Cranberry juice pros and cons

7 months ago

Hi - say I just got over a bladder infection and just had a cystoscopy - I had that procedure done because I get frequent UTIs and get so tired of it I don't have much of a life because of it. Anyway, I read where cranberry is very acid and can irritate your bladder. Then I hear it is good for your bladder. My grocer even ordered and got in stock the organic cranberry juice I wanted without sugar. Anyway, since my latest UTI I don't know about whether I should add water to it and have 1 glass or not. I forgot to ask my urologist yesterday but then not sure if they know much about cranberry juice. Do any of you know much about cranberry juice or do you take it when you have a UTI or do you take it every day to prevent one or not at all
