SCRMC HealthBreak | Pediatric Nocturnal Enuresis

Posted on September 17, 2018

Pediatric nocturnal enuresis is involuntary urination that happens while sleeping after the age a person should be able to control his or her bladder. Lacey Blakeney, a family nurse practitioner at South Central Urology Clinic, says it is actually quite common. A nocturnal enuresis diagnosis requires certain conditions. There are two types of nocturnal enuresis: primary and secondary.

If you think your child may have nocturnal enuresis, the health care providers at South Central Urology Clinic can assess and diagnose your child’s symptoms. It could be caused by many factors including behavior issues, psychological issues, and a urinary tract infection. Medications, behavioral therapy, and a reward system are recommended.
