How effective is cranberry (juice and/or supplements) at fighting off a UTI?
I have a neurogenic (paralysed) bladder which means I cannot pee normally and I have to use intermittent catheters six times a day. Of course no matter how scrupulous my hygeine practises, it seems inevitable that sooner or later if I stick foreign objects into my bladder on a regular basis, I will get a UTI eventually. I think I have the beginnings of one now, and it will be my fourth in 12 months. I really don’t want to go on antibiotics again because I am concerned about developing immunity, so I’m supplementing my diet with cranberry. Does anyone have any advice or experience? Does it really work?
