"Depends": In the short term you should consider using adult diapers which can be found at most pharmacies or the drug section of box stores.

What should I do about my teenage daughter's bedwetting problem?

What should I do about my teenage daughter's bedwetting problem?

Talk w/ Pediatrician: Bed wetting is actually normal up until about the age of 12. However, if bed wetting persists beyond that age, it is time to have a discussion with your pediatrician. It may be a physical problem with the muscles that keep the bladder closed until one is ready to urinate, or it could be a psychological issue, or a combination thereof. Your pediatrician can best advise you on a course of action. ...Read more

My age is 25. Still i had Bed wetting problem. Like once in a month or 2months. How to cure this?

Nocturnal enuresis: Bedwetting is a relative common condition in the pediatric population. In most cases, it is hereditary and self-resolves by age 11-12 yrs old. For cases that persist past age 12, I usually recommend an evaluation by a urologist. At your age, I definitely feel that such an evaluation is warranted. This type of specialist can determine whether or not you have a urinary tract problem. ...Read more

Bed wetting problem even if I drink one cup at dinner. What can I do?

Discuss with your Dr: Worth trying an enuresis alarm for a few weeks, and/or demopressin (ddavp) which will reduce nocturnal urine production, or long acting antimuscarinic drugs to enlarge functional bladder capacity such as oxybutinin er, Detrol la, vesicare (solifenacin) etc. Imipramine works for many. Good luck. ...Read more

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

He is facing problem of bed wetting. His ultrasound report shows that his bladder volume is 133 cc. Please give some advise.

Bedwetting: The majority of children will have the bedwetting resolve as they mature. Restricting fluids in the evening, avoiding all caffeine, emptying the bladder just before bed and possibly getting up to void in the night can all help. Bed wetting alarms can help, particularly at this age. Ddavp (desmopressin) is a safe medication that can be prescribed as well. Discuss with pediatrician or urologist. ...Read more

Sleep Apnea: About 10% children that age would snore in their sleep, but only 1-3% of snorers have obstructive sleep apnea. Possible causes are; enlarged tonsil/adenoids, obesity, genetic syndromes such as down's syndrome, family history of sleep apnea. I recommend her pediatrician evaluate to rule out apnea.

How to stop bedwetting ?

Very difficult: Bedwetting (enuresis) indicates that the control mechanisms of the automatic (autonomic) nervous system are irritable.
