Dear patient,

For recurrent urinary tract infections, daily cranberry juice seems to help many patients from clinical trials. Others actually do need to be on maintenance low dose antibiotics. If estrogen deficiency is an issue, then topical genital estrogen helps as well. The anemia needs to be further defined (cause) and treated accordingly.

Truly yours,
