Mesh Medical Device News Desk, January 22, 2018 ~ D-Mannose is a simple sugar that has an ability to prevent bacterial infections in the urinary tract system in both men and women.
Many women with transvaginal mesh develop urinary track infections (UTIs) and in some, the condition becomes chronic.
Mesh News Desk has partnered with Superior Labs to offer you a discounted, high quality D-Mannose. See the link here.
UTIs and D-Mannose - A Simple Sugar Treatment for UTIs
Urinary tract infections (UTI) are responsible for 10 million doctor's office visits a year, according to the National Kidney Foundation.
Symptoms include burning urination and a low output of urine. E. coli is the primary bacteria that causes 90 percent of infections.
The National Kidney and Urologic Diseases Information Clearinghouse says bladder infections are the most common type of UTI.
The bacteria comes from the bowel and the bladder, ureters, and urethra can all become infected. While most UTI's stay in the bladder, if it is not treated promptly, the bacteria can travel to the kidneys causing pyelonephritis, an actual infection of the kidney. This is more serious and may appear as back pain and fever.
In men, an enlarged prostate that restricts normal urine flow can result in a bladder infection.
Preventing a UTI is better than treating one because it takes far less effort to treat says Dr. Joseph Mercola, an online alternative medicine MD. Drink plenty of water, says Dr. Mercola, so urine is a light color, unless you are taking some supplements that might leave your urine a deeper color.
To prevent UTIs, don’t hold your urine, use a bidet if possible, and wipe from front to back. Cleanse after intercourse.
Dr. Mercola says avoid antibiotic treatment because it kills good and bad bacteria. Fermented foods also help deliver good bacteria to the gut.

D-Mannose – A Simple Sugar
D-Mannose is a simple sugar.
It is related to glucose and is found naturally in foods such as peaches, oranges, apples, blueberries and cranberries. Even though it’s a sugar, D-Mannose does not reportedly interfere with blood sugar regulation so it does not present a problem for diabetics because very little of it is metabolized.
E. coli bacteria is the primary bacteria that causes 90 percent of infections.
Clinical trials from Europe show D-Mannose can be used to treat and prevent urinary tract infection as it appears to stop the E. coli bacteria from sticking to the bladder walls. Instead, it sticks to the sugar. Then the bacteria leaves the body through your urine.
D-Mannose can be used for a few days or long term use.
In one study of more than 300 women, D-Mannose worked as well as antibiotics to prevent recurring UTIs with fewer side effects.
The British Journal of Urology on the use of D-Mannose in recurrent urinary tract infections (UTIs) in women defines recurrent UTIs as at least two UTIs in every six months or three in one year. This clinical trial involved 308 women for up to 18 years. Women were divided into two groups, some treated with D-Mannose, some with antibiotics.
In one clinical trial the group treated with D-Mannose had a 15% recurrence of UTIs versus the group who did not receive it who had a 60% recurrence of UTIs.
D-Mannose is also used as a probiotic stimulating good bacteria in your digestive system.
