Recurring bladder Infections: What can I do?

Thank you Rosemary. I also have glumerulonephritis, a chronic kidney disease. I've been on steroid prednisone for the past 10 years now. Though my glucose had always been below the maximum 99 mg/dL, I am prediabetic. Both my nephrologist and rheumatologist told me that my HA1C is elevated due to the steroid I am taking. My internist mentioned D mannose to me, has not increased my glucose level though. But I exercise at least 3x a week so as to counter any rise in my blood sugar.
I suggest to consult your doctor before taking D mannose. What works for one does not mean it will always work for everyone else.

@mmbaluyut, I take no meds for my kidney function or prediabetes but found that changing my diet and making myself take 3 walks/week have improved both my kidney and prediabetes values. You are so right, we are each so different and meds that work for one may not for another. I'm learning to do more research on the meds I do take and to ask my docs more questions about their effects. Because of so many bouts of chronic bronchitis, I've taken a great deal of prednisone over the years. Now I question how that may have impacted my lessening kidney function.
