Is d-mannose safe for early pregnancy?

Is d-mannose safe for early pregnancy?

It's unclear: To be honest there really isn't any significant evidence one way or the other. If you really want to be safe avoid it. Remember, especially with pregnancy, try to avoid taking anything you don't absolutely have to.

Pregnancy (Definition)

When your due date arrives, you will be more than ready to have your baby! Most women deliver the baby somewhere between 37 and 42 weeks. According to the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, only 5% of babies arrive on the exact due date.

Can you tell me about d mannose?

Can you tell me about d mannose?

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.

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.

Can d-mannose treat bladder infections?

Can d-mannose treat bladder infections?

No way: Bladder infections require antibiotics & not a dietary suppliment that does nothing to eliminate or kill bacteria.

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?

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.

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.

Not a good idea: D-Mannose works for some as UTI preventative by inhibiting attatchment of bacteria to bladder wall. There are plenty of different antibiotics to treat UTIs. Just avoid the one that caused such a bad reaction. Good Luck

Will d-Mannose and antibiotics help get rid of a strep uti?

Will d-Mannose and antibiotics help get rid of a strep uti?

Antibiotic only: The right antibiotic will do it. D-mannose is useless. Don't believe what you might read online or in health food stores. And even if it were to help prevent UTI (the main claim for the stuff), it certainly can't do anything for an infection you already have.

Is D. Mannose supplement for urinary health and UTI prevention safe/clinically proven effective?

Is D. Mannose supplement for urinary health and UTI prevention safe/clinically proven effective?

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!!!!

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?

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.

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?

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.

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. You will take Bactrim (sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim) for a short duration. It should be ok. You have B12 deficiency. Your duration for Bactrim (sulfamethoxazole and trimethoprim) is short.

No charcoal 4 kidney: I cannot find any studies to suggest that activated charcoal is helpful for chronic kidney disease. Please discuss any new medications with your doctors. Preferably before you take them. Hope that's helpful.
