It is very important to handle adult bed wetting without delay as this is not a small issue any longer

. If you're an adult and have had moments of bed wetting, it's necessary that you go to a health consultant immediately, as frequent incidents of grown-up bed wetting is usually the symptom of a serious issue.Heavily alcohol drinking is probably the one and only instance of adult bed wetting that doesn't require urgent and extreme procedures. Alcohol causes high rates of urination, and if you drink a high amount of alcohol right before you sleep, you're at medium danger of wetting the bed. While this could be very awkward the next morning, so long as the alcohol drinking isn't repeated daily, it is not the indication of a more terrible problem.

The causes of bed wetting in grown-ups are various and the bulk of them can be quite acute. Liver, kidney and bladder failure can initiate bed wetting, as can diseases such as Lupus. A physician is the only one that can do the necessary blood tests to see what the reason for grown-up bed wetting is, you should make an appointment immediately.

If you suffer from adult bed wetting, you will need to take some steps to make yourself as comfortable as possible. A first and easy such intitiative that you can take towards putting an end to bed wetting habits is employing a special alarm that will wake you up should you begin urinating in bed. This tool can not prevent the process from taking place, but it will enable you to clean up the mess immediately. In addition to this, using adult diapers will limit the amount of mess that makes its way to the bed. Synthetic sheets can shield the mattress from urine, and this is a great solution against bed wetting because the mattress can be very difficult to clean and to deodorize.

If you are coping with the problem of adult bed wetting, it is very important that you try to manage your self-esteem . Being sick is not a motive to feel badly about yourself. Bed wetting as an adult is not something you are at fault for, but rather a medical condition that needs to be taken care of.

    What is lupus and how does one get lupus?
    My annoying ex-boyfriend and I got into a huge argument over what lupus really is. My dad, a physician for very sick adults, told me that lupus could be anything because it disguises itself as other diseases. My ex told me, his source being a doctor, that lupus was a skin disease and that it starts out as a skin disease. Any medical information?

      The cause of lupus is unknown. It falls under the category of autoimmune diseases, which are noninfectious diseases where the body is believed to be, for some reason, attacking itself. There is one type of lupus which is called “discoid lupus erythematosos” which affects only the skin and is usually not very serious. The other lupus can attack MANY different areas of the body and its seriousness can go from mild to extremely severe. There is not one specific test for lupus and it can be hard to diagnose since its presentation may differ greatly from person to person and it may appear differently at different times even in the same person. Some of the more common presentations may include joint pain and swelling, chronic or intermittent low grade temperature, severe fatigue, red skin rashes (the “classic” lupus skin lesion is a red rash appearing over the nose/upper cheeks in the form of a butterfly–but of course not everyone gets that)–lupus can also affect the kidneys, the cardiovascular system, can cause blood disorders and may cause many other symptoms as well. In some cases lupus patients may experience head hair loss. If lupus is suspected, the best type of doctor to see would be a rheumatologist who would be familiar with the group of blood tests which may indicate that a person MAY have lupus–since there is no one blood test. If a person is diagnosed as having lupus, treatment would be directed at stopping the abnormal body response that is causing the patient’s symptoms–there are a number of very different types of medications which can be used to try to achieve this.I have given a very general description of a very complicated disorder and would suggest you read up on it –perhaps WEBMD would be a place to start.

    I have a family member who has lupus and has chronic flares she says she’s in constant pain but she wont see?
    rhemutoligist she takes medicine but its pain medicine. Does her not treating the lupus decrease her life expectancy, and if so how many years can she live with untreated lupus? Will it eventually cripple her?

    1. Linda R

      Untreated lupus can result in permanent organ damage and even organ failure. She is treating the symptoms and not the cause. The cause of her pain is that her immune system is attacking healthy parts of herself. The only way to stop that is to take immunosuppressive drugs.

      No one can predict life span. People with lupus are up to 6 times more likely to have heart attacks and strokes because of the chronic inflammation. The immunosuppressives help bring the inflammation under control. Lupus does not destroy joints the way rheumatoid arthritis does. But the constant pain means she will not want to exercise leading to loss of flexibility and range of motion as well as conditions like heart disease and obesity.

      All that said, she is an adult. You can give her the facts. You can’t make her take care of herself. But as long as the family is giving her attention by worrying for her, she doesn’t have to bother. Lay out the proof and let her decide. You can’t control this.

    What is your opinion on laser eye surgery to correct nearsightedness?
    I’ve done my homework on the subject and am going in for a consultation visit, however I’m just curious about others’ opinions on the idea and if it worked for you? More importantly, if it didn’t work for you?
    I’ve worn glasses for 20 years and I’m ready for the change.

    Is there anyway I can get tested for lupus without my fathers consent?
    I’m currently 15, and my father won’t get me tested for lupus even though my mother has it. I show signs of Lupus, and my mother wants to get me tested (my parents are divorced) what should I do? How can I get these tests done, just to be sure, without my fathers consent? Is there anyway?
    I have no “doctor”, and i have these symptoms:
    Painful or swollen joints and muscle pain
    Unexplained fever
    Red rashes, most commonly on the face
    Chest pain upon deep breathing
    Extreme fatigue
    And Swelling (edema) in legs
    mouth ulcers

      Make the connection….

      Being a nurse with over 25 years experience, I have seen a lot of adults and children with various illnesses and disorders. While many allergic type reactions are caused from eating certain foods, there are many more allergic type reactions caused from common everyday chemicals and fragranced products as well as VOC’s in homes, schools and workplace.

      This is a growing problem and many people are not even aware that it exists as more and more chemicals are being introduced and used on a daily basis. Many people believe that because something smells good or cleans well and it is on a store shelf that it is tested, approved and safe for use.
      Think again !

      We are now seeing more and more children and adults with skin disorders, itching, Chronic Nausea, Chronic Rhinitis, Chronic Headaches, Sinusitis, Migraines, Sinus Infections, Asthma, Allergies, Hives, Eczema, sinus / respiratory illnesses and Hormone related disorders. I can not emphasize how important it is to educate yourself about MULTIPLE CHEMICAL SENSITIVITY (MCS) and the harm you may be doing to your health by using chemicals and fragranced products.

      If you or a loved one has symptoms of or suffers from Asthma, Allergies, Autism, chronic headaches, reproductive problems, Migraines, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Lupus or Fibromyalgia, you need to read further and learn about the signs and symptoms of MCS – Multiple Chemical Sensitivity.

      Most doctors will not inform you about this because patients as a whole like to walk out of a doctors office with a prescription for some magical medicine and they do not want to be told that their expensive new perfume or newly installed carpet may be the culprit. So, the doctor will give you medications and many of these meds either do not work or cause other health problems.

      Chemicals and fragranced products are often the root of many disorders and illnesses when it comes to your health. Many of the below mentioned items are common triggers to sinus, asthma, itching, headaches, Migraines and allergy problems amongst other health issues. Get rid of them and your immune and respiratory system will thank you and you will breathe easier.

      And, it is not only personal body or cleaning products causing havoc on your health….many people become ill after wearing brand new clothing, dry-cleaned clothes, installing new carpet, painting, buying a new mattress or after home renovations because of the Flame Retardants, Antimony, Benzenes, Formaldehydes, etc. used in these products. So the answer is NO, you are not imagining that 2 weeks after your home, office or classroom got renovated you started to become ill, get dizzy or have headaches. This is happening more and more these days and adults as well as children are becoming sicker and sicker.

      Unfortunately, too many doctors compound the problem by prescribing chemical medications to try to alleviate the symptoms of an already chemical overloaded body and they rarely tell the patient to eliminate the chemical offenders. How many times have I seen people in the grocery store with Bounce, Glade Plug-Ins and Febreeze in their shopping cart along with a bottle of Benadryl , Migraine Excedrin and a box of Allergy Tablets ? Why don’t they make the connection?

      Keep in mind that your skin is the largest organ of your body and what you put on your skin gets absorbed into your body. Then … well… then it has to be filtered by your organs which are already working real hard.

      BIG NO-NO’s —- I would SERIOUSLY recommend removing all of the below from your living / working area.

      No Bounce or dryer sheets – these are VERY toxic
      No Febreeze – your pets will even thank you for this
      No Glade Plug-ins – VERY toxic
      No Scented candles
      No Scented Dish Detergents
      No Fragranced Products on Body, Hair or Clothing
      No Smoke
      No Newspapers and Magazines – The ink is a huge irritant.
      No Dander
      No Sprays
      No Sharpies (marker pens)
      New Cartpeting, mattresses, paint, contain toxins that can trigger severe respiratory disorders as well as headaches and Asthma flare-ups.
      And remember, it is NOT the smell it is the Chemicals that make up the smell. So, even if something is “Fragrance Free” these products often mask the smell with another chemical ! There are plenty of safe healthy products out there that work well and do not have added chemical fragrances.

      More and more workplaces & schools are implementing Fragrance Free policies and creating “Fragrance Free Zones”… why do you think this is? Make the connection, your lungs , immune system and your general health will thank you.

    Why does my scalp itch when I let my hair dry naturally?
    Everytime I let my hair dry naturally, my scalp gets unbearably itchy and it feels really greasy. The skin isn’t dry at all. I can’t help but itch it then it bleeds. The only way I can stop the itching is by washing my hair again and blow drying it. I’ve tried using different shampoos but nothing has worked so far. I make sure I rinse my hair well too. Any ideas?

    1. Sur La Mer

      Itchy scalp is a symptom, and people who don’t have that, there’s a reason why they don’t itch.
      An itchy scalp is an inflammatory reaction of the skin underneath the hair on your head. An itchy scalp is a common problem, particularly among adults. An itchy scalp may or may not be associated with a visible rash or broken skin. An itchy scalp can be caused by a serious underlying condition that requires medical treatment, such as lupus or hypothyroidism. If you have an itchy scalp that is persistent, seek prompt medical care to talk with your medical professional about your symptoms.

      Did you say your scalp also itch then it bleeds? It’s time to see a dermatologist.

      Shampoos are not meant to help medicate your itching. You could be doing more harm than good. It’s best someone take a closer look @ what the problem is.
