Recurrent E. coli urinary tract infections pose a problem. These infections can be treated successfully with antibiotics, but in this era of antibiotic resistance, recurrent urinary tract infections increase the risk for germ-resistant infections.
While cranberry juice has been shown to be somewhat effective, D-mannose, a poorly metabolized sugar that is available as a dietary supplement has now been shown to successfully treat urinary tract infections in a superior manner to a commonly-used antibiotic. Dosage used as 2 grams (2000 milligrams) of D-mannose powder in water. D-mannose is widely available as a dietary supplement. Source: World Journal Urology.
