Bed Wetting

BHMS
Homeopath, Delhi
Bed Wetting

Bedwetting or nocturnal eneuresis as it medically is quite common in children. Generally, bed-wetting before age 7 isn't a concern. At this age, your child may still be developing nighttime bladder control.


Bed-wetting is involuntary urination while asleep after the age at which staying dry at night can be reasonably expected.

Most kids are fully toilet trained by age 5, but there's really no target date for developing complete bladder control. Between the ages of 5 and 7, bed-wetting remains a problem for some children. But if it still continues after 7 its a matter of concern this means the nervous control over the bladder is not yet reached.

Causes of bed wetting:

Commonest of all is habits. Many children habitually ignore the urge to urinate and put off urinating as long as they possibly can

Urinary tract infection: the resulting bladder irritation can cause pain or irritation with urination, a strongeurge to urinate (urgency), and frequent urination (frequency).

Inability to recognize a full bladder. If the nerves that control the bladder are slow to mature, a full bladder may not wake your child — especially if your child is a deep sleeper.

Stress and Stressful events — such as becoming a big brother or sister, starting a new school, or sleeping away from home — may trigger bed-wetting.

Role of homoeopathy in bedwetting:

Homoeopathy works on the immune system. Homeopathic medicine will increase the muscle or nervous control and hence can cure it in a months time.

I can understand your concern - commonest cause of such loose stools are - milk protein allergy, lactose intolerance and improper digestion n food habit and rarely disease known as" celiac disease" which is an allergy of gehu. Wheat. So pls get tests for these many issues done especially - test named as ttg-a.

Babies' head feel hotter as the normal body heat exchange takes place mainly through head as it has greater surface area.

My baby (15 weeks) had received 2 doses of IPV (at 6 and 10 week respectively) as part of his regular immunization schedule. For 3rd dose (at 14th week) he was given OPV instead of IPV. Should I concern about this? Can I give an IPV too? Will this over dose him?

Stop immediately breast feeding your elder. At this age no nutritional value in your milk rather he will not take proper solid foods which are necessary in growing children and it will also effect yr foetus growth.

What is zinc preparation and how will it cure loose motions in my one year old daughter?

What is zinc preparation and how will it cure loose motions in my one year old daughter?
ORS is the first step you have to turn towards. There is quantity of water prescribed on the sachet that is to be mixed for 1 sachet of ORS powder. Zinc suspension helps a lot in infants suffering from loose motion. Z & D drops is the most prescribed one. My pediatrician does so. Ofcourse, these should be given only after consulting your pediatrician. Bifilac Probiotic Syrup is the most effective I have experienced for my daughter. Loose motion, may it be due to any reason, this oral suspension for babies help to cope up with the situation. This is a powder medicine that needs to be mixed with clean drinking water before use. Once the water is added, the medicine can be used for a maximum of 5 days. Rest should be discarded.

How to Surgically Treat Cleft Palate

MS - General Surgery, MBBS
General Surgeon, Guwahati
How to Surgically Treat Cleft Palate

Cleft palate or palatoschisis is a common genetic abnormality that leads to a horde of problems and is presently a growing challenge to medicine practitioners. The major developmental stages affected due to this particular irregularity include feeding, speech development, dentition and maxillofacial growth which are rather important to the normal overall developmental pace of an individual. Even though the cleft palate deformity was defined centuries ago, no fixed management algorithm exists for patients suffering from the condition in the present day scenario.

Cleft palate may be successfully fixed using reconstructive surgery. Multiple specialists are involved in the reconstruction surgery including plastic surgeons, otolaryngologists, nutritionists, oromaxillofacial surgeons and speech pathologists. Some hospitals also consider psychological therapy for the patient and the family to help get through the emotional trauma and the issues faced due to developmental backlogs.

The treatment for cleft palate usually begins around 9 to 12 months of age. If left untreated, it may cause major deformities. It takes about some years before the whole procedure is completed although it depends on the type and severity of the deformity.

The process involves the administration of anaesthesia after which the palate repair closes the inner, middle and final layers and at the same time realigning of the palatal muscles in a technique called anintravelarveloplasty is conducted. This ensures that the muscles are adjusted in a normal position which facilitates the best functioning of the palate during feeding, swallowing and speaking. It is possible that the child might require more than one surgery to completely close the palate.

Some of the risks involved during the process include:
1. Abnormal reactions to the medications
2. Bleeding
3. Problems in breathing
4. Need for more surgery
5. Infection

Although complicated and time consuming, cleft palate must be given immediate attention to avoid serious developmental issues. The reconstruction surgery and therapy combined ensures a normal development for the child in the longer run, given the surgery was done at the correct time. The child would be required to remain at the hospital for about 5-7 days. Complete recovery takes a time period of 4 weeks. Keeping the wound of the surgery clean is of the utmost importance and it should not be strained. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a specilized pediatrics and ask a free question.

A defect in one of several genes that produce or distribute melanin causes albinism. The defect may result in the absence of melanin production, or a reduced amount of melanin production. The defective gene passes down from both parents to the child and causes albinism.Because the disease is genetic, there are no cures; treatment revolves around minimizing the symptoms and watching for changes. Getting the right care for eye problems is essential, including prescription glasses, dark glasses to protect the eyes from the sun and regular eye exams. It is also important to watch the skin for changes and to use sunblock to for protection. Surgery on the optical muscles can sometimes minimize the "shaking" in nystagmus. Similarly, operations to minimize strabismus can make it less noticeable. The surgery does not improve vision, however, and the level of success in reducing symptoms varies from individual to individual. Albinism does not get worse with age, and a child with albinism is able to flourish and achieve the same education and employment as a person without the condition.
