Bed wetting is a common issue among children. In another word it is called enuresis. Enuresis often occurs among boys then girls.
The real cause is yet to know but in a small number , it may be due to urinary tract infection , childhood diabetes , neurological deficit or development delay. Some children are sound sleepers and do not wake to the stimulus of a full bladder. Normally the body tends to ‘slow down” the production of the urine at night and this is achieved by a hormone called the anti- diuretic hormone (ADH). However if it continues after the age of seven or causing distress for the child or family, professional help is recommended for treatment.
