I read online that D- Mannose can be taken safely to treat and prevent a UTI. Is this a safe alternative/ Based on my over 100,000 bacteria count and flank pain, is it safe to possibly try this over Cipro. I do want to note that I suffer from a heart arrythmia, so I want to make sure that this route will not cause any life threatning issues with my heart condition either...thank you!

Most of the sites that promote this are also selling the product; something to beware of.

It's important to distinguish between using a product to PREVENT a medical issue and CURE a medical issue. For example, cranberry products may have a protectant value against UTI's but are totally useless in curing one once you have this.
