Tips To Maintain Good Bladder Habits:
1. Maintain a good fluid intake. Depending on your body size and environment, drink 4-8 cups (8oz each) of fluid per day unless otherwise advised by your doctor. Not enough fluid creates a foul odor and dark colored urine.
2. Limit the amount of caffeine (coffee, soda, chocolate or tea) and citrus foods that you consume, as these foods can be associated with increased sensation of urinary urgency and frequency.
3. Limit the amount of alcohol you drink. Alcohol increases urine production and also makes it difficult for the brain to coordinate bladder control.
4. Avoid constipation by maintaining a balanced diet of dietary fibers.
Practice these habits and enjoy a healthy bladder!
