Cure UTI? Cranberry, d-mannose, uva ursi, grapefruit seed, caprylic acid, potassium caprylate, olive leaf extract, marshmallow althea officinalis root, red rasperry rubus ideaus - are these safe?
Here are some...: D-mannose is like a sugar and is used to treat carbohydrate-deficient glycoprotein syndrome - an inherited metabolic disorder. Urologically, it is thought to improve the integrity of bladder mucosa so to prevent bacteris sticking to bladder lining leading to lessen recurrent UTI, but its real effect for such has not been well verified. So, talk with doc why d-mannose is used for you. ...Read more
Here are some...: D mannose is a kind of sugar as an important molecule to make bladder mucosa less sticky for bacteria so to minimize persistent or recurrent bacterial UTI. Though some studies said so, it is still not 100%. Will it help in this aspect? Maybe at best. The mainstay of bacterial UTI is still effective antibiotics + an emptying bladder + behavioral modification + occasionally long-term prophylactics. ...Read more

I took D-mannose for 2 days but I think I took too much. Felt discomfort and dull pain in kidneys. Feel better now. Did this harm my kidneys permanent?
No: D-mannose is a type of sugar found in a number of fruits and available in dietary supplement form. Though typically touted as a natural remedy for E. coli UTIs, there is currently a lack of clinical trials testing the use of D-mannose supplements against UTIs. Possible side effects: bloating and diarrhea. Many web sites report possible kidney damage in high doses, but basis of this is unfounded. ...Read more

Depends. . .: If you ask enough people, eventually you'll get the answer you want to hear. With that said, there's a big leap to take from theory to animal studies to humans. So while many new drugs are expensive, it takes a lot of research to get them approved. Check out http://www. Med. Nyu. Edu/content? ChunkIID=225997 which points this out. Then check out http://www. Ncbi. Nlm. Nih. Gov/pubmed/23633128. Maybe!!!! ...Read more

My 2.5 year old daughter has UTI infection. In addition to the antibiotics can I give her the d-mannose powder supplement mixed in water?
Not effective...: D-mannose, a type of sugar, has become a popular alternative treatment for preventing and treating urinary tract infections. Unfortunately, nearly all the evidence on the effectiveness of d-mannose is anecdotal, without clinical studies to back it up. It probably won't hurt to give it; just make sure to give her the antibiotics. ...Read more
Uti won't go away. Taken bactrim, then cipro, (ciprofloxacin) symptoms persist. Doc is doing urine culture. Do you think probiotic or d-mannose would help me?
May help, also try:
D-mannose is safe & effective for the 90% of uti's caused by e.Coli bacteria, so if you have a UTI caused by an e. Coli strain that is resistant to Bactrim & Cipro (ciprofloxacin) it will help.
It is wise to take probiotics to restore normal GI flora during & after taking antibiotics but it will not help your uti. You can try herbs like uva ursi & andrographis while awaiting culture results. ...Read more
Prescribed bactrim for bladder infection, had a bad reaction to cipro (ciprofloxacin) before. I do have a B12 deficiency. Pain is getting worse, I am taking d-mannose?
Bactrim (sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim) good: You have a bladder infection. Bactrim (sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim) is a good antibiotic for this.

Your duration for Bactrim (sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim) is short. ...Read more

If UTI is caused by ecoli can it go away without anti biotics. using cranberry, pro biotocs and mannose and botanicals?
Yes: This is possible followup with a urinalysis in one to two weeks to insure clearance of the infection. As long as your symptoms remain localized to bladder and urethra. If you have symptoms progressing to include pain in the flanks or develop fever this is indicative of a more serious infection and althout I like herbal treatments I would recommend antibiotics for this instance. ...Read more

I have mannose binding lectin deficiency - does this mean I am 'immunocompromised'? Is it safe to be around animals at a zoo?
Wash your hand: MBLD is a disorder of the "Complement" pathway of the immune system, which helps protect against certain types of bacteria (encapsulated). People with MBLD may be more susceptible to other germs as well. Talk to your doc about Pneumococcal and Meningococcal vaccines. As for the zoo, Salmonella is a particular risk. But enjoy the zoo--just wash hands and don't touch animals or stool! ...Read more
