Hi. My son is nearly 8 and is being treated with desmopressin for his bedwetting. It seems to have helped a little but he has only had a few dry nights, nothing consistent. It does seem to help if I lift him late at night, otherwise he usually wets, sometimes several times. We have seen the continence nurse and are assured he drinks the right amount of the right fluids. He has previously had a dairy allergy with chronic constipation but that has all been fine for about a year.
One thing we have to do before his next appointment is fill in a chart about how much he wees and how much. This has highlighted how many trips to the loo he is making! It's only 11am and he's been 7 times already! Each time its been between 60-80mls. Apparently it should be 240ml? Sometimes he's had to rush urgently. I'm guessing this could be the reason he's wet at night? He's dry through the day and theres no signs of infection. When he was born he was hypoglycaemic...not sure if theres any connection? Any advice would be great!
