Bedwetting causes and treatments for adults, children and teens
While once thought of as something only little kids experienced, studies show that at least 2% of adults lose control of urination during the night. This is bedwetting or Nocturnal Enuresis (NE). This is not to be confused with Nocturia—waking 2 or more times per night to void. It is important to note that bedwetting is unintentional and is not something that can be voluntarily controlled at any age.
Also known as Persistent Primary Nocturnal Enuresis, this condition begins during childhood, where nighttime dryness has not been achieved for longer than 6 months. About 2-3% of male and female adults older than 18 years of age have this type of nocturnal enuresis. Click here for more information about pediatric bedwetting.
Also known as Adult Onset Secondary Enuresis, this condition is defined as bedwetting affecting adults, typically people who are closer to 60 years of age. These are people who have achieved dryness at some point in their lives, possibly staying dry for years, but who find themselves suffering from nighttime wetting as they get older.
