How My Baby Ended Up Taking D-Mannose To Prevent Her Recurrent UTIs

When Klebsiella bacteria with a colony count of greater than 100,000 was still detected in my baby's urine 1.5 months after her Ureteral Reimplantation surgery, I was devastated. Despite the 2 torturous surgeries that she had gone through recently and despite being told by our surgeon that the Ureteral Reimplantation was a success, there was still bacteria in her pee. It clearly showed that the bacteria in her body has now become resistant to the antibiotics that she is taking orally every night.

I was determined that I did not want my baby to go through another torturous surgery. I surfed the internet to read articles after articles on how to prevent UTIs. It was then that I stumbled upon a supposedly miracle cure called D-Mannose. I did a google search on D-Mannose (which is like a cousin of glucose) and what I read convinced me. I emailed the owner of a company in the UK that produces D-Mannose and asked if it was safe for toddlers to consume D-Mannose. The owner of that company replied me the following day and told me that D-Mannose is absolutely safe for babies. She also said something that I had least expected from her. She told me that she did not want to make a fortune out of my baby's misfortune and she was going to send me the D-Mannose for free, but I had to pay for the shipping charges. I quickly accepted her offer and paid for the shipping charges. Within a week, I received my D-Mannose, not 1 tub but 3 tubs! I was really grateful and thankful to her.

  1. I have the same question. How much for a ten month old? And how long do I give it to her for?
