    I find that when people present with intersitial cystitis it is usually a symptom of a Food Intolerance, and in almost all cases, removal of the intolerant food resolves the intersitial cystitis

    Hi Sharon. May I ask which foods cause the interstitial cystitis, or is it assessed from person to person? I have had a UTI for over 2 weeks and the antibiotics are not working. So I would assume it is either a strain that is immune to the antibiotic. However alot of the symptoms I have seem like interstitial cystitis. Can it be something that just happens suddenly. I am not sure which process to follow from here, if you could pls advise?

    It does need to be assessed individually, via a blood test, it can just happen suddenly as well, to rule out a food problem you need to be tested, if antibiotics have not stopped it it is not an infection.
