Somewhat: To the extent that you substitute your cocktail for animal based food (like meat), it will lower your cholesterol.

Antibiotics: If doing all of the above fails, then antibiotics are warranted to prevent the infection from getting worse and spreading to the kidneys or blood stream. Untreated urinary tract infections can become very serious especially if the person has other medical conditions such as diabetes.

Agree with above; if you have active UTI need antibiotic treatment. If you are trying to prevent (prophylaxis) additional UTIs given a history of having recurrent UTI, but do not currently have a UTI, then cranberry pill extract (OTC) is worth a try or a low dose antibiotic (i.e. macrodantin) can be prescribed by your urologist after discussing the risks and benefits.

Consult your doctor: Any symptom that may be heart related needs to be checked out asap. Your lipid profile while not bad, is not good either, especially low HDL and high ldl. It would be imperative to assess the state of your heart and use a combination of diet, exercise and medication. Please see your doctor asap.
