Patients Have Been Frustrated With Recurring UTIs

The staff at Understanding UTIs talk to hundreds of people with UTIs every day. People often cannot understand why their infections keep coming back after antibiotic treatment.

Many ask about a new natural supplement called D-Mannose. They’ve heard it relieves UTI symptoms quickly and prevents recurrences. They also wonder why their doctors are not discussing it.

D-Mannose, a natural powder extracted from fruits, clears and protects against recurring urinary tract infections. It works by blocking bacterial adhesion to urothelial cells in the bladder lining.

Watch this video to get a quick overview of how it works.

It is most effective with two frequent types of bacteria: E. Coli and Klebsiella pneumoniae. These together represent over 80% of all UTIs.

Doctors Have Been Just As Frustrated

Doctors feel just as frustrated because the antibiotics they prescribe are no longer as effective as they once were. As a result, patients return to their offices within a month after antibiotic treatment, complaining of UTI symptoms.

This recent trend, known as “antibiotic resistance,” has raised alarm bells at the CDC. They consider it the next health crisis in the U.S.

Most doctors hesitate to recommend a natural supplement like D-Mannose. They worry about replacing antibiotics for a condition as serious as a urinary tract infection. However, based on the article below, they now agree that there is sufficient medical and scientific evidence to add D-Mannose to their patients’ treatment regimens.

Now There’s Definitive Clinical Proof Supporting The Use of D-Mannose

The March 2022 issue of Antibiotics magazine featured an article entitled “Why D-Mannose May Be As Efficient as Antibiotics in the Treatment of Acute Uncomplicated Lower Urinary Tract Infections.”

This was the key finding:

“Our post hoc analysis shows that patients using D-mannose as monotherapy in AUC (acute uncomplicated cystitis) achieved very good clinical cure rates, similar to those achieved by patients receiving antibiotic treatments. Furthermore, symptom relief after 3 days of treatment was also comparable between D-mannose monotherapy and antibiotics.”

Talk To Your Doctor About D-Mannose

Doctors now recommend D-Mannose as a “companion” to antibiotics. Taken together, they are twice as powerful as antibiotics alone. Therefore, the infection clears up faster and protection lasts longer.

The primary benefit of D-Mannose is that it is safe to take every day to prevent new UTIs. Unlike antibiotics, which cannot be prescribed for the long term due to deleterious side effects.

When asking your doctor for a brand recommendation, specify that you are looking for 100% pure D-Mannose (no additives) in powder form (not capsules).
