Childhood Diseases

Dr the gp and physio said that it will help to give my son of 6yr old Magnesium to help with his bedwetting at night...He is still using night diapers. In your opinion, will this help? Can I use MAG PHOS tissue salts? He is on Zyrtec and ashtma pumps, if Magnesium will help, what other good product can you recommend and what dosage? Is it ok for a child this age to still use night diapers?

No, it is not OK for your child to still be wearing diapers at night at the age of 6 years. It will not be at all good for his confidence. Magnesium will not benefit his bedwetting problem. Bedwetting is called enuresis. Your son is definitely now at an age when treatment is necessary. There are several excellent treatments available these days. Your son must be seen by a paediatrician about his enuresis problem ASAP.
