Sugar and urethritis

 

I’ve avoided the discussion regarding diet and how it might effect urethritis. Mostly ’cause I’m so sick and tired of the fact that “everyone” seems to think that diet is the solution to everything from world peace to cancer. Also I don’t want to be a part of the body shaming going on, in any way. In general I find the war on carbs and sugar a “bit” exaggerated, just a bit.

Let’s establish that I do not believe that all evil comes from sugar. And also I am pretty convinced that different bodies react in different ways to different things. Also, sugar and candy in particular is yummy.

However, I want to share with you my recent experiences on how my urethritis react on sugar.

The relationship between my urethritis and sugar

During a few months, due to a number of reasons, I have kept a very strict diet due to a number of reasons. Sugar and carbs, my besties, have not been a part of my diet. At all. I know, poor me! During this time, I have made some exceptions. Staying away from sugar during holidays like Christmas and easter would just be… Let’s just not go there.

I truly wish this is where I could  tell you that sugar has no effect on my urethritis. However I can’t. I am sorry to inform you that with the sugar came my urethritis.

I firmly believe though that sugar is not the only reason that my urethritis was triggered during these events.

Keeping the routines

Even though my life as a startup founder sometimes seems to many to be far from normal, I have my routines. And when I’m not living my normal life, when on a trip, having a few days off and so on, all my routines fails.

Failing routines leads to me not drinking enough water and also in many cases failing to keep warm. Both are factors that triggers my urethritis.

With that said, I believe that sugar is not the only factor triggering my urethritis. However I can see that it in fact is triggering MY urethritis. Bummer, I love candy and my mother in-law makes the best cookies.
