My daughter is 25yo and has been wetting the bed since she was 2yo, and still does it to this day, I have been to many specialist regarding this problem but nothing has worked for her, any information and advice would be much appreciated.... Thankyou Tracy 😆

Dear Tracy - this must be so difficult for her. To be honest it is hard for me to recommend anything in particular given you have already been working alongside a specialist and I would be reluctant to suggest anything that may be counter-productive. I’m not sure whether you are open to exploring alternate treatments – but if so, I know of people who have found hypnotherapy useful with respect to helping them wake throughout the night. Your best point of contact for hypnotherapy is the Australian Hypnotherapists’ Association http://www.ahahypnotherapy.org.au/, which has branches in each state. There is also increasing research showing links between bedwetting and food intolerances - if this is something you would like to explore then I would recommend connecting with a dietician or naturopath. Kind Regards, Dr Cathrine
