What is Pediatric Enuresis?
Enuresis refers to involuntary urination, which often happens at night ( nocturnal enuresis ), and is very common among young children, especially when first transitioning out of diapers. Nocturnal enuresis affects more than five million children over the age of six years old in the United States and also tends to be more prevalent in boys than girls.
Common causes of enuresis may be:
- Delayed bladder maturation
- Fluid intake concentrated in the evenings
In some cases, bedwetting can be a sign of a more serious health condition including:
- Sleep apnea or other sleep issues
How is Enuresis Diagnosed?
A formal diagnosis for enuresis may stem from a combination of the following:
- Urinalysis testing to check for diabetes, other illness, or infection.
- Medical history evaluation including fluid intake, bladder and bowel function, a family history of bedwetting, and any other significant symptoms.
- If structural urinary tract abnormalities are suspected, imaging tests may be ordered at the discretion of the healthcare provider
When to see a Bedwetting Specialist
If bedwetting persists beyond the occasional accident, it could become a serious source of frustration both for you and your child when it is happening night after night. This can cause self-esteem issues, embarrassment, and emotional stress and social anxiety for children who may be afraid to stay at a friend’s house overnight, travel or attend sleepaway camp. Most children will outgrow bedwetting as they mature, but if they do not, then medical intervention may be necessary.
If your child continues to wet the bed regularly or if they express concern or are uncomfortable about their bedwetting, our pediatric urology specialists recommend scheduling a bedwetting consultation.
