About one out of every fifty young adults has a problem with Bed-wetting. Fortunately, help is available, and the problem can be controlled or cured in the majority. Bed-wetting seems like an insurmountable problem for young adults who would like to enter into an intimate interpersonal relationship, attend college and live in a dormitory, or otherwise share living accommodation with friends when they leave home to go to school or start a career. Don't Give up. Our understanding of Bed-wetting is growing and new treatments are available.
Bed-wetting is often associated with childhood. Indeed, up to one-quarter of children experience problems with nocturnal enuresis, or urinating while asleep. Most children grow out of the condition when their bladders become larger and better developed.
Posted by Jennifer Hines. Bed-wetting also known as sleep enuresis and urinary incontinence is a fairly common condition in young children and is seen as a sign of an immature, developing bladder. In fact, most doctors don't consider bed-wetting in children to be a sign of a problem unless the child is older than seven years old, or the child has begun wetting the bed again after six months of maintaining overnight bladder control. However, when adults wet the bed it is often an indication of an underlying illness, disease, or a symptom of other untreated medical conditions.
