Bladder Infections and D-Mannose

My wife once had UTI, which can be brought about through Cystitis. She was really in pain. What she was feeling was having a hard time urinating and she always had to urinate often which was always painful. With this kind of feeling she started to have a high fever as well and was getting the chills because of the pain in the pelvic area.

Although there are several types of Cystitis, the most common cause is by the bacteria Escherichia coli, commonly known as E. Coli, that when found in the lower gastrointestinal tract, this is where the Cystitis problem starts. Treatment always recommends doctor attention and in most cases of bacterial infection, an antibiotic is prescribed. Although there has been several side effects known with the use of antibiotics, there are some recommended alternatives such as D-Mannose.

There is natural and synthetic D-Mannose and D-Mannose can be naturally found with simple sugar since this is a stereoisomer of Glucose and can be found in small quantities in fruits like cranberries. Although our bodies had D-Mannose, this is abundantly excreted into urine. This is know to work well with bladder infections such as Cystitis, as this can flush out E.Coli. If I have know this when my wife had UTI, I would have recommended this treatment to augment her antibiotic medication. It’s safe and has no known side-effects. And D-Mannose can easily be purchased online.

Disclaimer: I am no doctor and if ever you have Cystitis, UTI or any type of bladder infection, don’t just listen to my advice and take D-Mannose. Consult your doctor and seek their advice.

  1. Do you know where to get synthetic D-mannose? I have severe food
    intolerances and all the D-mannose I’ve seen is made from various plants all
    of which I have intolerances to. Even the birch-source D-mannose makes me
    sick.
