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
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

I had a very bad reaction to last antibiotic for UTI. Trying d-mannose instead this time. How much should I take a day to rid? 12hrs, no relief yet.
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

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

Bactrim (sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim) good: You have a bladder infection. Bactrim (sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim) is a good antibiotic for this. You will take Bactrim (sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim) for a short duration. It should be ok. You have B12 deficiency.

Diet pills: Anyone that is on Coumadin (warfarin) need to be aware of the drug drug interactions that occur and you will need to discuss with you doc and have the inr measured more frequently at the beginning.

I was recently diagnosed with two tiny pe. I have to have a colonscopy in 21 days. Is it ok to stay on Coumadin (warfarin) and be put under with the pes?
No: You can't undergo a colonoscopy while on warfarin due to risk of bleeding, you can't even be on aspirin. Talk with your gastroenterologist. Pulmonary emboli are very serious. You would have to stop the warfarin before the procedure (not advisable) or postpone the procedure, or your GI doc may choose another way to examine your colon (such as ct scan), depending on why you need the colonoscopy. ...Read more
Takn Coumadin (warfarin) hvn't ben able 2eat much lately&have los 8+lbs n 2wks I don't know y. But got INR checked 2day & it was 6.1y? Is this dangerous menstrualonalso
Go see your doctor..: Now! You didn't explain why you're taking Coumadin (warfarin) but we typically aim for inr 2-3 if for blood clot or atrial fibrillation or clotting disorder. We aim for 2.5-3.5 if you have mechanical valve. Inr of 6.1 is way too high. Your Coumadin (warfarin) dose needs to be held/adjusted & inr monitored closely until back into therapeutic range. 8 lb weight loss in 2wks is not normal either. Go see your doctor now! ...Read more
Varies: I love dr. Klein's answer: "the dose that works." he is absolutely right. Certain south-east Asian populations have the genetics he mentioned that makes them require higher doses of Coumadin (warfarin) than others the same weight. Generally, smaller people need less than larger, too, but not always. Diet has a lot to do with dosage need. ...Read more
