bladder symptoms. A lot of citric acid is found in citrus fruits in general, which might make bladder control difficult to maintain. If you want to avoid urinary tract discomfort, you should stay away from fruits like grapefruit and pineapple, among others.
Tomatoes, which have a high concentration of acidic acid, have been shown to irritate the bladder and increase the symptoms of overactive bladder. Extremely sensitive individuals should avoid any tomato-based items, such as pasta and pizza sauce, at all costs.
4. Soda is a beverage.
Symptoms of overactive bladder may be exacerbated by any carbonated beverage, including soft drinks, soda water, and energy drinks, among others. Because of the excessive amount of sugar in these fizzy drinks, you may find yourself visiting the restroom frequently.
5. The consumption of alcoholic beverages.
Beer, wine, champagne, and liquor, as well as other alcoholic beverages, might irritate the bladder, leading you to discharge urine more frequently. Other foods that should be avoided at night include;
• Foods that have been processed.
• Artificial sweeteners.
• Foods that are high in sodium.
