Adult Bedwetting

More than 500,000 American adults suffer from adult bedwetting, and contrary to popular belief, the condition is not an inevitable symptom of old age. Bedwetting can indicate ailments such as diabetes, cancer, bladder infection, or enlarged prostate gland [for men] so it’s vital to consult with your physician to determine its cause.  

“If you are suffering from bedwetting as an adult, don’t accept it as your reality,” ER Physician Dr. Travis Stork says. “Talk to your physician, there is hope out there.”

Dr. Jim Sears demonstrates ways to treat newborn constipation.  WATCH...

Pediatrician Dr. Jim Sears says that constipation is common in newborns. “Their stool should be nice and mushy,” he explains.

Switching between breast milk and formula can cause constipation, as well as the introduction of any new milk source. Make sure to give baby lots of fluids, which will increase fluid in the colon and stool.

Signs of Newborn Constipation

  • Straining to pass firm stool less than once a day
  • Painful, dry, hard stool
  • Hard, pebble-sized stool
  • Abdominal discomfort

OB-GYN Dr. Lisa Masterson explains a molar pregnancy and how the condition is treated. WATCH...

“It’s a no-brainer,” plastic surgeon Dr. Andrew Ordon says. “I wouldn’t do Botox, fillers, laser treatments or any unnecessary local anesthetics while you’re pregnant.”

Because there is no information as to whether prior Botox injections affect pregnancy, OB-GYN Dr. Lisa Masterson adds that it’s important for women to tell their doctor if they’ve had the procedure done. “We’ll survey the pregnancy really carefully, just to make sure there’s nothing going on. I.e. early ultrasounds and things like that,” she notes.

Nine-year-old Blake’s mother is 5-foot-1 and his father is 6-foot-4, and Blake wonders on which end of the spectrum he’ll fall.
