Did you know some beverages can be affecting your urine loss? Unfortunately some of our favorite drinks can also be irritable to our  bladder, causing you to suffer further from urine loss. If you are experiencing urine leaks try eliminating or cutting down on some of these beverages from your daily life and check if it makes a difference. 

Here are some everyday drinks to avoid for an overactive bladder:

1. Coffee or Black Tea

For all those coffee and tea lovers out there, caffeine can be having an impact on your bladder. Often many women don’t realize the amount of caffeine they are drinking. It starts with that innocent first coffee of the morning with your breakfast. Followed by another just as you get to work, with your colleagues. Followed by another just before the lunch break. And so the day goes on! And so the caffeine adds up throughout the day. A diuretic, it can be dehydrating and stimulate you to go to the toilet. Why not replace it instead with a simple refreshing glass of water? Try challenging yourself for a few days (or weeks) by avoiding caffeine. Find further info here.

2. Beer (and other alcoholic beverages)

Alongside caffeine, another beverage to keep at bay is alcohol, such as beer, wine and others. Alcohol can also act as a diuretic (increasing the production of urine) and bladder irritant leading you to visit the bathroom more often. Read more about it here.

3. Carbonated drinks (soft drinks, soda water)

Keep an eye on your intake of soft drink beverages, as these can be another stimulant to your bladder due to their caffeine and carbonation. This can make you urinate more often, so make sure to avoid and to drink plenty of water to keep hydrated.

4. Citrus juices

Due to their acidity, citrus juices made from grapefruits, orange, lemon are also best avoided as they too can irritate the bladder. If you must drink, try mixing together with water. 

For some women it can be difficult to remember how many times a day they consume some of the drinks above. For help, you can always download the Carin App on Google Play or the Apple store. 

Challenge yourself to eliminate or cut down on some of these beverages from your daily life. We hope it makes a difference for you and helps you regain your bladder control again. If you need help, Carin is here to help. ;)
