Enuresis (bed wetting)

Bed wetting is quite a common problem in children.

As a rule, a delayed maturation in a part of the brain responsible for the production of hormones controlling the production of urine is the cause.

This is the case for enuresis nocturna – bed wetting at night – in particular. This form of bed wetting can be treated well with medication.

Alternative treatments such as alarm trousers which wake children at night are also very effective.

Urological testing to check on any neurological damage is necessary in any case. The diagnosis shows quite clearly whether it is a case of physiological delayed maturation or a basic neurological illness.

The parents do not need to worry as the basic tests are not stressful.
