Someone I know drinks alcohol heavily and urinates while sleeping all the time. Some one told me his kidneys are failing. Should I be concered? Is this in fact that or is it something else. I have drank, but I always wake up when I have to go to the bathroom. I am really concerned with this and don't know how to make it stop. Can anyone help.
This never use to happen and now it seems to happen all the time. I do try to encourage passing urine before bed, I was just worried that since this had not happened before that something was shutting down or somthing had happened.
It is evident the amount of alcohol that is being taken that is not waking him up to go to the bathroom. How sad.
Thank you for your time. Noone had written back and I was quite worried.
