Patients Have Been Frustrated With Recurring UTIs

The staff at Understanding UTIs are talking to hundreds of women and men with UTIs every day.  They tell us that they can’t understand why their infections keep coming back after antibiotic treatment.

They’re also asking about a new natural supplement called D-Mannose which they’ve heard relieves UTI symptoms quickly and prevents recurrences.  And they’re wondering why their doctor is not talking about it.

D-Mannose is a natural powder extracted from fruits that clears, and protects against, recurring urinary tract infections 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 of the most frequent types of bacteria: E. Coli and Klebsiella pneumoniae which together represent over 80% of all UTIs.


Doctors Have Been Just As Frustrated

Doctors are just as frustrated because the antibiotics that they’re prescribing are no longer as effective as they once were, so their patients are back in their offices again within a month after an antibiotic treatment complaining of UTI symptoms.

This recent trend is known as “antibiotics resistance” and the CDC is raising alarm bells about this being the next health crisis in the U.S.

Most doctors have been hesitant to recommend a natural supplement like D-Mannose as a replacement for antibiotics for a condition as potentially serious as urinary tract infection.

But, based on the article below, they now concur that there is sufficient medical and scientific evidence to add D-Mannose to their patients’ treatment regimen.

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

In the March 2022 issue of Antibiotics magazine there was 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

At this point, doctors are now recommending D-Mannose as a “companion” to antibiotics.  Taken together they are twice as powerful as antibiotics alone, so the infection will be cleared up faster and protection will last 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, be sure to specify that you are looking for 100% pure D-Mannose (no additives) in powder form (not capsules).
