Any urinary tract infection (e.g. cystitis, pyelonephritis or prostatitis) should be treated with antibiotics specifically directed against the most common flora of the urinary tract, gram-negative bacilli.
However, urinary tract infections, especially cystitis and prostatitis, can recur. In these cases, a non-pharmacological treatment is tried. To prevent recurrent infections without administering antibiotics, different strategies have been used. For example, eating blueberries, compounds rich in vitamin C, mannose or hyaluronic acid. Although these compounds are believed to help prevention, none has yet been clearly demonstrated in clinical trials.
