Urinary Tract Infection

There is no doubt that interstitial cystitis patients can develop the occasional bladder infection and, for an unlucky few, repeated infections that are routinely cultured out for e-coli and other nasty bacteria. Having a UTI on top of a bladder already struggling with IC can create extreme discomfort and pain.

What are we to do?? Since IC patients can't use cranberry juice because of its harsh effects to the bladder, D-Mannose is a more bladder friendly option. D-Mannose is the active ingredient in cranberry and blueberry that helps reduce the ability of e-coli to cling to the bladder wall. A simple sugar, it is one of the easiest strategies that a patient can try.

We've had several positive reports from patients who used the Very Private Body Wash to help reduce infection after sexual intercourse as well! Don't forget to use an acidophilous product if you are taking antibiotics for a UTI to help prevent possible yeast infections!
