Are you dealing with at home again "wet accidents"? Search for the cause!

Soaked bed and unhappy child. This is an image familiar to many families. Wetting, or enuresis is a common, but fortunately rather transitory state. If they disappear to 5 year old child, majority is not a serious problem. Which children may be threatened by the emergence of enuresis and why?

From Stress to constipation

Enuresis can have many causes, from bodily mentally. Most often enuresis in children and adults causes:
Small bladder - a body may be insufficiently developed to maintain urine
Urinary tract infection - makes it difficult to control bladder (Other symptoms include burning, frequent urination or pink urine)
Stress, fear, insecurity - children can unsettle the birth of a sibling, changing schools or sleeping in a strange environment,
neurological problems (eg state after stroke)
swelling of the prostate,

sleep apnea - bedwetting can be a symptom of the state where the child during sleep for a short time ceases to breathe (often due to enlarged tonsils or when inflammation)
Chronic constipation - the muscles controlling urination and defecation control, if constipation is a long-term problem, muscles become dysfunctional and thereby contribute to the development of enuresis.

Imbalance in the body

On enuresis may be involved in hormonal imbalance, especially disorders production of antidiuretic hormone (ADH). This reduces the production of urine during the night, which helps to maintain it during sleep. If the body does not form enough of this hormone, urine is higher and this can lead to enuresis. In diabetes again urine contains a higher amount of glucose (blood sugar). Glucose increases the osmolarity and thus to be able to receive even more water. This increases the amount of urine, which again may lead to "wet" accidents.

What increases the risk of enuresis

Not accurately described that children are more vulnerable enuresis. It appears that the development of this problem involving many different factors. To known factors as development enuresis concerned include:
sex - during early childhood risks are similar for both sexes, older children is the probability of enuresis up to 2 times higher in boys
family history - if a close relative suffered from enuresis, the baby has a higher risk of the development,
ADHD - children suffering from hyperactivity disorder ADHD is more frequent bedwetting.
