I held off the abx, as my ND gave me some d. mannose to give him. I was giving him a fairly high dose (1/2 to 1 full teaspoon 4 times a day) I was also giving him probiotics (with the lacto.. stains)
He didn't sleep well any single night the whole week. He would wake himself up from the tossing and turning & grabbing at his diaper. He would pee in the night which is unusual for him, and it would still smell a little off. The morning and day time pees would never cause him issues nor would they smell.
The ND dipped his urine with a test strip Fri and nothing showed up, so I thought we were making progress.
Last night was yet another restless night, and this morning his urine was cloudy and smelly and he complained ( he pees on the potty) He hasn't had a fever through the whole process, but did have blood in his urine in the beginning.
I'm getting the results of another urine culture taken Mon. today.
So, does this mean the d. mannose isn't working?
I've been giving him the adult dose of the mannose for a week, does it just mean I need to go higher?
I will be seeing the ND as soon as I get in, but I'll admit, I'm a little worried.
I have a script for abx that I haven't filled, is this one of those situations where it's necessary?
I could use any help or thought you have on this - thank you
