Experts call for greater understanding of ‘bedwetting’ as a medical condition
- Bedwetting, also known as enuresis, is an uncontrollable leakage of urine while asleep1
- Bedwetting is common in children, with approximately 5–10% of 7-year-olds regularly wetting their beds and the problem may persist into teenage and adulthood2
- In most cases, bedwetting is a complex medical condition caused by over-production of urine at night or reduced capacity of the bladder, which can impact a child’s overall self-esteem, emotional well-being and day time functioning1 , 3
SAINT-PREX, Switzerland, May 27, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Recent survey findings highlighted there are misconceptions underlying bedwetting, a condition that is under-recognised and misunderstood by society and healthcare professionals.3,4 A frequent misconception of bedwetting is that the cause is psychological, rather than having a multifactorial pathophysiological basis.1 , 4 Furthermore, the survey revealed that not only parents but also health care providers share this misconception and treatment was not necessarily consistent with guidelines.4
“For physicians to effectively treat bedwetting, any existing behavioural issues must be managed as a separate condition,” said Dr. Michal Maternik, Department of Urology, Division of Paediatric Urology, Medical University of Gdansk, Poland. “The survey findings highlight the need for new educational initiatives to optimise the understanding of bedwetting and provision of care amongst the medical community, parents and the public.”
Bedwetting can lead to feelings of shame and low self-esteem, preventing many patients from seeking treatment.3 , 4 According to the new survey, patients and their respected caregivers reported bedwetting to be associated with behavioural difficulties including, ‘sustaining attention’ (28%), ‘maintaining attention at school’ (29%), and sleeping difficulties (21%) resulting in repercussions on school performance.4 These consequences are often prolonged as many parents seek lifestyle changes first and nearly half of them do not seek help in children five years or older.4
“For decades, bedwetting was considered as a simple condition that would resolve spontaneously,” said Professor Serdar Tekgül at the Department of Urology at Hacettepe University, Turkey. “Bedwetting is now regarded as a complex disorder involving several factors such as bladder dysfunction, and the over-production of urine at night”.
The survey was completed by physicians and patients in Alpe-Adria, Italy, Romania, Russia, Serbia and Slovakia on their understanding of the medical condition, its impact on the lives of patients and the prevalence of comorbidities.4
Bedwetting, also known as enuresis, is an uncontrollable leakage of urine while asleep in children from aged 5 years.1 In most cases it is caused by over-production of urine at night or reduced capacity of the bladder.2 An inability to wake up can be another cause.2 Bedwetting does not have a psychological cause.1 Bedwetting is a common childhood medical condition, with approximately 5–10% of 7 year-olds regularly wetting their beds and the problem may persist into teenage and adulthood.2
