chalky urine

The very first night I tried IBT, I got up the next day and urinated the weirdest urine I've ever seen! It was like someone had crushed some chalk into a glass of Irn Bru! It had never been like that before. It was like a whole buncha stuff just got up and left that night! Probably something to do with 10 tablets a day for ten years.

No more puffy eyes in the morning either.

It almost feels as if IBT has opened up my skeleton more and broadened my chest and shoulders!?!

I tried 7 inches and I felt like I was sliding down the bed so I had to lower it to 6 inches. I had some convex Ikea slats underneath. I turned the IKEA slats upside down so that the mattress was more concave. This allowed me to raise the head by 8 inches without the "sliding" feeling. Unfortuantely, the upside down slats kept falling throughh the bed! So I got some wood from the lumberyard and used that instead. Now I use some 1/2 inch thick by 6 inch foam along the 2 sides to help make the mattress more concave. Well, I suppose this only works if you have a single bed!

Prolapse & Bladder leaks

Dear Andrew,                                                                                                         31 August 2016

We read about Inclined Bed Therapy in an article, we tried it right away with 15 centimeters (6 inches) under our head. That was 7 days ago.

After 3 nights sleep my wife had urine leaks the 4th day while walking downhill and again on the 7th day walking on the flat. She has slight pain in the lower abdomen region.

She’s 58 years old, 32 years ago, at the birth of her last daughter she had a prolapse, she had recovery therapy and has been fine since.

Could this be a natural re-adaptation phenomena and should we persist and continue or

Should we put the head at 8 centimeters (4 inches) and work up progressively.

Yesterday we put the bed on a 8 cm incline to try, today again my wife had urine leaks while walking.

We are a concerned and would like to have an idea, Have you ever heard about this kind of thing? What do you suggest?

Thank you

ANDREW'S RESPONSE

 

My son's partners mum had a prolapse which she was told required corrective surgery. The good news is, it went back all by itself and has never presented a problem since. It takes quite a while for muscles to tone back up, which in turn hold the bladder in it's correct position.

It may be beneficial as you say, to raise the bed by 8cm and increase once the problem has subsided. What may be happening, and I suspect this is the case, is that oedema is being drawn back into the circulation and this is causing increased urination. If this is the case than it should resolve once oedema has been eliminated. Oedema can be stored all around the body and can be moved to the ankles initially while the pressure changes in the veins catch up with it. Hope this makes sense. kind regards Andrew

No more waking up to pee (nocturia)

A healthy 70 year old friend of mine began inclined bed therapy around July of 2015.

 

Prior to raising his bed he was waking up every 2 hours during the night to pee.

 

Within the first two weeks of raising his bed he noted that he either slept straight through the night or woke up to pee one time. 

 

Today is September 18, 2015 and he still has great bladder control during sleep thanks to the inclined bed

 

Thank you Andrew Fletcher.

Better Sleep, Better Bladder Control

I've inclined my bed by 6 inches (150mm) and can't believe what a difference its made to my sleeping. I used to awake a minimum of 3 times a night to visit the loo, but no more. Until I started this 5 days ago I couldn't remember the last time I slept for more than 2 hours, but now I sleep for 6 hours straight! Thank you!
