1. Your Experience With Alcoholic Spirits, Beers and Wines

Patients have long reported that some, but not all, alcohols have bothered their bladders or prostates, triggering increased discomfort. With this survey, we hope to determine which types of alcoholic spirits, beers and wines are or are not irritating to the urinary tract with the hope of generating a list of more IC friendly alternatives.
