What is D-mannose?

D-mannose is a kind of sugar that is related to glucose.

D-mannose is used for preventing urinary tract infections (UTIs) and treating carbohydrate-deficient glycoprotein syndrome, an inherited metabolic disorder.

Insufficient Evidence to Rate Effectiveness for...

  • Treating a rare inherited disorder called carbohydrate-deficient glycoprotein syndrome type 1b. Some reports suggest that taking D-mannose supplements improves protein loss, liver function, low blood sugar, and blood clotting disorders in people with this condition.
  • Preventing urinary tract infections (UTIs).
  • Other conditions.
More evidence is needed to rate the effectiveness of D-mannose for these uses.

Natural Medicines Comprehensive Database rates effectiveness based on scientific evidence according to the following scale: Effective, Likely Effective, Possibly Effective, Possibly Ineffective, Likely Ineffective, and Insufficient Evidence to Rate (detailed description of each of the ratings).
