Well done 
try and leave it overnight as long as possible, you want to flush out the nasties, so the longer it is in bladder it cane do it s
work.

Enjoy and TRY and relax.

Good morning Kate I'm over the moon and feel fantastic D mannose has cured my UTI after I self cathed last night at 11pm I took D mannose for last time in the day went to bed got up at 6.30am this morning no smelling urine etc I'm so pleased I will keep up with the D mannose today and then as a preventive is it best to take a spoon full every night after I've self cathed before I get into bed ? I haven't taken my seven seas cranberry capsules while taking D mannose should I stop them permenatly now ? My girlfriend still has kefir milk once aday even though she is perfectly healthy can you take kefir while taking D mannose ??? Thankyou so much for your help ps Please note anyone reading this D mannose hasn't give me a bad stomach at all just abit of wind

Hi
Mod Susan replied with these two paragraphs previously.
"D Mannose .Its critical you take it at night so always take it just before bed. Try not to urinate immediately after taking it so that it can work through your system. It will prevent any of the coliform infection from attaching itself to the bladder lining and will flush them out with the stream of urine. After two days drop it down to 6-8 teaspoons and day and after a week a maintenance dose of 3-4 times a day.

You also need to look at your diet whilst you have these infections. Sugar will feed the bacteria so try to go low sugar (and that includes fruit) as long as you can. Cut back on caffeine and fizzy drinks and avoid alcohol (again for the high sugar content). Don't even think about fruit juices or the dreaded Cranberry Juice as its extremely acidic and full of sugar. Its really dull but by starving the sugar out of your system you are starving the infection leaving it very little to feed on"    .Re Tablets am not sure...

As I have mentioned before, try not to overload with several different remedies at the same time. Better to, if you find your bladder is responding well to take one thing at a time then stick with that. Then gradually introduce other, when you feel more settled or need more assistance..

Hope someone else may have, suggestions for you.

Morning Holiday

as I understand white blood cells could be inflammation/infection of the bladder.
The D mannose should help in flushing these out.

What did practice nurse suggest,?

re baking soda whilst very helpful be cautious, especially if taking other medication.

Also have a read through this link

Enjoy Easter day if you can.
Kate

Kate Thankyou for your reply I haven't actually bought the baking soda and raw apple cider vinegar yet was getting it tomorrow when shops open !! Do you think it's worth buying to keep in the cupboard ??? The D mannose is working for me so is it best to stick with that as a preventive everyday ? The practise nurse said D mannose works for some people and is a food supplement ! I've stopped taking my seven seas cranberry capsules I took 4 aday but they didn't prevent UTIS with me !

Sorry for delay but was hoping someone else might give some info.

Personally if you are finding D Mannose is working then do not overload by adding unnecessary remedies.

As far as I am aware the Bicarb and Apple cider vinegar help in attaining alkaline in the bladder. However do be careful if you have blood pressure or kidney probs.

Ideally one needs to know what bacteria we have as D Mannose will only assist when E Coli is cause of infection.

We have to try and find a regime as near to untreated as possible, then we have a chance of using known remedies to clear a particular flare or infection.

So your Q should you buy? , is really, will that work for you? if so then always handy to have in cupboard.

Have you spoken with our nutrition at BHUK as  they really do have much information to assist.

Also when I asked what did the Nurse say, I wondered if she told you the infection re the white cells. not her views on D Mannose.

Doh! I always wonder why they don't explain their comments, would save having to worry and research.

Hope you are still feeling benefit of the D mannose.

Thankyou for the reply young Kate I'm keeping with the D mannose and I've started kefir again last week and yesterday my girlfriend found sea salt in her cupboard so will keep that in reserve ! As I said 3 tea spoons of D mannose a day should be a good preventive of UTIS and it's being monitored in my diary !! I'm taking D mannose after catherted on empty bladder that's the best isn't it cheers Mike
