Does anyone know anything about this? I’d never heard of it until yesterday, but it’s being touted as this great new thing for treating UTIs. I am plagued with recurring UTIs and am almost ready to try anything at this point. I do have an appointment with a urologist next week to investigate physical causes, but I’m also looking into what else I can be doing for this problem. I already drink lots of water, urinate after sex, wipe front to back, all of that and none of it helps. Cranberry and Cystex do help, but I’d like to be able to do more about this problem.
According to this site D-Mannose works in much the same way as cranberry, by preventing the bacteria from sticking to the bladder lining, but since they’re selling the stuff, I’m inclined to be a little skeptical. I also found posts on health-related message boards saying that it’s great stuff and works wonders, but I want more information. Anyone?
