The medical term for this condition is ENURESIS.
When bed wetting accidentally occurs, weather in day or night, after the age when one should have bladder control is called enuresis.
For older child it is really embarrassing when he wets the bed. It is a bad feeling for this child. You have to be supportive and should not punish him for that.
After your child achieves bladder control he or she should not wet the bed. If he does it may be due to some sort of infection or psychological condition. The treatment for enuresis is possible and I will discuss it in my next blog. Let’s us now say in which condition bed wetting may occur.
DEVELOPMENTAL DELAY: The child usually reaches developmental milestones in certain age. Such as sitting in 6-7 months, walking in 12-13 months. These points of achievement is called developmental milestone. Due to immature nervous system, may be caused by some disease, the children cannot sense that the bladder is full.
TOO SMALL BLADDER: In some children, they may have a small bladder, so the capacity. As a result they urinate more frequently.
LESS ANTIDIURETICHORMONE (ADH): there is an important hormone secreted from posterior pituitary gland in brain. This hormone is important for water management of the body. It works on kidney and instructs the kidney to conserve the water within the body. In some patient this hormone is low, so more urine is produced.
PSYCHOSOCIAL FACTORS: It does not directly cause bed wetting but may be related to this disease. When a child face difficult situation, in home or in school, of any kind, he may wet the bed. Let me give you some example e.g. when he is bullied by other student, teacher say harsh word to him, parent scold or rebuke daily or loss of good friend or pet etc. In these situations child may become emotionally vulnerable and wet the bet. It may be temporary or permanent. This factor play role in both primary and secondary enuresis.
