Other than constantly taking an antibiotic, are there supplements that could decrease and prevent UTI's?

      I did some research and find mixed results. I will confirm for sure with my urologist Friday my findings and pass along her replies. Thank you so much..

      D-Mannose is a great preventive supplement, it’s the enzyme found in cranberries but it’s a much more concentrated form. It’s a way better option than cranberry juice since cranberry juice is filled with sugar and the amount of the enzyme is next to none. I also take apple cider vinegar pills first thing every morning with a bunch of water before I eat anything else.

        @tropicberrysprite great advice! I just started the d-mannose, helps a great deal, can I take everyday or is this something that should be stopped after a couple of weeks, or should I say, is it safe long term?

          @CCC I believe it’s safe for long term, but I definitely recommend doing your own research to confirm. I’ve taken it for an extended period of time and never had any negative side effects. I take a lower dose on a daily basis and double or triple or when I have a uti or uti symptoms.

      I have used a supplement called D-Mannose to minimize pain, but the only thing that has helped so far (& I have been through periods of almost non-stop, back to back UTI’s 🤦🏼‍♀️), is a hormonal treatment: Estradiol (if you’re female). Oh! And best antibiotic ever used for UTI: Monural (1 dose - powder you mix with 3-4 Oz of water. Tastes like Tang [orange])

        @Lunas_Mom Thank you, my Urologist just introduced D-Mannise to me, I've just started taking it a few days now, so not sure how it's working thus far. I see her next werk for a cytology test, ugh and will go from there. I've been getting them for years and seem to be getting more frequent as I get older (60). So frustrating, so tired of them, I just want answers.

          @CCC seconding the estradiol recommendation. my uro recommends d-mannose, a cranberry supplement (but if you ever have symptoms after drinking cranberry juice you may want to avoid this), a daily 10bil cfu probiotic, and if you don't have daily bowel movements, to take metamucil; there's also a supplement called uqora that i've heard good things about but not tried myself, you might check their products out to see if they might be a good fit for you. aloe vera capsules might also help reduce the inflammation from the utis. good luck at your uro visit next week! and i hope the d-mannose starts helping soon, it seems to have helped me a lot
