Nephroptosis : Nephroptosis is also called a â€œsagging kidneyâ€. The kidney could be floating or loose and as a result it can drop down lower in the abdominal cavity. Nephroptosis can be asymptomatic or it can cause problems like urinary tract infections (having a urgent need to go or having to urinate more often). Sometimes it can be a cause for nausea, vomiting, constipation or a full or heavy feeling abdomen. Sometimes it can even lead to problems with sleep or dizziness. It is good that you are having him thoroughly evaluated. ...Read more
Evaluation: Nothing to drink for 2 hours before bedtime, make sure he empties his bladder just before going to bed. You can also try an alarm that will wake him at the first sign of wetness.

That's like being ashamed of your height. Also under genetic control. There are medicines that help but first get the history. ...Read more
