2. give sips of water before 2 hrs of sleep

3. make her go to toilet befoe sleep.

4. Get her awake at 80 min after she sleeps and make her to go toilet.( this is imp)

5 .Room Temp not to be too cold.

6. Dont Scold if she bed wets

Stop bothering about this problem and making the child very conscious.My brother had a similar problem till he was 12, 13 years old. Then the problem automatically got resolved as he grew up. I have heard of many such cases where things get ok by time. No point trying medicine including homeopathy as this problem will get over on its own.

Enuresis or bed wetting is the involuntary passage of urine beyond the age of anticipated control that is usually 5-6 years. 15-20% of children 5 years of age wet their beds. Nearly 5% of 10 year olds will wet, and 1% of adolescents and adults continue to wet. It is twice as common in boys as in girls. Bedwetting also seems to run in families. What are the types of wetting problems? Primary enuresis means that the child has been wet from the beginning, whereas secondary enuresis means that the child had been dry earlier and has now started wetting. The latter condition could be due to urinary infection, diseases like diabetes, structural abnormalities in the urinary passages or stressful situations at school or at home like divorce, demanding parents or the arrival of a sibling. What are the symptoms? Commonly, wetting at night is the only symptom, but some children also have frequent urination during the daytime with occasional wetting. It has been seen that children who are constipated are more likely to have enuresis. What investigations are needed? The doctor first takes a detailed history and examines the child to exclude structural abnormalities that may be the cause of bed-wetting. In case a doubt persists after examination, the doctor will order a urine test to exclude urinary infection. An ultrasound scan may be done to evaluate the urinary system for structural abnormalities. Rarely, special tests may be asked for, like intravenous pyelography (IVP) that is a special X-ray test after an injection into the vein, or cystometry in which the pressures inside the urinary bladder are measured.

Hullo Doctor - My mother s TLC count is 26000. She has diverticulitis and one or two perforated but sealed naturally. Her urine and blood cultures are sterile. Amikacin and Doripenem is being administered for the past 8 days yet her TLC count has been increasing. Also Enoxapain is being given as she suffered from a minor stroke. She is on liquid and semi solid diet though she can consume little. However improvement there as she was not being able to drink more than a sip of water 3 days ago - now she has half a bowl of soup and few sips of juice throughout the day. Fever sometimes reaches 100 but not beyond. Passes stool after taking Movicol at night. My question- are we on the right track? Why is the TLC count going up? What more can be done?
