The IC Optimist is the quarterly magazine written for our ICN patient and professional members. Our goal is to be encouraging and supportive, hence the title “The IC Optimist.” We are completely optimistic about the future. Research is very productive as we learn, each month, about new possible treatments. In our experience, most patients stabilize within the first six months and then slowly improve over time, dependent in great part on their dedication to following the IC diet and trying treatments. There are excellent self-help strategies that can dramatically improve your quality of life. There is no reason for any patient to feel shame or guilt. IC is real and treatable.
