6 Foods to Avoid When You Have UTI

3.Caffeinated or Citrusy Sodas

Beverages_close_up_shotSodas in general have been found to cause bladder irritation in people with chronic bladder inflammation, and they could aggravate symptoms in someone with a UTI. In particular, citrus-flavored sodas (think your favorite lemon-lime concoction) and caffeinated sodas are the culprits when it comes to worsening urinary tract infection symptoms. So when you’re struggling to overcome a UTI, stick to water or cranberry juice as your drink of choice.

So try to avoid lemons, oranges, grapefruits, and tomatoes when you’re treating your UTI. Other fruits that may cause bladder irritation and worsen a urinary tract infection include apples, peaches, grapes, plums, strawberries, and pineapple. You should steer clear of juices made from these fruits.
