So pardon for the TMI but lately I've been having bladder issues. I've been to two doctors and been tested twice for UTI and I'm clean. However, the second doctor tested my urine PH and I'm as acidic as the chart goes. I'm baffled by this because I eat a ton of produce, drink a lot of white tea and herbal teas and water plus generally a shot of apple cider vinegar. I do eat animal products (meat, eggs, a little cheese), other than cheese I do not consume dairy, and have one cup of coffee per day. I haven't had any alcohol this week, and no sweets and no processed foods. Overall I would estimate my diet to be quite healthy and well balanced on meat, vegetables and a little fruit. Outside of diet, what would impact my body's acidity/alkalinity? My doctor is having me start taking baking soda today to try and bring my body back to a neutral pH. I had a full blood panel done but the results of that won't be back for a day or two. My doc is thinking that acidity of my urine is causing my bladder irritation, but she doesn't know what is causing my urine to be so acidic. Ideas?
No announcement yet.
I'm super acidic- WHY?
