3/9/2010 Bladder Clinic features in “Prima” Magazine

Mr Almallah, Consultant Urologist, Birmingham and Solihull Bladder Clinic, featured briefly in the March edition of leading women’s magazine “Prima”.

Mr Almallah was asked for a specialist opinion on the quantity of fluid to drink to treat cystitis at home whilst waiting to see a doctor. You should normally drink 1-2 litres of water a day (including other drinks), with up to 1 litre over three to six hours if you feel the symptoms of cystitis starting. Drinking a lot more than your body needs to satisfy your thirst in a short space of time can be potentially dangerous.

“To treat cystitis, adding 1tsp of bicarbonate of soda to a cup of water three times a day (for 24 hours only) will help too”, says Mr Almallah. For further information also visit www.cobfoundation.org.
