Why do you want to give your baby water? Generally speaking, breastmilk and formula have what is needed to hydrate her/him. In any case, the baby should be at least 6 months old. Here's an article that explains what you should think about before doing so:
I think that sometimes you have to weigh up how much your problem is bothering you and whether you really need to get help or not. I mean, if you had cancer, you would go out of your way to see a specialist, wouldn't you? Or if you had crippling back pain?
I didn't mean to suggest that your doctor was not up to scratch, only that she is a generalist and a generalist cannot know everything that a specialist knows.
Maybe double check that there isn't a urologist on the island. It's quite a common specialty.
Good luck. I hope you find a solution that you're comfortable with View Thread
Urine tests aren't the best for detecting type 2 diabetes because the sugar levels need to be fairly high to be caught. This means that if you are in the early stages of diabetes or even if you were fasting that diabetes could be missed.
A family history of diabetes can increase your risk of having it but absence of diabetes in the family does not mean you cannot have it.
The way I see it is that your mother successfully raised five children who could think for themselves. That is no mean feat. They are not showing disrespect by not going to church with your parents, simply affirming their beliefs (or lack thereof). Would your mother rather they pretended and were hypocrites?
If your mother refuses to talk about this then there isn't really very much you can do. Perhaps have a word with the pastor yourself? Tell him what is going on and how much she is suffering about this so that he can maybe find a discreet way of getting her to open up? You might also try to find ways of getting your mother to focus more on the good things about your siblings than what she perceives to be the bad things because that is no doubt blinding her to all the rest.
Yes, it's two doses here too. For children who are in daycare, the first is given at 9 months. For all others, it's at 12 months. Children who got the first at 9 months get the second before 15 months. The others get theirs before 24 months.
