    Hi McDuff,

    Since it's been a while since your post, have your realized any changes with the recommended treatment(s)?

    As a two decade long indwelling catheter user, I started experiencing frequent infections with plugged catheters, as often as monthly, a couple years back. Upon my doc's and, more so, NP's advice I started D-Mannose, TheraCran capsules and irrigating with diluted sterile vinegar solution (made at home) twice a day and a compound (Rx) of Gentamicin in the p.m. 3 evenings per week. Since I have started this regime my UTI's have occurred once to twice per year and the need for antibiotics has been minimal.

    As each individual is different and experiences different conditions, I still hope this may offer some yet unexplored option(s) for you. I wish you the best.

    This is about UTIs in AB people without a neurogenic bladder. Their urine should be sterile; colonization is not a normal finding. Any positive culture of >10,000/ml. is considered a UTI in someone like this. Totally different criteria, and management from someone with a neurogenic bladder.
