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?
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?
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
