My 15 month old son has long frequent night wakings and never slept through night. He takes one good midday nap and goes to bed at the same time?
Sleep routines: All adults & kids wake in the night but most learn to resettle & most don't remember the event. An infant that never learned to start sleep alone is unlikely to do so in the night. Day naps should be limited to no > 2hrs or the kid can flip his day/night pattern. Shaping a bedtime routine that allows baby to unwind, listen to a story, but settle in bed alone can also improve this problem. ...Read more

ED: Intermittent erectile dysfunction at your age is not likely due to DM (unless you have had DM for many years) especially if you are having full erections then losing them. Seems like you may have some psychologic component. Your DM does need better control. This will prevent ED in the future. In the interim see your doc for a full eval and to consider therapy for your current problem. ...Read more

Bp midday is always about 140/85. But by 4 it starts to climb. It can go as high as 180/100 then after dinner by 7 it is Down to 140 again.?
BP varies diurnally:
BP can vary widely through out the day depending on such things as activity levels, fluid and salt intakes with meals and snacks, etc. Plus, medications themselves have peak effects and then tend to wear off.
The fact that you are monitoring your BP is more important than panicking over occasional high BP readings. Your BP is supposed to go up -- the problem is if it doesn't go down. ...Read more
