Your Questions About Can I Drink Coffee With A Uti

Nancy asks…

Can you drink coffee with coffee whitener in it while taking ciprofloxacin for a UTI?

I can‘t take dairy anything or iron or antacids so is coffee whitener ok or does it count as dairy?

Hcg Diet answers:

Check the label on the whitener. It probably doesn’t contain milk or milk products. If it does, then you need to avoid it. Also avoid it if it has calcium, because calcium can interfere with or bind to and inactivate some antibiotics. Many whiteners or flavored ‘cream’ don’t actually have milk or cream in them, but are actually an oil and sugar mixture. Just read the ingredients.

James asks…

Is this a UTI or too much coffee?

The past couple of days I‘ve had the constant feeling of having to pee with very little coming out when I actually try to. This happens as soon as I start drinking my morning coffee. The thing is, I drink coffee everyday and this JUST started happening a couple of days ago. That makes me think it’s a UTI, but, on the other hand, as it gets later in the day, the urge to pee becomes MUCH less frequent and by the time I go to bed I‘m back to normal. It’s a Sunday and I can‘t see a doctor until tomorrow, but I‘m nervous b/c if this is a UTI, I want to start treating it immediately before it gets worse! Has anybody else who drinks coffee regularly had a problem like this?
Eww no, I haven’t done “A to V” and there’s no chance of me having an STD.
Can somebody please give me a serious answer?

Hcg Diet answers:

Believe it or not, coffee can cause those symptoms. At least it does in me. I found one particular brand (folgers) instantly causes me to have problems with my urinary tract and also digestive issues. Obviously, it could also be a UTI, but I would stop the coffee for a bit and then it the symptoms continue go see your doctor. Hope you feel better soon…good luck!

No pain… just the constant feeling of having to pee. I‘ve had several UTI‘s in the past and that is the major symptom I get, but it’s strange that it feels better at night

Hcg Diet answers:

Im only 10 and Ive had like, 10 in my whole life. If it were a UTI, it would burn like crazy when you go and you would feel like you had to pee all the time. Trust me, I’ve been there. It’s probably the coffee. That happens to my mom after a few cups.

William asks…

Can tap water from a specific town give you urinary problems?

I started a new job back in May in Waltham, MA and I‘ve been drinking the water, coffee, etc here since then. I‘ve been having VERY frequent UTI‘s but never connected the two until recently. I realized that my UTI sysmptoms are always fine when I‘m off a few days in a row, but then they start back up again once I start work. I drink coffee constantly (at home, Starbucks, etc) and never get these symptoms except when I drink the coffee at work. I figured I‘d just stop drinking it and buy some on my way to work. There’s a Dunkin Donuts down the road from my office that I‘ve gone to a couple of times and the same thing happens once I start drinking their coffee! Is there something wrong with me or the city of Waltham’s water supply??

Hcg Diet answers:

You should be able to get an annual water quality report from the municipal office in your town. Coffee is only as good as the water you make it with. It sounds like your coffee consumption is a little extreme so that in itself could cause related health problems. The town I live in says the water is safe to drink but I’ve seen the residue it leaves behind when distilled and it’s concerning. I no longer even give it to my cats because it leaves a crusty residue in their bowl. Fortunately I have a water station near by where I can purchase filtered water at a reasonable price and I also have a distiller, but it takes a long time (6 hrs) to make a gallon.
I would suggest eliminating any suspect sources and see if the condition clears up. Maybe buy some filtered water and take a thermos of coffee to work and also inquire if the water is filtered at any place you purchase coffee. Of course, if it doesn’t clear up you should consult a physician to check for other causes.
