Jill Osborne, ICN Founder D-Mannose is NOT an FDA approved therapy for IC nor active bladder infections but it might be helpful for those patients who struggle with repetitive, confirmed e-coli based bladder infections. D-Mannose is a simple sugar found in cranberry and pineapple juice. When consumed, D-Mannose is excreted into our urine through the kidneys where, if e-coli is present, it is believed to prevent this bacteria from attaching to the bladder wall.

CAUTION: D-Mannose does not kill bacteria, friendly or unfriendly. It is NOT a treatment for an active bladder infection. If you suspect that you have a bladder infection, please consult with your medical care provider for a urine culture! If you ignore these symptoms, a mild infection could become more severe and possibly result in a life threatening kidney infection.
