Hello ladies... my friend's mom was just recently diagnosed with IC and as we all know, she has LOTS of questions. One thing I was not able to answer for her is if she can take soy protein??? she says she takes this because she doesn't eat much meat at all. she's also a big vitamin supplement person... anyone out there that is familiar with reactions to soy protein and natural vitamin supplements??? thanks and God Bless

Yes, both soy and some vitamins can create problems for someone with an IC bladder. I can't have even the smallest amount of soy.
As far as vitamins are concerned, most IC patients cannot tolerate extra B vitamins or C. Some IC patients can tolerate Ester-C or non-acid Vitamin C, but that is individual.
I use whey protein powder to make shakes and smoothies. It is very good. :-)
