Bed Wetting

Nocturnal enuresis, commonly called bedwetting, is involuntary urination while asleep after the age at which bladder control usually occurs. Nocturnal enuresis is considered primary (PNE) when a child has not yet had a prolonged period of being dry. Secondary nocturnal enuresis (SNE) is when a child or adult begins wetting again after having stayed dry.

Bedwetting is the most common childhood urologic complaint and one of the most common pediatric-health issues.Most bedwetting, however, is just a developmental delay—not an emotional problem or physical illness.


  • Delay in neurological development is the chief bed wetting cause. In such cases, the brain of a child learns the proper functioning of the bladder after the usual time and so if bedwetting persists after 5 years bed wetting remedy should focus on it.
  • Some children wet their bed as the ability of staying dry develops later in them and this is one major bed wetting cause.
  • In some cases, bed wetting is found to be a genetic disorder.
  • Reduced rate of antidiuretic hormone production can also be bed wetting cause.


  • Wetting of bed during sleep is the predominant symptom and any bed wetting remedy seeks to address it.
  • Pain during urination is another symptom.
  • Constipation is also common among children who have the problem of enuresis.
