Description

In a small study of patients with recurrent bladder infections conducted by urologist Dr. Michael Blue (OK), 71% of patients reported an improvement in their symptoms while using D-Mannose. Of the 18 women who had been diagnosed with painful bladder syndrome, 94% reported symptom improvement.

I've been a D-Mannose critic ever since another company had the audacity to suggest that it could be used to prevent interstitial cystitis. I still believe that's hogwash, particularly for patients who may have a genetic predisposition for IC. The study I cited above does suggest, however, that some painful bladder syndrome patients found it helpful. I'd like to see a larger, more credible study that proves that it helps with PBS/IC symptoms. However, I believe that D-Mannose IS a viable option for patients struggling with recurring diagnosed UTI's, particularly those that are E-coli based. - Jill
