The Berry Truth: Cystex Know Your Bladder Better Video Explains Why Cranberries Are Great for UTI Prevention, But Not for Treatment
Date:8/26/2009

Elizabeth Kavaler, M.D., Board-Certified Urologist, Addresses the Role of Cranberries for Bladder Health

Edison, NJ (PRWEB) August 26, 2009 -- According to Elizabeth Kavaler, M.D., featured urologist in the new Cystex "Know Your Bladder Better" video series and author of "A Seat on the Aisle, Please! The Essential Guide to Urinary Tract Problems in Women," (Copernicus Books, 2006), "Cranberries contain chemicals called proanthocyanidins (PACS) which prevent E. coli bacteria from adhering to the cells lining the urinary tract. This lowers the risk of getting a urinary tract infection (UTI) because E. coli is responsible for 85% of UTIs."

However, while cranberries can aid in UTI prevention, Dr. Kavaler says that once you have this type of infection, cranberries in any form will do little to help treat it, and can actually exacerbate the painful urination that is one of the main symptoms associated with a UTI.

"The pain of a UTI is caused by irritation and inflammation of the urethra and urethral opening. Once you have a urinary tract infection, the same acid in the cranberry juice that acidifies the urine to help keep bacteria at bay can actually increase the irritation and cause more pain when urinating," she explains.

She advises that the best thing to do is to make an appointment to see your healthcare provider who will take a culture to confirm that you have a UTI and if so, will prescribe a course of antibiotics. In the meantime, however, while waiting to see your doctor, take the over-the-counter urinary pain relief medication Cystex to help calm the symptoms.

To help women better understand their bladder health, Dr. Kavaler is the featured expert of the new Cystex "
