Bladder infection and D-mannose... has anyone tried this?
I have a bladder infection. It came on very suddenly and I am so incredibly uncomfortable! I left work and picked up some cranberry (100% cranberry, unsweetened) juice, lemon, and honey. I sweetened the juice with the honey and have been choking it down. I have been looking online and have seen some talk about the simple sugar D-mannose in powder form being used to treat uti and bladder infections. Has anyone tried this? Is takig the powder more effective than drinking this juice? (please say yes, lol) I really, really do not want to take antibiotics for this, but it is pretty unbearable! Any other suggestions? Thanks!
