    Good morning sir, So sorry to hear this. I know how hard this can be for you and I will see what I can do to help. Please answer these questions: - have you been experiencing this since you were a child or it just started? -do you feel pepperish sensation whenever you urinate? -do you have difficulty passing urine -have you tried to avoid these foods you mentioned above? Do you bed-wet when you avoid them? I will await your reply

    i have been experiencing it since i was a child. i don't feel any pepperish sensation when ever i want to urinate. i dont have difficulty in passing out urinating. i do avoid those foods i mention earlier sometimes but as a Yoruba ethnic in Nigeria , its unavoidable because that's my favourite meal. but what i found out is that. any time i ate bread with little water at night. it doesn't occur. the bed wetting mostly occur at night only, though i dont usually sleep at day time like that.

    OK. The reason why I asked is because of the common causes of bed-wetting in adult which include urinary tract infection, Obstructive urinary diseases like Benign prostatic hyperplasia, prostatitis. From your response, it appears all you need is some lifestyle modification most especially what you eat before going to bed. You should reduce the amount of water you take from around 6pm downward, if possible, eat your night meal at this time too. You can also set an alarm to be waking you every 1 hour to pee. This also works. Do you consume a lot of water during the day? Do you also urinate alot during the day?

    Hello, I will like you to screen yourself for diabetes mellitus by doing a fasting blood glucose test in any reputable medical laboratory around you. You can tell me the result when you have done it. Diabetes too can be responsible. It's true we doctors advise that you should be drinking plenty of water, but in your own case, you level of intake must be reduced to avoid excessive urination. I won't be able to give you my contact as this is not allowed on this platform. I'm always here, whenever you want to talk. Thanks
