Tackling bedwetting: ‘Don’t be afraid to talk about it’
Bedwetting, otherwise known as urinary incontinence or enuresis, is fairly common, often embarrassing and sometimes difficult to talk about. It is estimated that about 20 percent of boys and 17 percent of girls, ages 6 to 7 years old have some problem with daytime or nighttime wetting. Still, many kids are reluctant to talk about wetting with parents, friends and teachers. Parents themselves often have a hard time confronting the issue. The Voiding Improvement Program (VIP) at Boston Children’s Hospital offers a comprehensive approach to bedwetting tailored to each child’s individual needs. &ldqu...

FYI, There's No Such Thing As A 'Right Way' To Wash Your Hair
The New York Times recently declared there is a right way to clean your hair. Teen Vogue said you’re washing your hair wrong earlier this year, and Allure claimed there’s a right way to shampoo hair back in 2014. And none of the techniques they suggest are the same. At HuffPost alone, we have explored several different methods for washing your tresses ― using a cleansing conditioner, skipping a rinse in favor of dry shampoo, and reaping the shiny rewards of apple cider vinegar are just a few.  But here’s the thing: It turns out there isn’t a “right way” to wash...

The Human Cost Of Trump's Rollback On Regulations
WASHINGTON ― If Tom Ward had to die from his work, he’d rather fall off a scaffold than endure the slow death his father did from the debilitating lung disease silicosis. “I would choose to go much quicker,” he said, “rather than to have my family watch me suffer.” Ward fears that other workers will face the same suffocating illness as his father, thanks to the regulatory rollback underway by the Trump administration. Ward’s father spent several years working as a sandblaster in Michigan. It was most likely on that job that he breathed a lethal amount of crystalline silica, a carcinoge...

Try Not to Cry When Your Child's Not Dry - Finding Solutions to Bedwetting
Huffington Post is proud to partner with the American Sleep Association (ASA) to promote sleep awareness. What is Primary Nocturnal Enuresis (PNE)? Primary nocturnal enuresis is the medical term for bedwetting. Bedwetting is a very common problem, and parents are often wondering how best to approach it for their child. While many parents report that their child wets the bed because he or she is a very deep sleeper, the validity of this has been debated. There is an association between children who wet the bed and those who spend more time in deeper stages of sleep but nonetheless, bedwetting can occur at any time during ...

Rwanda: Dealing With Bedwetting in Adults
[New Times] Bed-wetting, also known as sleep enuresis, is a fairly common condition in young children and is seen as a sign of an immature, developing bladder. However, when adults wet the bed it is not only a devastatingly embarrassing condition but also often an indication of an underlying illness or a symptom of other untreated medical conditions. Bed-wetting that starts in adulthood (secondary enuresis) is uncommon and requires medical evaluation. (Source: AllAfrica News: Health and Medicine)

How Can Melatonin Be Used to Help Sleep?
Discussion Sleep is regulated by the homeostatic sleep drive and the circadian system which controls periods of activity and inactivity throughout the day. The circadian rhythm is slightly longer than 24 hours in humans and is controlled by the hypothalmic suprachiasmatic nucleus. When the circadian system and the external environment are misaligned, such that sleep occurs outside of normal times, a circadian rhythm sleep disorder can occur. Everyone experiences disturbances of sleep throughout their lifetime. During adolescence, there is a normal physiologic change so that there is a shift to a later sleep phase for adol...

Why your wheezing baby may need TLC, not medication
Follow me at @drClaire When a baby is sick with fever, cough, and a wheeze, it’s natural to think that what they need is medication — like an antibiotic, or one of the medications used to treat wheezing in children with asthma (such as albuterol). But it turns out that if a condition called bronchiolitis is the culprit, the best treatment is no treatment. Bronchiolitis is a bad cold (caused by various viruses) that settles into the lungs. When it does, it leads to fever, lots of congestion, cough, and noisy or wheezy breathing. It’s incredibly common. In fact, one in five babies under 12 months ends up at...
