  1. Ayesha

    Heyy, my names ayesha and im 23 years old diagnosed with type 1 diabetes although not officially as my documents say unspecified type but i do take 7-8units of lantus before bed. I have wet the bed on two occasions and feel completely embarrassed and im actually scared to talk to my doctor about it face to face because im so old. Its abit worrying as reading through this forum young children are experiencing bed wetting and considering im alot older is this normal? I checked my blood when it had happened and it was 4.3 so its not like it was extremely high which is more embarrasing. are there any adults that experience this? or could it be something else? thanks

    Hi Ayesha, please don't be afraid to discuss this with your nurse or doctor, they are very used to hearing this sort of thing, and bed-wetting is not confined to children. There may be a very simple reason for it and your anxieties would be removed It's possible that, although your levels were 4.3 at the time, this could have caused it as you may have been lower than that previously (your levels can rise and fall through the night as glucose is released by your liver at different rates). I often awake with the need to go to the loo and discover that my levels are low or actually hypo - it's not only high levels that can cause this response from your bladder.
    However, it really is worth investigating as there may be a completely different cause that can be easily sorted out.

    Absolutely it can be for many many reasons Ayesha, apart from Diabetes or being an infant! You absolutely MUST see your doctor - and please don't you dare be embarrassed even though it's hateful having to talk about any plumbing or sex-organ problems - for either sex. This won't be your problem of course - but eg prostate cancer can manifest itself with waterworks problems and because a lot of blokes ignore it - assuming wrongly that it's just a sign of creeping old age - far far too many men die of a cancer that is treatable if caught early enough.
    Make that appointment asap please.
