The sudden change is probed to determine what suddenly changed, and this could be psychological stress, urinary tract infection, diabetes, and some other situational changes. There is something certain that is responsible for this type of bedwetting.

Causes of Enuresis

Studies show that enuresis mostly results from genetic factors inherited from parents. It is observed that the occurrence runs in the family line, and this is the most common cause of bedwetting. Other medical conditions, such as sleep apnea, urinary tract infections, diabetes, and epilepsy, can also be responsible for bedwetting.

The Antidiuretic Hormone ADH is responsible for reducing urine production. When this hormone is not properly formed, an individual will experience a large amount of urine production, which leads to bedwetting.

Other causes of Enuresis include

  • Problems with the Urinary Bladder
  • Weak contraction of the muscles of the opening of the bladder leads to a lack of control in urinating.
  • Stress, fear, constipation, and other worries can cause bedwetting
  • Spinal cord abnormalities can be responsible
  • Down’s syndrome and Spina Bifida
  • Poor development of the central nervous system affects the ability of a child to control urination when asleep.
  • The small bladder can also be responsible
  • Difficulty in waking up when asleep could be responsible

At this point, it is necessary to state that drinking plenty of water before bedtime is not liable for bedwetting, nor is it a behavioral problem such as laziness or outright effort by children to hurt parents.
