I no longer have UTIs, and haven't had one for 6 years. I take D-Mannose Daily. D-Mannose is cheap and available over the counter. It has 0 side effects.
From NIH research paper: D-mannose powder had significantly reduced the risk of recurrent UTI which was no different than in Nitrofurantoin group,
Nitrofurantoin is Macrobid. The antibiotic for UTIs.
Here is the link:
I had ONE kidney infection, at age 65. TERRIFYING. I didn't know, tried to tough out 'the flu'. By the time I got to the ER I had e-coli in my bloodstream and was hours away from septicemia.
Before the kidney infection I had NEVER had a UTI, but afterwards UTIs were chronic. Each UTI terrified me that I would have another Kidney infection.
I know UTIs and Kidney infections can be more or less routine for some people. But they can lead to death.
