Allergy programme succeeds where drug fails

MagazineFebruary 1997 (Vol. 7 Issue 11)Allergy programme succeeds where drug fails

Concerning your Drug of the Month: desmopressin (vol 6 no 6), I thought it was designed not primarily for bedwetting but for those with diabetes insipidus, whose posterior pituitary gland has atrophied, and no longer secretes the antidiuretic hormone

Concerning your Drug of the Month: desmopressin (vol 6 no 6), I thought it was designed not primarily for bedwetting but for those with diabetes insipidus, whose posterior pituitary gland has atrophied, and no longer secretes the antidiuretic hormone

Ironically, our seven year old, who has diabetes insipidus, uses desmopressin and used to wet the bed very frequently. His consultant said he could not help, as our son was already using the durg prescribed for the problem.

The bedwetting stopped suddenly and for good the night after an allergy treatment (called a "provocation neutralization" technique), involving arm pressure testing and sublingual drops of a dilution of the allergen. Anon, London.......
