|BLADDER INFECTION IN MEN
Dmannose: The fast, effective and natural solution for Bladder infection!
Although we often associate bladder infection with females, men can also suffer the painful symptoms of this very annoying condition.
These infections are much more common in girls and women than in boys and men younger than 50 years of age. The reason for this is not well understood, but anatomic differences between the genders (a shorter urethra in women) might be partially responsible.
Bladder infections become more common in older men. About 3 in 100 men in their 60s, and about 1 in 10 men in their 80s, will have a bladder infection.
About 40% of women and 12% of men have a urinary tract infection at some time in their life.
||My daughter introduced me to DMannose. This product was easy to consume and I was amazed how quickly it had an effect. I experienced no side effects, the traces of blood in my urine disappeared and I could say with confidence that my bladder infection is under control.

What is bladder infection?
Bladder infections involve the parts of the body -- the kidneys, ureters, bladder and urethra -- that produce urine and carry it out of the body. Urinary tract infections often are classified into two types based on their location in the urinary tract:
- Lower tract infections.
These include cystitis (bladder infection) and uretritis (infection of the urethra). Lower urinary tract infections commonly are caused by intestinal bacteria, which enter and contaminate the urinary tract from below, usually by spreading from the skin to the urethra and then to the bladder. Uretritis also may be caused by microorganisms that are transmitted through sexual contact, including gonorrhoea and Chlamydia. Another form of male urinary infection is prostatitis, which is an inflammation of the prostate.
- Upper tract infections.
These involve the ureters and kidneys and include pyelonephritis (kidney infection). Upper tract infections often occur because bacteria have travelled upward in the urinary tract from the bladder to the kidney or because bacteria carried in the bloodstream have collected in the kidney.

What causes bladder infection?
Most urine infections are caused by bacteria (germs) that come from your own bowel. They cause no harm in your bowel, but can cause infection if they get into other parts of your body. Some bacteria lie around your anus (back passage) after you pass a stool (faeces). These bacteria sometimes travel to your urethra and into your bladder. Some bacteria thrive in urine and multiply quickly to cause infection.
Why do some men get bladder infection?
In many cases the infection occurs for no apparent reason. There is no problem with the bladder, kidney, prostate, or defense (immune) system that can be identified. In some cases, an underlying problem can increase the risk of developing a urine infection. These include the following:
In men older than 50, the prostate gland (a gland near the bottom of the bladder, close to the urethra) can enlarge and block the flow of urine from the bladder. This condition is known as benign prostatic hyperplasia, or BPH. This condition can prevent the bladder from emptying completely, which increases the likelihood that bacteria will grow and trigger an infection.
- An enlarged prostate may stop the bladder from emptying properly. Some urine may then pool in the bladder. Bacteria are more likely to multiply and cause infection in a stagnant pool of urine.
- Bladder or kidney problems may lead to infections being more likely. For example, kidney stones or conditions that cause urine to pool and not drain properly. This includes having a urinary catheter.
- A poor immune system increases the risk of having any infection, including urine infections. For example, if you have AIDS or are taking chemotherapy.
Other factors that increase the risk of urinary infections include an obstruction, such as that caused by a partial blockage of the urethra known as a stricture, and non-natural substances, such as rubber catheter tubes (as may be inserted to relieve a blockage in the urethra).
A urinary tract infection usually causes one or more of the following symptoms:
- Unusually frequent urination.
- An intense urge to urinate.
- Pain, discomfort or a burning sensation during urination.
- Awakening from sleep to pass urine.
- Pain, pressure or tenderness in the area of the bladder (in the middle of the abdomen, below the navel).
- Bedwetting in a person who usually had been dry at night.
- Urine that looks cloudy or smells foul.
- Fever, with or without chills.
- Nausea and vomiting.
- Pain in the side or upper back
What is DMannose?
DMannose has been used in Europe, America and the rest f the world for years and years. It’s simple to use and provides relief within hours. Best of all is that Dmannose is 100% natural and can even be used by pregnant women and children.
When someone with UTI consumes a dose of DMannose, the sugar is absorbed in the upper gastrointestinal tract. Additionally, unlike other sugars, DMannose is not readily converted to glycogen (and stored) in the liver, but passes directly into the bloodstream largely unchanged.
DMannose does not kill any bacteria – friendly or unfriendly. Instead, it acts as a kind of magnet in the urinary tract, adhering itself to undesirable foreign substances such as E.coli bacteria and preventing them from attaching to the lining of the bladder.
As the DMannose-laden blood passes through the kidneys, a considerable proportion of the sugar is extracted and added to the urine. The DMannose-sweetened urine flows from the kidneys through the ureters to the bladder and on to the urethra, literally sugar-coating any free-floating E.coli it might encounter and preventing them from attaching to any cells. It also dislodges any bacteria which already attached to the inner surface of the bladder and urinary tract, ultimately flushing them all down the toilet.
||D-Mannose has changed my life. I've had at least one UTI per month for years. Antibiotics did me in and exacerbated my constant yeast problem. Cranberry juice (pure only) worked well in a day or two, but was nasty and nauseated me. I started teaching this year and my inability to leave the classroom to use the bathroom has made the situation out of control. I've had almost constant low-grade fevers, very little energy, and irritation and pain. In desperation I decided to try D-Mannose. It's been two months now and I've had no burning, no irritation, no cramps, no blood in my urine, no discharge. I finally feel like my pelvic region is healthy and I don't have to dread every trip to the bathroom anymore. I started with two tsp per day for 3 weeks, then dropped back to one teaspoon per day. I think a half would be fine now. I take it first thing in the morning, on an empty stomach so it can go straight to my bladder. It has just a slightly sweet taste, so it's great in water, but I'm sure you could put it in anything without noticing it.
