How safe are bed wetting alarms?

How safe are bed wetting alarms?

Completely safe: The safest most effective means of treating mono symptomatic bed wetting is the enuresis alarm. It has no side effects, requires no monthly copays, and never expires. It will cure about 85% of pts who awaken.

Could bed wetting be cancerous or kidney problem related?

Not cancer related: Wetting can be due to low antidiuretic hormone production which prevents kidney from reabsorbing filtered water. This results in excessive volume of urine produced. Severely damaged kidneys can also have a problem retaining water, so called diabetes insipidus (not diabetes mellitus/sugar diabetes) which results in urine overproduction and bedwetting. Most bedwetting in kids clears up with time. Read more

If my 13yo daughter previously had no problems with bed wetting but has had two episodes in the last month should I do anything?

If my 13yo daughter previously had no problems with bed wetting but has had two episodes in the last month should I do anything?

Probably yes: So-called secondary enuresis (onset of bedwetting in someone who has not been doing that for a long while) especially in a teenage is worth exploring. In girls, a common cause is a bladder infection, so a visit to the pediatrician or family doctor would be a good start. For a full physical exam, other common causes are increased stress. Read more
