Patient discussion about linked

Q. Is the link between bedwetting and medicines possible? I am really worried about my 6 year old son. He is bedwetting these days every night. Initially I thought it was normal with children and then I noticed that after his diagnosis with ADHD last year the doctor has prescribed him some meds and bedwetting started thereafter. ..I think it is because of medicines. My elder son never had this problem at any point of time and he is not ADHD. Is the link between bedwetting and meds possible?

A. Well the link between ADHD and bedwetting is not clear and moreover it is common in children with or without ADHD…but ADHD children do have a higher chances of bedwetting, the reason understood are that they do not realize the importance of bed wetting and wetting doesn’t discomforts them, moreover children with ADHD are distractible and do not pay attention to the signals of the need to avoid and thus piss on bed. Your elder son did not have ADHD so he understood the controls and the need and was psychologically stronger.

Q. Is there a link between Alcoholism, and genetics? My father was an alcoholic and was very violent with my mother and with us too. So my mother divorced him but later we suffered without a family head. I am not a frequent drinker. But one day I returned home after my office party where I had consumed only a small amount of beer. My mom was very upset with me because she was scared that I might take after my father. She worries about my future as my paternal grandfather was also an alcoholic. Does that make me genetically predisposed to alcoholism, or is this an environmentally predisposed to alcoholism? Hypothetically... Is there a link between Alcoholism, and genetics? Will my family life be disrupted?

A. Now in this situation your family’s future is in your hands. There is a very strong link with alcoholism being genetic because there is a mental disorder called addictive personality that is passed on that way. If you have a strong family history then you need to be careful about how you conduct yourself. Both my parents, a brother, several grandparents, aunts, and uncles were and I'm not one. But I learned it was not a good idea to waste time watching them and emulating their habits.

Q. Is there a link between soy formula and ADHD? I've heard that alot of kids with ADHD were on soy formula. I've also heard bad things about boys that were on soy formula. Things like they are more likely to be infertile when grown up because of estrogen in the soy. Is any of this true? Is regular soy milk safe for little boys to drink

A. i’m not sure about ADHD and soy…ADHD is a condition with physical impact on the brain and you are born with it. But soy in general is not a really good idea. It’s ironic that health fanatics consider it as a good thing. It should be eaten moderately and not extensively.
