Interstitial Cystitis | Questions to Ask Your Doctor

  • How do my symptoms indicate interstitial cystitis, instead of another condition, such as an infection or urinary incontinence?
  • Do I need any tests to confirm a diagnosis of interstitial cystitis?
  • Will I need to see a specialist?
  • What are my treatment options? Which treatment is best for me?
  • How can I help manage my symptoms? Will diet changes, bladder training or physical therapy help?
